Key role recast for A Discovery of Witches season 3
Irish actor Peter McDonald will replace Trystan Gavelle in the role of vampire Baldwin de Clermont.
Sky’s supernatural romance drama A Discovery of Witches will recast an important role for its upcoming third season.
Scheduling conflicts which arose as a result of COVID-19 restrictions mean that Trystan Gravelle has been forced to drop out of the role of vampire Baldwin de Clermont
He will be replaced by Peter McDonald who has previously appeared in BBC series like The Last Kingdom and Ripper Street.
De Clermont is the brother of vampire professor Matthew (Matthew Goode) and helped to defend his forbidden relationship with powerful witch Diana (Teresa Palmer) in season one.
While he only briefly appeared in season 2 during clashes with his nephew Marcus (Edward Bluemel), Montclair is set to play a larger role in the upcoming third outing.
“I’m delighted to be taking the role of Baldwin de Clermont into season three of A Discovery of Witches,” said McDonald when speaking to the Radio Times.
“I’m relishing the opportunity to tell this story with all the cast and crew at Bad Wolf Productions.”
The third season of a Discovery of Witches, which will be an adaptation of the last book in the Deborah Harkness’s All Souls trilogy, recently finished filming but an official release date is not yet known.
Both seasons of A Discovery of Witches are available to stream on NOW TV.
