Dylan Moran has been cast alongside Lenny Henry and The Nest's Mirren Mack in Netflix's The Witcher prequel, The Witcher: Blood Origin.

They join Irish Vikings actor Laurence O'Fuarain, Giri/Haji star Sophia Brown and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon's Michelle Yeoh in the six-part, live-action prequel.

Netflix says: "Set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of The Witcher, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time - the creation of the first prototype Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal in 'conjunction of the spheres', when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one."

The cameras on the limited series began rolling earlier this month.
