The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has a huge cast, but among them it looks like none may be as well known as the voice behind the most powerful man among the game’s many factions, Nilfgaardian Emperor Emhyr var Emreis.

Behind this character is actor Charles Dance. Most recently, Dance is best known for playing the role of Tywin Lannister (or more casually as Taiwan Lannisters) on HBO’s mega hit Game of Thrones. Dance seems to be quite impressed with the advancements games have made in the last decade. The actor’s voice lends some serious gravitas to the character he plays and it seems like a very good fit from what we’ve seen so far.

As Dance notes, fantasy has gotten pretty dark, and he’s found himself a major player in the biggest show and one of the biggest games in the trend. Not too bad.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases May 19 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
