Colin Salmon and Antonia Thomas are to guest star in the second series of BBC One’s The Musketeers, which is currently filming in Prague.
The series stars Luke Pasqualino, Tom Burke, Santiago Cabrera and Howard Charles.
Salmon and Thomas will appear together as father and daughter, with the former Die Another Day actor playing Tariq, a mysterious interloper on the run from Spain.
Executive producers, Adrian Hodges and Jessica Pope, said: “We’re excited to welcome an actor of Colin’s reputation to The Musketeers. He will bring wonderful charisma and sense of mystery to the role.
“We’ve also been aware for some time of Antonia’s wonderful work in films and TV series such as Sunshine On Leith and Misfits, among numerous others. She brings such intelligence and vibrancy to every role she plays and we are thrilled to have her as Samara.”
This episode is written by Lucy Catherine and Adrian Hodges and directed by Mark Jobst.
Earlier this year it was announced that former Hustle actor Marc Warren is to join the show as the Comte De Rochefort – described as a man nursing many secrets and a very dark past.
Warren’s character will replace Peter Capaldi’s Cardinal Richelieu as the show’s chief villain.
