Who is in the cast of Britannia season 2?

In the new series of Britannia, Mackenzie Crook takes on two roles, including a brand new character.

Crook will reprise his original role from season one, the druid Veran. But he will also star as Harka, also known as The Dead Man.

Harka is Veran’s brother, who awakens from the dead to challenge him.

Crook is an English actor, director and comedian who rose to fame for playing Gareth Keenan in The Office.

He then went on to star in Ragetti in the Pirates of the Caribbean films and Orell in Game of Thrones.

Crook is also the creator and star of BBC Four’s Detectorists, for which he won a BAFTA Award for Best Writing.

General Aulus Plautius – David Morrissey

David Morrisey reprises his role as General Aulus Plautius in Britannia.

In the new series, Aulus is “romanising” willing Celt tribes with the help of Celtic Queen Amena (played by Annabel Scholey).

However, his violent behaviour in crushing those who resist converting raises suspicions he may have other plans.

Morrissey is best known for playing The Governor in the third, fourth and fifth series of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

He is also well known for his stage career, working with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre in his early career.

Morrissey was nominated for a BAFTA for his role as Stephen Collins in state of Play and won a Royal Television Society for playing Gordon Brown in The Deal.

Eleanor Worthington Cox stars as Cait in Britannia season two.

Cait is a Cantii and is the only form of hope for the Druids and Celts to resist Aulus.

She is being trained by outcast Druid Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) to help try and save Britannia from the Romans.

Cox is an Olivier winner and BAFTA-nominated actress, best known for her stage career.

Cox, who is 18-years-old, was the youngest recipient of an Olivier Award at age 10 for her portrayal of Matilda in Matilda the Musical.

In 2016, she was nominated for A BAFTA for her portrayal of Janet Hodgson in the Enfield Haunting.

Steve Pemberton joins the cast of Britannia season two as Emperor Claudius.

Pemberton will make his debut in the first episode, riding in on an elephant.

Speaking to Chortle.co.uk, Pemberton said: “As soon as I read the stage direction ‘The Emperor rides in on an elephant’ I just knew this was the part for me.

“Throw in piles, a stutter and a warm Roman bath with David Morrissey and the deal was done before I’d finished the script.

“Britannia is big, bold and beautiful and it was a joy to be asked to briefly reign over the madness as Claudius.”

Pemberton is an English actor, comedian and writer, best known for being part of The League of Gentleman comedy troupe alongside Matt Gatiss, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson.

Pemberton also co-wrote and starred in the sitcom Psychoville and Inside No 9.

His other credits include Doctor Who, Benidorm, Shameless and Happy Valley.

Other cast members starring in Britannia season two are:

  • Fortunato Cerlino as Vespasian
  • Annabel Scholey as Amena
  • Barry Ward as Sawyer
  • Zoë Wanamaker as Queen Antedia
  • Joe Armstrong as Gildas
