The BBC has confirmed Colin Salmon (Die Another Day, Resident Evil) and Antonia Thomas (Misfits, The Deep) will guest star in the second series of The Musketeers on BBC One.

Colin will play Tariq, a mysterious interloper on the run from Spain, and Antonia will play his daughter Samara, a gutsy and resilient young woman whose life is put in danger when her father is exiled – in an episode written by Lucy Catherine and Adrian Hodges.

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.”

Marc Warren has already been announced as joining the cast as the new series villain Comte De Rochefort.

The Musketeers is currently filming in Prague.
