Antonia Thomas (Misfits) and Colin Salmon (Die Another Day) have joined the cast of BBC One’s The Musketeers for guest roles in the second series.

Series 2 began filming in Prague in April.

Salmon will play Tariq, “a mysterious interloper on the run from Spain”, while Thomas will play his daughter Samara, “a gutsy and resilient young woman whose life is put in danger when her father is exiled”.

Antonia Thomas played Alisha Daniels in the first three series of E4’s Misfits, while Colin Salmon played M’s chief of staff, Charles Robinson, in three of Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond movies.


Executive producers Adrian Hodges and Jessica Pope commented: “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.”

They added: “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.”
