HELLBOY Reboot Adds Penelope Mitchell As Ganeida The Witch

Earlier this week we found out the actor Ed Skrein (Deadpool, Game of Thrones) would be departing the Hellboy reboot following accusations of whitewashing, but today we do have another casting announcement about the project. Hemlock Grove and Between Worlds actress Penelope Mitchell will play a minor character from the comics, Ganeida the Witch.

This news comes from  Deadline, and Ganeida is described as “an elder witch who has decided that Nimue’s [The Blood Queen] wrath has gone on for too long and must be stopped.” It seems like even with Skrein leaving it hasn’t affected production very much.

Hellboy is set to commence shooting soon and is scheduled for a 2018 release.
