First look: His Dark Materials season two

Hot on the heels of the announcement of new cast joining the second season of His Dark Materials, we now also have the first trailer and some more exciting news (particularly if you’re a Fleabag fan).

First of all, here’s the first trailer for season two which offers a good look at the Subtle Knife.

Plus, it’s been revealed who will voice the daemon of John Parry (Andrew Scott) and it’s none other than Phoebe Waller-Bridge!

Speaking about the revelation during the show’s Comic-Con@Home panel, Scott said the connection between human and daemon has echoes of his and Waller-Bridge’s closeness in real-life. “What’s beautiful to me about the books is the relationship with the dæmons and, I think this is the first time we are revealing this, but my dæmon is going to be played by someone who is very close to me in my real life: a young performer and writer called Phoebe Waller-Bridge,” he explained.

“The relationship is all about companionship, friendship, and loyalty and that’s what I feel about Phoebe in my real life so it’s wonderful that this is happening.”
