Pakistani-American actor Faran Tahir is all set to appear in the current season of American fantasy TV series The Magicians. Popular for his roles in Star Trek, Scandal and Iron Man, the actor’s character/look has been revealed by Syfy recently, via behind-the-scenes video promo. Similar to other characters featured on the show, Faran has been styled in a unique manner using special makeup techniques to get the perfect look to fit into the magical genre of the show. The promo also reveals Tahir’s character in the play, where he will be essaying the role of ‘The Great Cock of the Darkling Woods’.
Tahir’s character is the brother of Winter’s Doe/The White Lady, who was featured in the second season of the show. ‘The Great Cock of the Darkling Woods’ is a magical creature, who serves as an aid to the High King of Fillory, Eliot Waugh. While the character is primarily menacing, he also has a wicked sense of humor which is why him and Eliot end up connecting with each other.
The Magicians is based on a novel of the same name. The third season of the show has already gone on air on January 10, 2018.
