The actor starred in one of recent years' biggest hit series.

The third season of The Witcher introduced fans to a large number of new characters, but Radovid was undoubtedly one of the most striking.

In the adaptation, Radovid has aged and changed from King Vizimir's son to his younger and more intelligent brother. In addition, Radovid has a romantic relationship with Jaskier, as was previously reported.

Radovid was played by Hugh Skinner. The actor began his career on the stage and has appeared in theaters such as the Royal Bath, the English Touring Theatre, and the National Theatre in London, as well as voicing for audio plays.

After supporting roles in the series Bonkers and Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Skinner was invited to join the filming of the detective series Law & Order: UK.

Already in 2012, Skinner managed to star in a truly major project that won three Oscars – Les Miserables, in which the actor played a character named Joly, who died on the barricades along with his other comrades during the June Rebellion.

Hugh's next major project was the drama series Poldark, where he played Unwin Trevaunance. According to the plot, an aristocrat returns home from the war, but everything is not the same as it was – his father was killed, and his wife, who thought he was dead, became engaged to his cousin.

The most notable project of the actor was the role in the TV series by Phoebe Waller-Bridge – Fleabag. Skinner played Harry, the ex-boyfriend of the main character in the first season. Unexpectedly, even for the show's creator, show became a hit, winning numerous awards, and was renewed for a second season (only to receive even more praise).

Most viewers could see the actor in the sequel to the famous movie Mamma Mia, where Hugh played the young Harry, while the adult version of the character was played by Colin Firth.

In the next project the actor managed to play one of the main roles.

The movie Falling for Figaro tells the whole story of Millie, who is ready to do anything to fulfill her biggest dream – to sing opera. She quits her job and travels to the Scottish outback, where a retired opera singer teaches her the art. Skinner plays Max, another student of the former opera diva.
