Season 1 of Arcane: League Of Legends, or simply Arcane, concluded yesterday, much to fans’ chagrin. But every cloud has a silver lining: Netflix has already renewed it for a second season. So, which actor voices sickly scientist Viktor, where else might you have seen (or heard) him, and what do we know about season 2’s release date?

Meet the voice actor behind Arcane’s Viktor: Harry Lloyd

In season 1 of Arcane, English actor Harry Lloyd voices Viktor. 

Born in London in 1983, 38-year-old Lloyd is the great-great-great-grandson of Victorian novelist and social critic Charles Dickens. 

His maternal ancestral line includes Captain Peter Dickens (a Royal Navy officer), Henry Fielding Dickens (Common Serjeant of London), Rear-Admiral Henry Blagrove and Bohemian pianist and composer Ignaz Moscheles. Lloyd’s father runs Curtis Brown, a literary agency.

He went to Eton College and studied English at Christ Church, Oxford. After a television debut opposite Daniel Radcliffe in the BBC’s 1999 adaptation of David Copperfield, Lloyd went on to tour with the Oxford University Dramatic Society. 

He made his professional stage debut in A Gaggle Of Saints at the Trafalgar Studios, alongside Jodie Whittaker.

What other films and TV series has he been in?

Before voicing Viktor in Arcane, the vast majority of Harry Lloyd’s acting roles were live action. 

His only two other voice acting credits are a 2016 episode of American Dad!, in which he played The Butcher, and a 2017 animated Game Of Thrones spinoff, in which he voiced Viserys Targaryen.
