Why Zola from The Witcher looks so familiar – Looper

WhileThe Witcher isn't exactly a period piece it's set somewhere and some time that vaguely resembles medieval Europe, just with magic and mythical monsters Plowman is well-versed in that particular genre, having appeared on showsset in eras and places without smartphones, adequate plumbing, and women's liberation.

In 2003, the New Zealand native had a small part as Melinda on the BBC drama Cambridge Spies, which tells the the true story of a group of Brits who spied for the Soviets before, during, and after World War II. A year later, Plowman appeared on another BBC period drama:He Knew He Was Right, based on an 1869 novel by author Anthony Trollope. She portrayedCaroline Spalding, an American woman who marries a wealthy son of an English lord. In 2006,she played a murder victim on an episode of Agatha Christie's Marple, a reboot of the beloved British detective series Miss Marple.

Fast forward nine years, and Plowman was still being cast in roles that demanded corsets and a stiff upper lip. In 2015, she made an appearance on the BBC dramaFather Brown, a detective series set in a small English village in the 1950s. The trend continued in 2016, but on a larger scale: Plowman appeared on seasons 3 and 4 of the swashbuckling high-seas-and-higher-drama pirate saga Black Sails, playing the chambermaid-turned-spy Mrs. Hudson. This also marked the third time she'd appeared onscreen alongside her real-life husband, British actorToby Stephens, whom you may know as John Robinson on Netflix'sLost in Space.
