Known for his roles in Star Trek and Iron Man, Pakistani-American actor Faran Tahir is set to appear in the current season of American fantasy TV series The Magicians.

Syfy released a video promo which introduces the look of Faran’s character. 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. His character name too is just as eccentric as his look, ‘The Great Cock of the Darkling Woods.’

His character is that of 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 it seems.

The Magicians is based on a novel of the same name. The third season of the show started airing on Syfy from the 10th of January.
