The role of Stelmaria was recast ahead of the third and final series of the show, with Victoria Hamilton (The Crown) voicing the character for the final eight episodes.

The final series, which is adapted from Phillip Pullman’s The Amber Spyglass, sees Lyra (Dafne Keen) attempt to escape from the clutches of her mother, Mrs Coulter (Ruth Wilson), all whilst Lord Asriel (James McAvoy) wages war against the Authority.

His Dark Materials airs on BBC One in the UK and HBO in the US.
