Roy Dotrice (1923-2017) was the celebrated actor who portrayed King Balor in Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. He was born on Guernsey, served with the R.A.F. and spent nearly three years as a prisoner of war in a German prison camp during WWII.
These small coïncidences weighed somewhat in his favor during casting for this part.
