Netflix’s The Witcher Series Casts Ciri and Yennefer

The Witcher Casting Reveals Who is Playing Ciri, Yen & More!

The cast for Netflix's upcoming adaption of The Witcher is filling out nicely, especially with the recent addition of Freya Allan as Ciri, Princess of Cintra, and Anya Chalotra as the sorceress Yennefer. Chalotra, a relatively new actress, now only has two acting credits in that of The ABC Murders and Wanderlust. Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in the DC cinematic universe, will portray Geralt of Rivia.

Jodhi May (Game of Thrones, Genius) has been cast as Cintra's Queen Calanthe, the grandmother of Ciri.

The drama is mainly based on the original Polish novels, and since the video game series is "the sole visual representation of these stories", Hirssch told THR her team needed to find their "own visual representation".

Last but not least, the casting of Millie Brady as Renfri indicates that we'll see how Geralt gets the moniker "The Butcher of Blaviken" as Renfri is a key figure in that short story.

The casting news comes after showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who previously produced Daredevil and The Defenders for Netflix's partnership with Marvel, took a brief hiatus from social media following some online backlash.

Speaking by phone from Rabaul police station, Constable Roy Michael said he felt the natural disaster but "it was not too strong". No damage has been reported, but PNG officials said they could not contact villages closest to the quake's epicentre.

Fans of both characters will be glad to learn that The Witcher Netflix Ciri and Yennefer will be receiving more prominent roles in the TV series.

"Casting The Witcher has been one of the biggest projects of my career and undoubtedly the most exciting", said Hissrich. The advertisement noted that The Witcher was looking to cast a "BAME actress" - that is, a Black, Asian, and/or minority ethnic actress - to play Ciri (via ComicBook.com). So it looks as though we're not too far away from seeing the show go into production.

She continued: "In terms of why people responded so strongly, I think the fans really have pictures of these characters in their minds and I don't blame them for that". It's only going to be as interesting as the people he interacts with.

Currently, The Witcher doesn't have a release window and the show is still in pre-production.
