Other casting announced by Netflix for The Witcher includes the actors playing Ciri, Queen Calanthe and Eist.
Here’s the cast of Netflix’s The Witcher so far:
Geralt of Rivia - Henry Cavill
Superman actor Henry Cavill was announced in the main role of Geralt back in September, making The Witcher his first TV role since leaving The Tudors in 2010.
Ciri - Freya Allan
Cintra princess and Geralt’s ward Ciri will be brought to life by Freya Allan, a young actress who has appeared in AMC’s Into the Badlands and will soon star in the BBC’s upcoming adaptation of The War of the Worlds.
This casting of a white actress to play Ciri follows a rumour that producers were looking for a BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) actress to play the character, sparking controversy among some fans of the videogame.
Queen Calanthe - Jodhi May
The ruler of the realm of Cintra is to be played by Jodhi May, who recently appeared in the Einstein series of Genius and has a history of appearing in costume dramas like Emma, Daniel Deronda and Tipping the Velvet.
