Netflix's The Witcher TV series casts Yennefer of Vengerberg and Ciri

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

Chalotra is also relatively new, but has a recurring role on the upcoming Netflix series Wanderlust.

Game of Thrones' Jodhi May will play Cintra's Queen Calanthe, Fortitude's Björn Hlynur Haraldsson will play Calanthe's knight husband Eist, and Knightfall's Adam Levy will play druid Mousesack.

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 upcoming series is based on the fantasy novels and short stories by Andrzej Sapkowski. From the beginning, they have only looked to cast the best actors for a given role. Canonically, Ciri is white, and the thought of an actress of color bringing her to life in a live-action series ruffled many fans' feathers.

Backlash eventually grew so intense that The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich took a break from Twitter to distance herself from negativity. Hissrich proceeded to take "a Twitter hiatus" after all "the hate" percolated on the web. And most importantly, who's going to play Roach, Geralt's trusty horse?

Now that we know Allan is playing Ciri, it seems that the casting call didn't carry much weight after all. "Be nice to each other, okay?"

"I think the fans really have pictures of these characters in their minds and I don't blame them for that". I rather like the idea of going with lesser known but experienced actors when doing adaptations like this so you can really sink into believing the characters are real instead of just Jack Black dressed up as a Witcher.

After all the controversy surrounding rumours that Ciri in The Witcher Netflix series would be played by a BAME actor, it turns out she's not. Destiny soon thrusts him together with Ciri, who holds a unsafe secret, and Yennefer as they navigate the Continent.

Hissrich also discussed the show more generally, which is hotly anticipated by many fans.

"Not specifically, nor were we looking for a movie star when we cast Henry". According to Hissrich, the show is now in pre-production.
