The Witcher Netflix series casts Ciri and Yennefer

The Witcher Casting Reveals Who is Playing Ciri Yen & More

We already have our Geralt of Rivia in Henry Cavill, and now we know who'll be joining him for The Witcher Netflix series.

Freya Allan (Into the Badlands), a 17-year-old native of Oxfordshire, will play Ciri, the Princess of Cintra, which is an important kingdom in The Witcher saga.

Allan's Ciri, Princess of Cintra, will be joined by other characters from the court at Cintra including Queen Calanthe (Jodhi May, Game of Thrones, Genius) and her husband, the knight Eist (Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Fortitude), along with the druid Mousesack (Adam Levy, Knightfall, Snatch).

Additionally, the sorceress Yennefer will be played by Anya Chalotra (Wanderlust).

Cavill, meanwhile, plays the lead role of The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia. For the role of Ciri specifically, Hissrich said that they saw over 200 actresses audition for the role before landing on Allan.

"It's time for a Twitter hiatus", she wrote back in September. Hissrich told The Hollywood Reporter however that full-production will be starting soon. One, this property has such a passionate fanbase.

She added that she understood the immediate reaction and explained that it's part of the business, "I think that's just part of making a television show, and especially a show this big".

In an interview with THR, Hissrich spoke about the casting process, saying "There were some people who I had in mind from the minute I started writing this character and then there were other characters - Ciri is the flawless example - that take a really exhaustive search". I think coming in as a writer and saying my vision might look different than yours is scary for fans, but truthfully I don't think it has to be. We met in early April and had a very general meeting. That couldn't be further from the truth.

The Witcher is the story of monster hunter Gerald as he struggles to find his place in a world "where people often prove more wicked than beasts", according to the logline. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a risky secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together. That being said, what I really tried to steer away from is that the video games right now are the sole visual representation of these stories and we needed to create our own visual representation.
