Netflix Releases “First Look” Images For ‘The Witcher’ Series Starring Henry Cavill
Netflix has just released a set of images for their upcoming, hotly anticipated, adaptation of ‘The Witcher‘ starring Henry Cavill in the lead role.
Based on the best-selling fantasy series of books, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
The show also stars Anya Cholatra (‘The ABC Murders’, ‘Wanderlust’) as the aforementioned powerful sorceress, Yennefer, and Freya Allan (‘The War of the Worlds’, ‘Into The Badlands’) as Ciri, the young princess.
Other previously announced cast include Jodhi May (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Genius’) as Calanthe, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson (‘Fortitude’) as Eist, Adam Levy (‘Knightfall’, ‘Snatch’) as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring (‘Ripper Street’, ‘Kill List’) as Tissaia, Mimi Ndiweni (‘Black Earth Rising’) as Fringilla, Therica Wilson-Read (‘Profile’) as Sabrina, and Emma Appleton (‘The End of The F**king World’) as Renfri, Eamon Farren (‘The ABC Murders’, ‘Twin Peaks’) as Cahir, Joey Batey (‘Knightfall’, ‘Strike’) as Jaskier, Lars Mikkelsen (‘House of Cards’, ‘Sherlock’) as Stregobor, Royce Pierreson (‘Wanderlust’, ‘Judy’) as Istredd, Maciej Musia? (‘1983’) as Sir Lazlo, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte (‘Jamillah & Aladdin’, ‘Dickensian’) as Dara, and Anna Shaffer (‘Harry Potter’) as Triss.
You can find all the images released today below, but if you’re wanting to know more, you’ll have to wait for San Diego Comic Con in a few weeks, when the series will hold a panel at 2:15 PM on 19th July in Hall H. Moderated by accomplished actress, host and beloved sci-fi fan Yvette Nicole Brown (‘Community’, ‘Mom’), the panel will include cast members Cavill, Chalotra, and Allan alongside showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.
