Netflix has officially cast the female leads for its ‘The Witcher’ series, based on the original books by Andrzej Sapkowski. Revealed earlier today by showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich in an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Hissrich revealed that actors Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra have been cast in the roles of Ciri and Yennefer, respectively. The two will play their roles alongside Henry Cavill, who was already confirmed as Geralt of Rivia.
Ciri is the young princess of Cintra and, if the recent script leak revealing the villain is to be believed, will likely feature heavily at the heart of the plot. Yennefer is a sorceress and Geralt’s main love interest.
