The Witcher Netflix Series: First Characters Confirmed
While the video game series popularised Geralt of Rivia’s adventures, the TV series will be taking its inspiration from the original novels. So while the characters involved are familiar to gamers, the stories may not be.
Geralt will obviously be in there as he is the focus of the main story. Joining him in the show will be Yennefer, Triss, Ciri, Roach, Emperor Emhyr and Dandelion.

I read that character appearance will be based on the game as to not alienate the fans of the game completely. :D

I can't imagine Cavill na may long hair. >.> but even if it works, I feel na Cavill might not have time to commit to a tv series, but that's just me.

At hindi pwedeng sumabay sa Justice League movies. Kawawa ang mga CG guys pag kailangan tanggalin ang bigote at balbas ni Henry. :rofl:

WITCHER NETFLIX SHOW LOOKS TO CAST BAME CIRI, AND FANS HAVE HAD ENOUGH
The casting call for Ciri in The Witcher on Netflix has gone out, and the description clearly states that they’re looking for a black, Asian, minority, or ethnic teenager who is around 15 or 16 years old and must not be older than 18. The role calls for someone who can play down to 13 or 14 years of age.

The information for the role was posted up over on the National Youth Theatre website for auditions.

It clearly states that for the role of Cirilla: The Lion Cub of Cintra, they’re looking for a “BAME girl”…
Looking for a 16 or 15 year old BAME girl who can play down to 13/14. Must not be older than 18 years old.

“Resilient, Relentless, Brazen, Growing.

I think the choice says little about diversity and politcal correctness. TV already has a badass Caucasian with white hair and Netflix would want to cast away from that likeness for viewers not familiar with the books and games.

But with that aside, still feels wrong that any writer would consider anything else but what's on the source material. But then again, why most tv and movie adaptation of video games doesn't work is because gamer critics puts the source material in high regard that nothing else would even come close to it's perceived perfections.

Anyway, still in casting so there's still time for Netflix to adjust, specially with that big of a backlash.

If only there are no ties to the source material, changing the characters could work.

Like in the Uncharted movie. A young Drake is okay. But if he's the star of the movie, it's very different from the Nathan Drake that we love as the main character is already an adult.

For sure there is backlash.

In Doctor Strange, they gender-swapped The Ancient One from a male Asian to a female White.

Well, for sure purist and book readers shall be the fierce critics of this Netflix show.
Kahit Witcher 3 lang yun nalaro ko pero sana mag-attempt naman ang Netflix to follow as close as possible to the books or at least to the games man lang.
Sa Witcher FB groups nga minsan nakaka-encounter ako ng mga book elitist at kung paano nila maliitin yun ginawa sa games.

I've been meaning to read the books but it's an uphill battle as I know I will be changing what I know I about the Witcher as I heard that the books are different.

Apparently, Cavill will have time to play Geralt after all, he's out as Superman.

Marami din tutol sa pagpili kay Cavill. Yun looks at yun form daw nya ay medyo malayo sa Geralt na alam nila.

^A bit of makeup and less muscle supplements will fix that. :lol:

I have my doubts as well but it's really too early to tell if Cavill will suck or not. On set pictures first.

BTW, rumor is that the producers are now considering/interviewing a polish child actress for the role of Ciri. That's good, I guess..

The articles didn't have photos of the actresses but after doing some quick Google search, I think the actresses look good for the role.
