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

The Witcher Casting Reveals Who is Playing Ciri Yen & More

Adam Levy will play Mousesack the Druid; MyAnna Buring the head of a magical academy named Tissaia (with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as two apprentice sorcerers, Fringilla and Sabrina); and lastly, Millie Brady will play an outcast princess, Renfri.

However, Hissrich also noted, "One of the things I feel most strongly about is people being afraid that we're going to strip out the cultural context of The Witcher, to remove its Slavic roots, the very thing people in Poland are proud of".

She continued: "In terms of why people responded so strongly, I think the fans really have pictures of these characters in their minds and I don't blame them for that". I get it. When I read my favourite books I certainly imagine characters a certain way. The series is based on the book series by author Andrzej Sapkowski (which also inspired a bestselling video game franchise) and is an epic saga revolving around Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), a solitary monster hunter who struggles to find his place in the world, but whose destiny hurtles him towards a powerful sorceress and a young princess.

Word of Ciri's casting has been a point of contention for Witcher fans. Over 200 people auditioned for the role of Ciri alone.

Cavill is a huge star, but he'll be surrounded by a lot of new faces in the cast. I actually went to London to meet with her in person and we knew it right away. Truthfully, the controversy about Ciri, my own politics or the fact that I'm a woman, to me, just interacting with the fans has helped an enormous amount, because they see I'm on their side.

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 ideal example - that take a really exhaustive search".
