The Netflix version of The Witcher has just chosen it’s Yennefer and Ciri.
Freya Allan, known for The War of the Worlds and Bluebird has officially been cast in the role of Ciri, while Anya Chalotra, of Wanderlust and The ABC Murders fame will be taking the role of Yennefer [via Hollywood Reporter].
The pair will be joining Henry Cavill as series protagonist, Geralt.
The Witcher is one of the most beloved fantasy game (and book) series of all time, and fans all over the globe are desperately praying that Netflix does Geralt the justice he deserves when the games come to the small screen.
A Reddit user by the name of BWPhoenix took to the r/witcher subreddit to repost the audition scripts for The Witcher series, confirming that the lines won’t be appearing in the show, but could be a good indicator of what’s to come.
The two leaked scenes include Geralt and Yennefer exchanging some flirty banter, and Yennefer and “King.”
You can read the scenes in full right here, but here’s a snippet to make your life easier:
“Yennefer: Seriously consider your scars quite the conversation piece. This one I got from a feisty young basilisk. That one from the fangs of a bruxa. And this one I gave myself just to fill in the unmarred space in my pectoral region. Thought I should even it out a bit, you know?
“Geralt: That one is from you, you bit me.
“Yennefer: I know… Damn. It is tight.
“Geralt: It doesn’t matter, I’m not feeling well at all.
“Yennefer: Can you even get sick?
“Geralt: Witchers get colds, same as you.
“Yennefer: You really don’t want to go, do you?
“Geralt: I’m not meant for balls.”
