Triss Merigold gets cast for The Witcher TV show


Yesterday we had our first look at Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia for Netflix’s The Witcher TV show.

Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, 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.

One of the other main characters, Triss Merigold, a talented witch who is both an ally and love interest of Geralt, has now been cast. She will be played by Anna Shaffer. The English actress played Romilda Vane in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2. She also has a long-running role in the British soap opera Hollyoaks, and appeared in the Doctor Who spinoff series Class.

I assume they will be giving her the red hair that the character has.

Ciri, Princess of Cintra, will be played by Freya Allan (The War of the Worlds, Into The Badlands). Other characters from the court at Cintra include Queen Calanthe (Jodhi May, Game of Thrones, Genius), and her husband, the knight Eist (Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Fortitude), along with the druid Mousesack (Adam Levy, Knightfall, Snatch). The sorceress Yennefer will be played by Anya Chalotra (The ABC Murders, Wanderlust). Leading the magical academy at Aretuza is Tissaia (MyAnna Buring, Ripper Street, Kill List), and Yennefer is joined by other novice sorcerers Fringilla (Mimi Ndiweni, Black Earth Rising), Sabrina (Therica Wilson-Read, Profile). Also joining the cast is Millie Brady (The Last Kingdom, Teen Spirit) as the outcast Princess Renfri.

What are your thoughts on the casting of the show so far?
