The Witcher: the manufacturer is confident in Henry Cavill
The cast of The Witcher has completely turned on the audience, excited and impatient to see the “Superman” Henry Cavill in the role of Geralt, protagonist of the tv adaptation on Netflix. In a recent interview to the issuer and the Polish Onet Film, the creative producer of the series, Tomasz Baginski has declared as the public has every reason to be excited by the choice of Cavill as the protagonist.
“I am satisfied, the public will love him. Of course, I won't say more at the moment, you will see it directly on the small screen. Then Henry is a big boy, big and tall, I don't want to mess with him!” the words of Baginski, who then focuses on the critical you come to the choice of the rest of the cast “as far as criticism from the rest of the cast, are part of the game, they all have the right to criticize. We also paid to be exposed to this, and if someone writing on the internet to be irritated for the choices, you feel better, it means that we are doing our job, which is to entertain people. I understand that fans have great imagination and great expectations, but I can guarantee that anyone who appears in the series has been subjected to a rigid selection. Especially in Poland there is great expectation and apprehension about The Witcher, I repeat that everyone has their own vision of how things should be done to appear the best you can, but all of the choices of the actors were more weighted”.
At The Hollywood Reporter instead, the showrunner Lauren Hissrich has talked about how the series is distanzierà from the videogame saga (as I said, will be based mainly on the novels).
“For me, it is a situation a little bit prickly because I'm a big fan of video games, but at the moment the saga video game is the only version visual we have of the history and we must try to distance ourselves from this, trying to be original. From the moment that I started to develop the series, I stopped playing video games!”
The same Hissrich, previously, has defined The Witcher: “Build the cast of The Witcher has been one of the biggest projects of my career, without a doubt, the most exciting. I can't wait that these wonderful actors put in scene in these iconic characters, and loved, and share these stories with special, viewers all over the world.”
Four episodes, including the first, will be directed by Alik Sakharov (House of Cards, The Throne of Swords), while Alex Garcia Lopez (Marvel – Luke Cage, Utopia) and Charlotte Brändström (Outlander – The last viking, Counterpart, and Money) will direct two episodes each. In the cast, in addition to the already announced Henry Cavill in the role of Geralt of Riva, there will also be Freya Allan (The war of the worlds, Into The Badlands) in the role of Ciri.
The other characters of the court of Cintra include the Queen Calanthe (Jodhi May – The Throne of Swords, Genius), and her husband, the knight Eist (Björn Hlynur Haraldsson – Fortitude), along with the druid Saccoditopo (Adam Levy – Knightfall, Snatch – tearing).
The sorceress Yennefer will be played by Anya Chalotra (The series and the infernal, Wanderlust). At the helm of the magic academy Aretuza there is Tissaia (MyAnna Buring – Ripper Street, Kill List) and Yennefer is flanked by the other young wizards Fringilla (Mimi Ndiweni – Black Earth Rising), Sabrina (Therica Wilson-Read – Profile). The cast adds Millie Brady (The Last Kingdom, Teen Spirit) in the role of princess Renfri.
