THE WITCHER Character Portraits Focus On Anya Chalotra As Yennefer And Freya Allan As Ciri

Netflix has released the first of what will presumably be a series of character portraits for The Witcher, and they focus on the show's female leads, Anya Chalotra (Yennefer) and Freya Allan (Ciri)...

On the heels of the first full trailer, Netflix has released a series of character portraits for The Witcher, and these shift the focus from the Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) to the two most important people in his life, Yennefer of Vengerberg and Princess Cirilla.

In the novels and video games upon which the series is based, Yennefer is a powerful sorceress who winds up becoming Geralt's lover - although they develop an on-again-off-again relationship as the story progresses. Ciri, meanwhile, is a fierce warrior in her own right, and an adoptive daughter of sorts to the pair.

Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski's series of fantasy novels - which have since spawned a hugely popular video game franchise - focus on monster hunters known as Witchers who develop supernatural abilities at a young age. The main character is Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), a solitary Witcher who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.

The 8-episode first season will be written by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (Daredevil, The Defenders, Umbrella Academy), who will also serve as executive producer and showrunner. Alik Sakharov (House of Cards, Game of Thrones) will helm a total of four episodes, while Alex Garcia Lopez (Luke Cage, Fear The Walking Dead) and Charlotte Brändström (Outlander, Counterpart) will direct two installments each.
