Until today, our Witcher Netflix TV series: release date, Henry Cavill is Geralt and everything we know (opens in new tab) rundown was pretty wholesome, but lacking key information on the show's female cast. Now, Netflix has revealed who will play both Yennefer of Vengerberg and Ciri.
Both stars will feature alongside Henry Cavill's Geralt of Rivia, of course—news which birthed this wonderful header image (opens in new tab). In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab), showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich revealed Freya Allan (of Into The Badlands fame) as Ciri, and Anya Chalotra (of Wanderlust notoriety) as Yennefer.
We know Queen Calanthe will be played by Jodhi May (The Last of the Mohicans), whereas "fledgling sorceress" Fringilla will be played by Mimi Ndiweni (The Legend of Tarzan; Mr Selfridge).
