The Witcher Netflix Series Adds Two New Names To Their Casting List
The Witcher Netflix series is perhaps the biggest new television show that gamers are looking forward to this year. Netflix has promised an ambitious tale featuring the star power of Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia. While details about the plot are few and far between, there have been plenty of characters from the many iterations of Witcher lore over the years confirmed to be in the show’s cast. Now, thanks to some digital sleuths, more characters have been confirmed to be in the show.
Reddit user gravemaster7 recently shared their findings on the r/netflixwitcher page. After perusing through the actors’ websites, gravemaster7 discovered the casting of Gaia Mondadori as Pavetta and Lucas Englander as Chireadan. Gaia Mondadori has had an acting background mostly in theater performances, so this is her first television series role. For those unaware, Pavetta is the mother of Ciri and daughter of Queen Calanthe.
As for the other role, Chireadan is the name of an elf character that was seen in the original Witcher short story, The Last Wish. This role will be portrayed in the Netflix series by Lucas Englander, who has appeared in several Austrian television programs, and will appear in an upcoming Catherine the Great series.
It is delightful to see so much of the Witcher’s rich character library being utilized for the new show, and hopefully it follows through with just as much rich character development and bathtub scenes.
