Netflix’s “The Witcher: Blood Origin,” the upcoming six-part prequel series spin-off to its lavish fantasy series “The Witcher,” has filled out its cast.
Set in an elven world 1200 years ago, Blood Origin will chart the creation of the first prototype Witcher and the events that lead to the pivotal ‘Conjunction of the Spheres’ when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.
As we already know, Laurence O’Fuarain, Sophia Brown and Michelle Yeoh will lead the show. They will be joined by the following:
Mirren Mack will play Merwyn
Lenny Henry will play Balor
Jacob Collins will play Eredin
Lizzie Annis will play Zacaré
Huw Novelli will play Callan ‘Brother Death’
Francesca Mills will play Meldof
Amy Murray will play Fenrik
Nathaniel Curtis will play Brían
Zach Wyatt will play Syndril
Dylan Moran will play Uthrok One-Nut
Filming on the series is currently underway in the U.K. Sarah O’Gorman (“Cursed”) and Vicky Jewson (“Close”) are splitting directing duties in equal halves while Declan de Barra will act as executive producer and showrunner.
The news comes ahead of the animated feature “The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf” launching on August 23rd, and the second season of “The Witcher” on December 17th.
