The creators of The Witcher series based on the cycle of works and video games intend to make significant changes to the image of Ciri, one of the key heroines of the epic.
As reported with reference to the casting newsletter edition of the Comic Book, this role will be able to apply for "an actress aged 15-16, black, Asian, or representative of other national minorities." Note that in the literary source and games, Ciri is white.
Recall that earlier Henry Cavill, who played Superman in the movies that was part of the DC cinematic universe, was chosen as the leading actor. The series will consist of eight one-hour episodes. Lauren Schmidt was appointed producer and showrunner of the project, Alik Sakharov was appointed director of four episodes of the show, including the first.
Recall that the protagonist of the Witcher series, created by the Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, is a mutated monster hunter Geralt. His main activity is the destruction of monsters dangerous to people. Based on literary works by the Polish studio CD Projekt Red, the popular series of video games with the same name "The Witcher" was created. The first one was released in 2007 and was a great success.
