I think any leak at all was going to attract this type of attention, and with any attention comes backlash to that attention. Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.

Per THR, Freya Allan will fill the role of Ciri, the young princess of Cintra, while Anya Chalotra will play Yennefer, a powerful sorceress and Geralt Rivia's main love interest.

Allan's credits include Into the Badlands and the upcoming War of the Worlds miniseries, while Chalotra previously worked on The ABC Murders and Wanderlust.

That's the big three.

Jodhi May (Game of Thrones, Genius) has been cast as Cintra's Queen Calanthe, the grandmother of Ciri. Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson plays Eist Tuirseach - he plays a role in the books, but those who haven't read them might be familiar with his nephew Crach an Craite. From the beginning, they have only looked to cast the best actors for a given role.

Netflix has revealed the rest of the cast members who will be joining Henry Cavill in their upcoming fantasy series, The Witcher. Adam Levy (Knightfall, Snatch) has been cast as the druid Mousesack (Ermion to fans of the games). The latter two appeared in Witcher games before - Fringilla in The Witcher 3 and Sabrina in Gwent. Canonically, Ciri is white, and the thought of an actress of color bringing her to life in a live-action series ruffled many fans' feathers.

Last but not least, the casting of Millie Brady as Renfri indicates that we'll see how Geralt gets the moniker "The Butcher of Blaviken" as Renfri is a key figure in that short story. Anyways, I'm excited about this cast.

Set as directors of the series are Alik Sakharov (House of Cards, Game of Thrones), who will helm a total of four episodes including the first one and also will serve as executive producer, and Alex Garcia Lopez (Marvel's Luke Cage, Fear the Walking Dead) and Charlotte Brändström (Outlander, Counterpart), who will direct two episodes each.

"I am sorta put off by how young Yennefer is gonna be", another fan tweeted. Are you going to watch the show when it airs?
