British actress Jodie-Turner Smith (The Last Ship, Jett, Queen & Slim, True Blood, Nightflyers, After Yang, Without Remorse) will have the honor of playing Éile, a fierce warrior with the voice of a goddess, in The Witcher : Blood Origin (six live action episodes, no air date yet). She gave up her clan and her status as the Queen’s Guardian to listen to the surges of her heart and become a traveling musician. But when the moment comes to render accounts on the Continent, it must take up arms again and continue its quest for revenge and redemption . The story of the mini series prequel will unfold 1200 years before that of Geralt of Rivia, the most gifted witcher of his generation.

For the record, Declan de Barra will be the showrunner and executive producer alongside Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, the creator of the main series The Witcher on the American platform Netflix . Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the novels, is artistic consultant for the series. Finally, Jason Brown and Sean Daniel of Hivemind as well as Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko of Platige Films also provide executive production. Covid-19 or not, filming for The Witcher: Blood Origin has yet to begin.
