HERE'S YOUR FIRST LOOK AT HENRY CAVILL IN THE WITCHER NETFLIX SERIES, PLUS NEW CASTING REVEALED

It looks like we're getting a younger Geralt.

Netflix has given us our first look at The Witcher series' star, Henry Cavill in costume as Geralt of Rivia to celebrate the show beginning formal production.

In a clip shared on Cavill's Instagram page and the Netflix Twitter account, we see the actor in full costume and makeup, with the long silver hair Geralt also sports in CD Projekt Red's video game trilogy. We don't, however, see his prominent scars, or the beard he sported for much of The Witcher 3. Cavill is silent during the clip, but takes a swig from a flask to show that he's definitely in character.

A full list of newly-revealed cast members is below:

  • Anna Shaffer - Triss
  • Rebecca Benson - Marilka
  • Shane Attwooll - Nohorn
  • Luke Neal - Vyr
  • Matthew Neal - Nimir
  • Tobi Bamtefa - Danek
  • Sonny Serkis - Martin
  • Roderick Hill - Fletcher
  • Inge Beckmann - Aridea
  • Charlotte O’Leary - Tiffania
  • Natasha Culzac - Toruviel
  • Amit Shah - Torque
  • Tom Canton - Filavandrel
  • Eamon Farren - Cahir
  • Joey Batey - Jaskier
  • Lars Mikkelsen - Stregobor
  • Royce Pierreson - Istredd
  • Maciej Musial - Sir Lazlo
  • Wilson Radjou-Pujalte - Dara

 

Some of the notable stars cast in the show include Twin Peaks' Eamon Farren as Cahir and House of Cards' Lars Mikkelsen as Stregobor. Anna Shaffer, who played Romilda Vane in the Harry Potter film series, will assume the role of Triss. Netflix previously announced two of the show’s female leads: Freya Allan as Ciri and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer.

No release date has been given for The Witcher series, aside from Netflix's vague 2019 window, but the script for the show is complete. Showrunner Laura Schmidt Hissrich previously said that it could be 2020 before the eight-episode project is ready.
