Netflix unveiled a full-length trailer for her upcoming fantasy series The Witcher at the San Diego Comic Con, and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said that 207 different actors were considered starring actress, Geralt of Rivia, before they finally settled on Man of Steel star Henry Cavill.
However, Hissrich added that they, while many other actors were in the frame, at one time or another, Cavill always thought of himself as Geralt, saying that he had made such a strong first impression that his voice remained with her as she shared her vision for the series and designed the story arc of the character. Unfortunately, Hiss gave I do not know who this other 207 actor was.
Cavill himself has admitted that he was determined to be the fan of the fantasy books and video games on which the series was based to land the gig. "When I heard that they make The Witcher I was obviously incredibly excited and annoyed the living daylights of my agents," said Cavill Entertainment Tonight . "I called them every day and said, 'People, now, are you meeting yourself? How about now?' And finally they said," Look, they put on a showrunner, and we have Calling them, they said, "Look, we're not even close to this process." Pushing, and finally, I think Netflix just got tired.
The first season of The Witcher adapted from the popular books of Andrzej Zapkowski, will not represent a villain in the tradition sense, said Hissrich.While the title-witch is a monster hunter, the trailer suggests -Slogan states that "the worst monsters are the ones we create."
"There is not really a villain," Hissrich said. "One of the things we like to explore is all the grayscale in the books. The characters you are looking for in the beginning may not be the characters you are looking for in the end. And characters who hate you and seem to be absolutely evil are motivated by something that is truly associative, human, and emotional. I've found that it's written and then observed that your loyalty changes a lot. They are constantly trying to act as characters and to think about what they would do. I think you will have a lot of empathy for characters you did not expect. "
