‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ Prequel Series Casts Jodie Turner-Smith https://t.co/dMszdBzMpN— Variety (@Variety) January 25, 2021
She has been cast in a lead role in Netflix’s prequel series “The Witcher: Blood Origin.”
The six-episode limited series will take place 1,200 years before the events of “The Witcher,”
It will show the backstory of the elven civilization before its fall.
“Blood Origin” will tell a story lost to time — the creation of the very first Witcher and the events that lead to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men and elves merged to become one.
Turner-Smith will play a warrior named Éile, who was blessed with the voice of a goddess and leaves her clan and role as the queen’s guardian to follow her heart and embark on a journey as a nomadic musician. A grand reckoning on the continent forces her to return to the way of the blade in her quest for vengeance and redemption.
