The Witcher: Blood Origin, the prequel to the hit Netflix series starring Henry Cavill, already has its own elite warrior. Actress Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen and Slim) will be the protagonist, a powerful guardian who also has a unique voice.
The Last Ship and Nightflyers actress will play Éile, an elite warrior with the voice of a goddess. The protagonist left her clan and her place as the queen’s guardian to pursue her dream of becoming a minstrel.
However, things begin to happen on the Continent that force him to take up his sword again and face his destiny. According to Netflix, it is a “quest for revenge and redemption.”
British actress, Turner-Smith is also known for the Jett series. Blood Origin is set 1,200 years before the history of Geralt of Rivia. A story that seems buried in time, after a cataclysm known as the Conjunction of the Spheres, when the worlds of humans, monsters and elves became one.
Although the Conjunction of the Spheres is named in the original series and in Sapkowski’s novels, what will be seen on Blood Origin is a direct creation for Netflix, including its protagonists. It remains to be seen how this spin-off will be linked with The Witcher and Nightmare of the Wolf, a Japanese animated feature film that will also soon arrive on the platform.
