Michelle Yeoh Has Been Cast in “The Witcher: Blood Origin”

Are you a fan of ‘The Witcher’ series? In case you didn’t know yet, a six-part live-action limited prequel series called ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ is currently in the works – and Michelle Yeoh has been confirmed as one of the cast members! (We love her!)

Michelle Yeoh will be playing the role of Scían in the prequel series, the very last of her nomadic tribe of sword-elves. No one can come close to her artistry with the blade, and no one carries as much loss within their heart. When a chance presents itself to retrieve a stolen sacred sword, taken from her fallen tribe by nefarious means, she launches herself into a deadly quest that will change the outcome of the Continent.

Set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of ‘The Witcher’ as we know it, ‘Blood Origin’ will tell a story lost to time – the creation of the first prototype 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.

Another confirmed cast member is Laurence O’Fuarain, who will star in the role of Fjall. Born into a clan of warriors sworn to protect a King, Fjall carries a deep scar within, the death of a loved one who fell in battle trying to save him. A scar that won’t let him settle, or make peace with himself or the world around him. In his quest for redemption, Fjall will find himself fighting beside the most unlikely of allies as he carves a path of vengeance across a continent in turmoil.
