Jodie Turner-Smith Joins the Cast of The Witcher: Blood Origin

While we wait with bated breath for more news about both The Witcher and its prequel series, Blood Origin, we just received word about a new cast member joining the fray. Jodie Turner-Smith, known for notable roles in Queen & Slim, The Neon Demon, and Amazon’s upcoming Without Remorse, will join The Witcher: Blood Origin as the role of Éile. 

Éile will be an elite warrior blessed with the voice of a goddess, who has left her clan and position as Queen's guardian to follow her heart 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. We love this interesting take on a bard-type character, and we certainly welcome more musically-inclined roles after the much-loved Jaskier. Given Turner-Smith’s demand and her powerful talent, we are very excited to see her take on this new role.

The Witcher: Blood Origin will be a six-part, live-action limited series, and a prequel to the hit Netflix series The Witcher. The series will be set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of The Witcher, and 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.

Declan de Barra will act as Executive Producer and Showrunner and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich will act as Executive Producer for the series. In addition, Andrzej Sapkowski will serve as creative consultant, and Jason Brown and Sean Daniel from Hivemind, and Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko from Platige Films will all serve as executive producers.
