Jodie Turner-Smith will be the starring lead in the upcoming Netflix prequel series, The Witcher: Blood Origin! The Witcher: Blood Origin will be a six-part limited series.
From Deadline, here is what they said regarding the new series and who Jodie Turner-Smith play:
Set in an elven world 1,200 years before the world of The Witcher, 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.
Turner-Smith will play Éile, 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.
The story sounds good. Jodie Turner-Smith is an amazing actor, especially in Queen & Slim, so she’s going to knock this role out of the park. I can’t wait to see what she’ll look like and what we can expect for the new series.
