Further proof that Italians have suspect taste in games.

I held hope for Katie McGrath ("Merlin") as Yennefer 'til the end, but hey...We'll see how the 9 yrs old 22 yrs old will do.

Isn't she busy at the moment being eaten by dinosaurs and fighting alongside Supergirl though ?

Reasonable choice tho.

Again, I have not played the games so have no idea what the game characters look like beyond screenshots.  But this was posted up in an article as a comparison.



Seems pretty reasonable to me.  So of course, from what I'm reading, the fandom is angrily losing its shit over the casting.

Considering they're casting Calanthe, this is also going to take place several years before the games.

Yup. People forget the game used this weird amnesia mechanic as a way to introduce you to the whole frame of the stories. Pull that back a ways and it's going to be surprising to anyone who has played the games but not read the books.

Hair needs work. The eyes obviously come later through effects/contacts. I think the grim look needs a LOT of work.

I think they might as well also get the beard on him from the beginning, even if he didn't have it in that time frame, because Cavill's chin is really distracting.

That was a look of constipation if I ever saw one.

I'm having severe difficulty telling the guys apart, let alone the girls.

I'm just old...
