Today is a good day for fans of the Netflix hit series The Witcher. Some notable characters have been announced as well as the actors portraying them. Several known actors, as well as upcoming talent, have been picked to portray new faces to the Continent. Check out the details for the new characters below.
Gallatin – Robbie Amell (Upload, Code 8, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City)
Character description: A born fighter, Gallatin leads an army of guerrilla Scoia’tael fighting on behalf of Nilfgaard. Unafraid to speak his truth, Gallatin’s loyalty to his people ultimately leads him on a collision course with Francesca over power.
Milva – Meng’er Zhang (Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings)
Character description: A human adopted by the dryads of Brokilon Forest, Milva is a fierce and talented huntress. Exact archery skills coupled with a stone-cold aptitude for survival make her a formidable adversary in the unforgiving Continent.
Prince Radovid – Hugh Skinner (Mamma Mia Here We Go Again!, Falling For Figaro, Fleabag)
Character description: Radovid is a royal playboy and younger brother to King Vizimir. In Season 3 Radovid finds himself suddenly a man on the inside of the Redanian Intelligence. With his good looks and often drunken charm, Radovid surprises with how incisive he can be in matters of politics, but it’s all games until someone gets hurt.
Mistle – Christelle Elwin (Half Bad, Bloods)
Character description: Mistle is a member of The Rat. They are a gang of misfit teenagers who steal from the rich and give to themselves. And sometimes if they’re generous, the poor. She is street hard, suspicious of everyone and out for revenge. That is until a chance meeting that will change everything for her.
The new characters are an interesting bunch. I have to say it’s surprising to see Robbie Amell. I wouldn’t have imagined him as part of the world of The Witcher. Also from the world of the fans, several of these characters are exciting to see enter the series. I have personally heard Mistle is a character that divides a lot of fans so that will definitely add an interesting twist on the established world of The Witcher so far.
