I'm fine with the casting. He's a fan and name recognition might give this series some legs, instead of possibly being a one-and-done

I think it's good and it's a bonus that he is a big fan of the game.

I wasn’t blown away by the latest mission impossible but it did make it incredibly apparent what an amazing specimen mid-30s Henry Cavill is

He had a good balance of derring do hard man and sexy smoulder too


I support this decision

Here’s a sick bonus don don for my geeks


late 16th century: from late Middle English dorryng do ‘daring to do’, used by Chaucer, and, in a passage by Lydgate based on Chaucer's work, misprinted in 16th-century editions as derrynge do ; this was misinterpreted by Spenser to mean ‘manhood, chivalry’, and subsequently taken up and popularized by Sir Walter Scott.

I've read in another interview that he was on his second play through of the game.

Netflix put out a casting call saying they were looking for a woman of color to play her.

The backlash got so bad that the showrunner is taking a break from twitter.

I meant more backlash discussion I suppose, not actual backlash.

It would be awkward to have Ciri be non-white though.

Yeah, a teenager, which makes sense considering how young Henry Cavill is as Geralt.

I disagree that it would necessarily be "awkward" to cast Ciri a little differently. I'm curious what you meant by that.

I haven't read the books, so maybe her skin color is really important to that story. that would be disconcerting as fuck if true. but Sapkowski being creative consultant on the show tells me it probably is not.

The dorks throwing a fit over PoC Ciri has finally convinced me how toxic nostalgia can be.
