Michelle Yeoh is the latest actor to star in Netflix's upcoming Witcher prequel, The Witcher: Blood Origin.
Yeoh takes on the role of Scian, described as "the last of his nomadic sword elf tribe," who is "an artist with the blade, in a deadly quest that will change the continent's fate." He joins Laurence O & # 39; Fuarain, who plays a warrior named Fjall. Jodie Turner-Smith was originally chosen as the main character in Blood Origin, but left the series due to schedule conflicts.
It should be the perfect fit for Yeoh, who has established herself as a pretty badass actress over the years, from literally jumping a motorcycle to a moving train in Police Story 3: Super Cop to her role in Tiger crouched, hidden dragon winning a coup of nominations.

The Witcher: Blood Origin was announced last year and is expected to be a six-part show that takes place 1,200 years before the Henry Cavill series. This is before the Conjunction of the Spheres, the event that crushed all monsters, men and other creatures in one dimension. The series will follow the events leading up to the Conjunction, as well as the creation of the first Witcher.
Nor is it the only piece of Witcher-based entertainment that Netflix has programmed. Season 2 of The Witcher finished filming in late April, and hopefully we'll see the series released before the end of 2021. There's also an anime adaptation of the plays called Nightmare of the Wolf. Not much is known about this yet, apart from a terrifying logo that was revealed in late 2020.
