After the great success that was the first season of the series of The Witcher, Netflix announced that it was working on more projects in the franchise. Among them is a new live-action series that would serve as a prequel, whose preparations were progressing favorably. The bad news is that today it was announced that the production lost a leading actress.
A few weeks ago we informed you that the renowned British actress Jodie Turner-Smith would be in charge of giving life to Éile, one of the protagonists of the 6-part series that will take place 1200 years before what happens in The Witcher.

Netflix will have to find another lead actress to The Witcher: Blood Origin
However, today Netflix confirmed to Deadline that the actress will not participate in this production. Do not think that this was due to creative differences or some similar problem, but that the actress had to leave the role due to “a change in the production schedule of The Witcher: Blood Origin”.
Deadline says that the start of the new Netflix production would have been delayed a bit, which apparently conflicted with the busy actress’s schedule.
Due to the above, Netflix will have no alternative but to find another actress who plays Éile (either by making new auditions or making a decision from the previous ones), who will be a warrior with the voice of a goddess who decided to leave his clan to go on a journey like a wandering musician, but then had to swing the sword once more in search of redemption and vengeance.
