Michelle Yeoh has recently been cast in the upcoming prequel of “The Witcher”.
The Malaysian actress is set to play the character Scían in “The Witcher: Blood Origin”, a story that is set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of “The Witcher”. It will tell a story lost to time – the creation of the first prototype Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.
Yeoh’s character is described as the very last of her nomadic tribe of sword-elves in the series. No one can come close to her artistry with the blade, and no one carries as much loss within their heart. When a chance presents itself to retrieve a stolen sacred sword, taken from her fallen tribe by nefarious means, she launches herself into a deadly quest that will change the outcome of the Continent.
Yeo will be joining Laurence O’Fuarain, who will star as a warrior character named Fjall.
The upcoming Netflix show will be a six-part limited series, with Declan de Barra as executive producer and showrunner.
On the other hand, Yeoh will be seen next in Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”, and “Gunpower Milkshake” among several other projects.
