A recently surfaced casting ad has revealed that Netflix's adaptation of The Witcher game series is looking to make some major changes to, fan-favourite character, Ciri.

According to a newly released National Youth Theatre listing, the Netflix series is after a "16 or 15 year old BAME (black, Asian, minority ethnic) girl who can play down to 13/14."

In Andrzej Sapkowski's book series', of which the games are based on, as well as the games themselves, Ciri is depicted as white. And on top of that, at the time of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, her age is roughly 22.

As the listing continues is goes into more depth, defining the character as "resilient, relentless, brazen, and growing". Below you can see the full listing - which provides even more background information on the character:


CIRI can often be found rough-housing with the Palace hands instead of sitting in finery at the knee of the QUEEN CALANTHE, her grandmother. That is, until Cintra is massacred by the Nilfgaardians and CIRI is orphaned, left to traverse THE CONTINENT, alone. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s a direct descendent of LARA DORREN, an Elven Mage – which is why everyone in our series is after her. We follow CIRI as she evades her captors, and in the meantime, discovers her magical talents, her dark side, and the role she is to play in the coming apocalypse. We are looking for an extraordinary young talent to lead this series. She should be brave hearted and MUST have something truly special about her.

What do you think of the Ciri listing? What are you opinions on the changes they're making to the fan-favourite character?
