Star wars’ legendary actress will play the role of Elven healer, astrologer, and oracle. She has a gift for prophecies and predicted several events correctly as the Northern wars and plagues of 1268, 1272, and 1294. Her most common prophecy is Aen Ithlinnespeath: The time of white frost.

Ann Firbank is known for her role in less Misérables, Elizabeth I., Kingdom, and the movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Joseph Payne As Jarre

Joseph is a young actor who is also seen in the HBO thriller The Third Day. Jarre is a 16-year-old scribe and a former soldier who is a scribe at the Temple of Melitele in Ellender. He was secretly in love with Ciri. This timid boy was heroic, as he will later prove in the books.

Ed Birch As King Vizimir

The Last Kingdom’s fame will be seen playing the role of Vizier. He was also seen in Wonder Woman 1984 and, The Singapore Grip,

Vizier was the king of Redania, one of the four kingdoms of the North. Redania was home to Jaskier, Dijkstra and Phillipa Eilhart. Dijkstra and Phillipa are arguably the real power behind the throne of Rania.

Ania Marson As Voleth Meir

The 71-year-old Marson has a comprehensive background in showbiz spanning a career of over six decades. In recent years, she has been cast in numerous horror genre movies, including “Howl” and “Don’t Knock Twice.”

Violet Meir, also known as the deathless mother, is a mysterious character who can play a pivotal role in Ciri’s journey in season 2. She was described in a casting breakdown as “A very old white-haired woman. A demon, who roams the land bargaining and preying on people deepest and darkest desires”.

Emily Byrt As Aylne

She is a theatre actress who trained in the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and appeared in many stage plays after 2010. A lot is unknown about the character Aylne. Still, we guess that she is a character described in a previous casting breakdown under the Code name ‘Anna’:: “A fierce sex worker, she joins a group of soldiers who she isn’t afraid to boss around.” As there are a group of sex workers back at the home of Geralt in Kaer Morhen, the best guess is she is one of them and will feature in the story as Ciri and Geralt go back there in season 2.

Since the casting of Season 2 of The Witcher is all out and the release date yet to be announced, we can wait for casting news for the prequel The Witcher: Blood origins which will be set 1200 years from the events of Geralt’s timeline.
