Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, executive producer and showrunner of The Witcher and the prequel mini-series The Witcher: Origins of Blood, spoke to Decisive about her show’s lead cast change during a press conference for the show.
While ardent The Witcher fans are upset that Liam Hemsworth has replaced Henry Cavill (in addition to complaining about the miniseries’ apparent departures from its source material), Hissrich isn’t worried about disrupting the show’s creative momentum. On the contrary, she says that she considers it a positive thing. “You know, I will say that change is also energy,” Hissrich said. “Change also causes different energies. So for us, it’s just part of the further development of this franchise.”
More open-minded fans of The Witcher might see what she means and will be looking forward to exactly what new energy this admittedly huge change will bring to the show (and even most of the more dim-witted ones probably still don’t care). check).
