    Yeah. So it will be done to her performance to evoke that "old person in a young body" feel.

    Still no Dandelion casting announcement, though, which is odd... (by the way, apparently he'll be called Jaskier, like in the Polish original).

    It's like a mashup of Legolas and Raiden.

    Yeah, too much like Legolas. And obvious wig is obvious. :p It should also be white, not grey, and He seems to be missing the cat’s eyes contact lenses. Hopefully it’s just a first test, not the final look...

    Edit: Also, to be absolutely true to the books, his eyebrows should be white, too - his mutation has basically turned him into an albino (he’s referred to as one in the books a few times), so any facial or body hair should be white... :-B

    More cast members announced:

    Based on the character names, looks like they’re doing Lesser Evil, The Edge of the World and Shard of Ice. But still no mention of Pavetta, Duny, Eithné, Braenn, Three Jackdaws (who was actually mentioned by Hissrich in a tweet some time ago), or any characters from The Last Wish. Hmm. Those stories are IMHO important for setting up the big plot lines. Now it could be that the cast isn't complete yet, but I can’t help but feel a bit concerned...

    One of those things. As I have never read the books or played the games, I’ll probably enjoy it more. But hopefully you get satisfaction from it.

    My gut says if there's no Duny it's definitely because they aren't done. The thought process being that he's just way too important, and that Netflix seems to love the kind of overarching structure he easily provides.

    Well...

    I would probably cast Duny and Emhyr with two different actors. There’s about 15 years between A Question of Price and Emhyr’s first appearance in the novels, and having two different actors would help preserve the reveal at the end.

    Nah I think they’ll CGI/makeup that. Or lie.

    What the actual hell is that Triss casting? I’m starting to get less and less excited about this show with every announcement.

    The Polish guy smacking her down is someone I know from a FB group.

    I actually don't mind her at all. Provided they dye her hair chestnut. You know she's not actually redhead? ;)

    It’s not the hair that bothers me (provided they don’t give her a cosplay wig like Cavill). I dunno. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

    You clearly have internet so you're not on a desert island, therefore... religious grounds?

    [face_laugh] at that Twitter post. She deserved that virtual spanking. Sheesh. I am Slavic and don’t give a crap whether the show is faithful or not. Adaptations and that. If I want sort-of authentic in my Slavic genre stuff, I’ll chill with the Volkodav movie (again).

    I guess Henry’s cat eyes will be CGI? Otherwise, fine.

    Meanwhile, I’ll try to be patient for a Dragonlance series with Ewan McGregor as Tanis Half-Elven. :p

    :rolleyes:If you actually read what I was commenting about in regard to not caring, you’d know it had nothing to do with his looks.

    Have a good day.

    In terms of physical appearance, I’m not seeing a problem here...

    upload_2018-11-2_7-17-52.jpeg

    The facial features are a strong match; a red wig and some green contacts, and we’re aces. Unless there’s some other reason you take issue with the casting....
