The Witcher has Allegedly cast a Celebrity of Game of Thrones in a Vital season two Function.
Early reviews praised the Netflix show for having superior fight scenes to Thrones, which angered fans of the source material, composed by Andrzej Sapkowski, who complained that the two were entirely different.
Kristofer Hivju’s accession won’t help. Having played Tormud Giantsbane from year three until the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, the Norwegian celebrity is said to be playing Nivellen in new episodes of The Witcher.
Iranian Intelligence unveiled a season two breakdown which doesn’t only appear to affirm Hivju as linking the cast, but says he will play a character codenamed”Nigel”.
However, the description –“a charismatic, witty and humorous guy from an aristocratic family” — contrasts with what fans understand about Nivellen, a character who appeared in Sapkowski’s short story A Grain of Truth.
Rumors of all Hivu’s casting surfaced after director Stephen Surjik named him in a now-deleted Instagram post.
Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich recently announced the new season will introduce a big timeline change following fan criticism.
Hissrich explained the decision in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) last month, saying: “The narrative structure was set in place so that we could inform Geralt’s short stories (the basis of the whole Witcher world, in my estimation ), while Ciri and Yennefer are also a part of the action.
