The Best Characters From Netflix's 'The Witcher'
Critics be cursed - Netflix's The Witcher is one of the most popular TV shows in recent memory. There are other shows like The Witcher, but this one has stood out. Based on the acclaimed novels, which, in turn, spawned a dedicated series of games, The Witcher takes place in a distant fantasy world where monsters run rampant and magic reigns supreme. Henry Cavill stars as Geralt of Rivia, a famous monster-hunter-for-hire who travels the continent taking on odd jobs in order to rid the world of (mostly) nefarious creatures. Sometimes his contracts specify humans, sometimes they specify monsters - fortunately for Geralt, he has two types of swords.
Who's your favorite character from the series, and how do they compete with the books...or the games? Sure, Henry Cavill's received hefty praise for his portrayal as Geralt, but the rest of the cast is just as amazing.
The list features all the main characters from the series as well as the names of the actor or actress who played them. Vote up the best characters from The Witcher to see who really stole the show.
