Forums - Movies Discussion - Update: Latest rumor shows casting for a white Ciri | Original: Netflix looking for non-white actress to play Ciri in the Witcher tv series

If that's true, it's going to piss off alot of witcher fans. Instead of trying to be true to the IP and tell the story the fans want, let's hijack this and tell a progressive story. This is gonna hurt netflix's reputation.



Around the Network

I'm black and love any representation I can get in the fantasy genre but can I just get an established black character instead? I would love to see an original black witcher or an original black sorceress. Hell if you want you can write them as the "odd man out" and play around with that.



So, if they're looking for any variety of non-white, it's just a token move to ensure that the character isn't white at all costs. Which in turn means that there is no current plan in place for a fleshed out backstory on why this character will have a different look than the royalty and other people she grew up around, which means that it's actually kinda bullshit. Diversity is a good thing for sure, forced diversity only for its own sake holds no value.

Many would say that the characters ethnicity doesn't matter, which could be true even in this case, but that doesn't fit with the actual, documented requirement that the actress be non-white. I'm really confused as to what the point of all this is.



I would prefer an all black cast.

Maybe have it directed by Spike Lee. They have an opportunity to get gaming fans woke.

Really!? That’s strange.
Ciri will always be the pale skinned white haired girl in my eyes.

No one will care in the greater scheme of things. 



But its nice watching people wince at the current trend of trying to make casts more diverse because decades hollywood has been white washing black, asian and poc characters even down to the constant casting of storm as a caramel skinned woman.



I wonder what sort of reaction Netflix would get if they decided to make Black panther series and cast Mark Wahlberg as Black panther.
