After teasing Ciri’s appearance in season 1 of The Witcher, Freya Allan returns to make the character a significant part of season 2 of the show, and we investigate the topic of how old Ciri is.
In addition to being supposed to be based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s Blood of Elves novel, the second season of The Witcher is also said to herald the beginning of the Time of Contempt. This chapter will begin up immediately after the Battle of Sodden and will see Geralt transport Ciri back to Kaer Morhen in order to keep her safe and teach her.
It should be noted that the Netflix series is a straight adaptation of Sapkowski’s book series. The material has also been converted into a successful video game series by CD Projekt Red – of which Henry Cavill is a big fan – as well.
WHO IS CIRI?
In the source material for The Witcher, Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon (Ciri) is recognized as the lone princess of Cintra and is referred to as such. She is the daughter of Pavetta and Emhyr var Emreis, and the granddaughter of Queen Calanthe, who is her great-grandmother.
Ciri’s father was cursed when Geralt met him before Ciri was born, and in exchange for saving the father, the Witcher was granted the ability to invoke the Law of Surprise on his behalf. Ciri’s father was unaware that Pavetta was expecting a child, and as a result, Ciri ended up becoming Geralt’s ward.
HOW OLD IS CIRI IN THE WITCHER SEASON 2?
Ciri is 11 years old at the fall of Cintra, and she first encounters Geralt when she is around 12 years old, according to the source material.
However, in the live-action series, the showrunner opted to showcase an older version of Ciri, as child labor laws would not allow a younger actor to shoot a fair amount of scenes during unsociable hours – explained by Lauren S. Hissrich in a Reddit post.
Taking into consideration that Ciri was supposed to be 13 or 14 at the conclusion of season 1, this suggests that Ciri will be in her mid- to late teens throughout the live-action series. Ciri’s performer, Freya Allan, is a bit older than the rest of the cast, having turned 20 earlier this year.
HOW OLD IS GERALT IN SEASON 2?
Hissrich revealed in an interview with SciFi Now that Geralt is “almost 100 years old” when the series begins, according to Hissrich. Taking into consideration that season 1 started around the year 1210 and ended around the year 1263, as well as the time lapse between seasons, we may estimate that Geralt is between 150 and 160 at the start of season 2.
Although the monster hunter ages slowly as a result of his mutations, he seems to be far older in the live-action series than he does in the novels. Geralt had reached the age of 80-85 by the time the book series comes to a close. Jo Craig can be reached at email@example.com.
