Henry Cavill as a Geralt of Rivia
The show is based on a bestselling fantasy novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski, and takes place in a land known as The Continent where humans, elves, witches, gnomes and monsters battle to survive.
Henry Cavill stars as a Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. When destiny hurtles Geralt toward a powerful witch and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the continent together. Alongside Cavill we find Freya Allan as Ciri and Anya Chalotra as Yennefer.
Nothing can substitute the colossal Game of Thrones, but we can feel comfortable in Henry Cavill’s harms anyway.

Katherine Langford as Nimue
In the 10-episode series Katherine Langford (famous for her leading role in the teenage drama 13 Reasons Why) plays the main female character: Nimue, the Lady of the Lake. She stars next to Devon Terrell (Barry), Gustaf Skarsgård (Vikings) and Daniel Sharman (Medici: The Magnificent).
One of the key elements of Arthurian mythology is that King Arthur wields a magic sword called Excalibur. Sometimes he pulls it out of a stone, but most of the time Excalibur is given to him by a woman known as the Lady of the Lake, or Nimue.
Netflix‘s fantasy series Cursed, changes up the dynamics of the myth, presenting Nimue as a symbol of courage and rebellion.
