Netflix has found the star of its Witcher prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin in Jodie Turner-Smith. Deadline reports that Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim) will topline the series, playing Éile.

Éile is described as “an elite warrior blessed with the voice of a goddess. She has left her clan and position as Queen’s guardian to follow her heart as a nomadic musician. A grand reckoning on the continent forces her to return to the way of the blade in her quest for vengeance and redemption.”

The miniseries is described as follows:

Set in an elven world 1,200 years before the world of The Witcher, the six-part limited series will tell a story lost to time – the creation of the first prototype Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.
