We Known Who May be the Antagonist in The Witcher Prequel

The Witcher: Blood Origin, the prequel to Netflix's The Witcher, may feature Eredin. It is even said that he will be the main antagonist of the work. It is also known which actor is to play the character.

The vision for the first season of Netflix's prequel series The Witcher: Blood Origin is slowly becoming clear. So far we knew that it will take place 1200 years before the events from the books, telling the story of the first monster hunter in history and the Conjunction of Realms, but that would be pretty much all we know for now. However, if reports from Redanian Intelligence are to be believed, we have most likely got to know the main antagonist of the work. It is supposed to be Eredin Bréacc Glas, the leader of the Wild Hunt.

Eredin is probably familiar to the players of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, as he was one of the main opponents of the game and was desperate to find Ciri. This character will also appear in the second season of Netflix's The Witcher, although he will only be featured in a small episode. What's interesting, in The Witcher: Blood Origin he is to be played by a completely different actor, Jacob Collins-Levy (while in the main show he is to be played by Sam Hazeldine).

Jacob Collins-Levy (pictured) will definitely be the youngest Eredin we've seen on screen.

We don't know why the creators decided to have two different actors in the role of Eredin. Perhaps it's a matter of beyond production itself or simply a conscious decision by the creators to mark a certain age gap between the two "versions" of Eredin.

And who is Collin-Levy? A young, really talented actor. He's best known for his role as Henry VII in the historical series titled The White Princess. He was also recently seen in a few episodes of the war series Liberator. The role of Eredin would definitely be an important moment of his career.

Production work on The Witcher: Blood Origin is expected to start in the middle of the summer and finish in November 2021. Then it will probably be time for the editing phase, and while we don't know the exact premiere date, we believe the series will debut in the first half of 2022.

His adventure with journalism began with a personal blog, the name of which is no longer worth quoting. Then he interpreted Iranian dramas and the Joker, writing for cinematography journal, which, sadly, no longer exists. His writing credentials include a degree in film studies, but his thesis was strictly devoted to video games. He has been writing for Gamepressure since March 2020, first writing a lot about movies, then in the newsroom, and eventually, he became a specialist in everything. He currently edits and writes articles and features. A long-time enthusiast of the most bizarre indie games and arthouse cinema. He idolizes surrealism and postmodernism. He appreciates the power of absurdity. Which is probably why he also tried soccer refereeing for 2 years (with so-so results). He tends to over-philosophize, so watch out.
