As part of the ongoing promotion of Netflix's The Witcher Season 2 since before it was released on December 17th, the streaming platform has today specifically highlighted the introduction of Kim Bodnia as the live-action Vesemir in the series. A new video features Henry Cavill (Geralt of Rivia) and Freya Allan (Ciri) as well as Bodnia himself talking all about the character and how he comes to fit into the series' world.
"We meet Vesemir in a state where Kaer Morhen, a big part of it is destroyed," Bodnia says in the video, which you can check out below. "We can't make more witchers. The future is not looking good. We've... the witchers just lost a lot of sons. One day, Geralt comes home. Geralt is a special witcher. We have to believe him. We have to support him. And it seems that there is a deeper meaning for Ciri to be here."
