Jodie Turner-Smith Will Not Be In 'The Witcher: Blood Origin' Because Of This

Jodie Turner-Smith will not be part of The Witcher prequel series after all.

The 32-year-old actress has had to depart the series due to a scheduling conflict, Deadline reports.

“Due to a change in the production schedule for The Witcher: Blood Origin limited series, unfortunately Jodie Turner-Smith will no longer be able to continue on in the role of Éile,” a Netflix spokesperson shared about the situation.

Eile is described as “an elite warrior blessed with the voice of a goddess, who 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 Wither: Blood Origin will be set in an elven world 1,200 years before the world of The Witcher, and will focus on 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.
