Why Does Ciri Look Different in The Witcher Season 2?

The Witcher Season 2 is finally here, and it is literally the most amazing thing that has happened this year. The characters that we fell in love with 2 years ago are finally back and are looking as beautiful as ever. But there is one thing that we can’t help but notice about one character in the Netflix series; Ciri looks a little different in season 2 of The Witcher.

While Henry Cavill and Anya Chalotra look almost the same as the previous season, fans noticed substantial changes in the appearance of Ciri in season 2, but why did it happen?

Is Ciri the same actor in The Witcher Season 2?

The first answer that may come to anyone’s mind would be that maybe they recast the actress who played the role of Ciri, but is it the case with Princess Cirilla of Cintra? The answer is no. Ever since season 1 of The Witcher, Freya Allan has essayed the role of the swallow. She will play the role for a long time, as it has been really amazing to see her performance as the Lion Cub of Cintra. It almost feels as if Freya was born to play this role, just like Henry Cavill was born to play the role of Ciri’s father figure, Geralt of Rivia.

Why does Cirilla look different in Season 2?

There is no denying the fact that Ciri looks different in Season 2 of The Witcher. One simple reason for this dissimilarity in Ciri’s physical appearance in season 2 is COVID.

The first shoots for the series were scheduled for February 2020. At that time, Freya was an 18-year-old kid. However, due to the global pandemic, the shoot went on till March 2021. By that time, Freya was just 5 months away from her 20th birthday. Hence, the changes you see in her appearance are nothing but the natural growth and changes that a human body goes through.

Allan is not the first actress/actor to go through such a difficulty, and neither will she be the last. Netflix itself is not alien to this problem, as we have witnessed the cast of Stranger Things age dramatically between seasons. However, as The Witcher Season 2 is so captivating, you will look past the changes in the appearance of Ciri and be fully engrossed in the story.
