It was a display of camaraderie that sparkled brighter than stage lights.

Simson sang praises for the stage version of the Oscar-nominated love story Cold War. She hailed it as “one of the best plays”.

Netflix tantalized The Witcher enthusiasts by unveiling a sneak peek of the forthcoming animated feature, The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep. It is slated for a late 2024 release. Crafted from Andrzej Sapkowski’s tale A Little Sacrifice, the film delves into Geralt of Rivia’s inquiry into assaults within a seaside settlement, entwined with mounting tensions between local humans and mystical merfolk dwelling beneath the waves.

Nestled between the events of the live-action series’ first season, the animated Geralt resembled the original actor Cavill more than the video game rendition. Anya Chalotra and Joey Batey returned to voice Yennefer of Vengerberg and Jaskier in this animated tale. Meanwhile, the voice of Geralt was taken up by Doug Cockle, renowned for his portrayal in the Witcher games. For those who cherished Cavill’s embodiment of Geralt, this animated escapade might serve as a bittersweet farewell.
