Born in 1983, he was 36 at the time of the show’s debut in 2019.

Yennefer’s age in the show presented a puzzling enigma. There existed a peculiar 19-year deviation between her age in the novels and the series. Anya Chalotra, who portrayed Yennefer, stood at 27 years old during the show, starting her role as Yennefer at the tender age of 23. As for Ciri, she was depicted as 16 in the show, while Freya Allan, born in 2001, is presently 22 years old. Remarkably, she embarked on her Witcher journey at just 18 when the inaugural season aired, showcasing her talent from an early age.
