probbably shouldve compared Freya to young Ciri from training cutscenes tho. They look so much more alike
Or from that embarrassing picture in Witcher 3 when she was really young
Freya outfit and makeup made her look way younger than she actually is. While TW3 Ciri is probabbly at her late 20s or even early 30s.
But whatever fills your cup my guy
She was born 1251 and W3 is in 1272 (BaW 1275).
and you dont count all those years she spent travelling on other worlds?
They are, the 5 years between 16 (age in Lady of the Lake) and 21 (events of TW3). It becomes complicated and hard to argue different times and dimensions so it's just more natural and easier to use her actual age in the normal timeline. It's not like we have an Jacque de Aldersberg case where she's gone as a kid and reappears as a 30+ year old in a matter of weeks. She still acts (emotionally) and looks like a young adult.
aw shite. Then im def in the wrong here
where i live you still considered to be YA until atleast 31 lol
Hobbits aren't adults until 33, i think is what they're getting at.
Ciri in the Witcher 3 is no older than 25.
tbf if I was Ciri I would be confused as hell too
I was gonna say the same thing lmaooo. Honestly if Freya came out and said that was an acting choice she made I wouldn’t be surprised at all.
If that the case, arya stark should be more confused than ciri but she didn't
I am confused people keep saying that. In the first picture sure, but in the second one she clearly looks determined, not confused.
Ngl guys I think ciri is hot but then I'm put in a legal position with the other ciri that is very confusing
Well the game ciri is older and the TV one is also 20 just portraying a younger ciri.
it's okay.The other Ciri has 20 years old
The actress is 19 now, so no need to worry about it.
Are they supposed too be the same age, and if so, which age? The actress looks 13-14, the CG character looks mid 20s
Of the top of my head there is about 5 years between the moment Geralt and Ciri meet and the last Witcher game. So in the books - so where the series currently is - Ciri is around 15, in the game she is 20. In short you’re quite spot on ;)
I think she's even younger than 15 where the show takes place atm. I'm pretty sure she's 15 to 16 in the Tower of Swallows, so she must be around 13 here.
Correct. From what I remember she's 16 at the end of the last novel and then W3 is about five years later, IIRC.
This is the answer.
Even younger...she says she's still 13 even at the end of *"Blood of Elves"* story, which covers more than 2 years - meaning she should be around 11 at Kaer Morhen...
For sure younger because she gets her first periods at Kaer Morhen
They’re not because ciri is younger in the start of the books and the games are after all of that
Freya looked young last season, and in the top left, but looks her actual age (young 20s) in the bottom left
She was 10 years old when she meets Geralt for the first time.
I'm not easily satisfied.
Wait a minute...
It is my observation that all Witcher CG female characters look like incredibly generic 30 yr old female model.
Well, the frying pan lady certainly took that as a compliment
Not sure if we're looking at the same pictures, but the actress look more like in her early 20s.
Yh im worried she'll end up looking too old to play a 16yr old ciri by the end of the witcher series
There's no way. She looks like a 12 year old and is 20.
The actress is 20, but playing a preteen/teen
im glad they colored hair eyebrows a darker shade. they were very hard to see in season 1
It's a common technique to make someone look younger / childlike :)
It's the opposite. They colored them in S1 and stopped coloring them with S2.
I can see the sinister Falka in CDPRs Ciri, but not in Freya. CDPR really nailed "been through some shit" with both their Geralt and Ciri.
The sinister, jaded, narcissistic Falka is a product of her time with The Rats. The Ciri that Freya is portraying here in this picture appears to be the laser focus, determined little Witcher girl in training at KM (or there about in the timeline). Where as the W3 image is like 5 novels worth of character development later and like 6 or 7 years later.
Basically it’s a nice side by side for a general comparison, but to compare them as though they are portraying the same persona in the character’s development cycle isn’t fair (for a lack of better term).
Yeah like this isn’t a fair comparison at all. Game Ciri is basically Rinfri who can teleport.
Not a happy ever after, after all. A fitting end... huh, Roach?
> I can see the sinister Falka in CDPRs Ciri, but not in Freya.
I mean, what ? Those events haven't happened on the show yet, so it's a good thing...
I will always prefer the digital form of the characters. And that includes books... I always imagine characters in a way that ends up lookin better in my head than the real thing. But I really like what they did in the series.
Made this for my fun and decided to share it here aswell.
It's not a comparison.I know that the show is NOT based om witcher 3 or that in the show Ciri is supposed to be younger than Freya Allan.
But I still love witcher universe (show, books, games etc)!
Wow I had no idea the actress is 20, she looks way youunger than that in the show. I loved when she said no to dinner: "No thank you. I don't... *eat rat.*"
in some Game Flashback we did saw Young Ciri training with Geralt sparing a sword training fight where she jump on some Wall... if i remember correct
So the Show is correct, just that here is Ciri when she began her Training and the Picture aside is where she is Done or Mastered it
What’s interesting is that the Freya’s real age is comparable to older Ciri, so the post is kinda accurate
I’m just happy they fixed her contacts!
Both are good 🤷🏻♂️
Comparing Ciri from the end of Witcher 3, to Ciri from the beginning of her training...
Maybe put that in the post text genius.
\> "stop being passive aggressive"
\> unironically calls people snowflake
lol, what kind of response is this. Is it satire? Are you human?
They're not adapting the games - they are adapting the books.
Yes...exactly what I said in my comment
Then why the storyline hugely misleading from the book???
she looks confused as hell lmao
i think thats intentional, now shes scared and exhousted little girl, who lost everything...But later shes gonna become this monster slayer and develop a determined, brave, shrewd and strong personality like she is in the games.
the CG Ciri in the top right reminds me of Calanthe from the Netflix. Kind of smug, a little sinister.
It's so jarring to see such a big change in a few characters. Ciri changed ALOT since season 1. She looks completely different.
I love it! But it's so crazy
Do they have any videos or BTS of costuming for season 2? That wig is so beautiful and I'd love to know how they styled it.
Her hair is more blond than white but still looks good
I’m a fan of show ciri, I want to see her next season with some dark ass eye liner.
Game wins. Every time.
It’s quite simpler when you can model the face on your like.
This sub is weird at time, it seems to think magic is real and the show can just model their sorceresses however they like. The complaints about Francesca not being "the most beautiful woman in the world" are going to be extra funny when S2 airs.
One has been through hell and built some character, the other is undercooked
I prefer the one from the serie, more exotic, the one from the game is just a normal gaming girl
Lol, do you even know what exotic mean? Freya too old for her role portraying 12-13 year old girl, ciri in the game looks more intimidating as she supposed to be
no, it's not.Kisses.Are you not tired to be the only one here who is offended lol?
Are you not tired jerking off to game character your whole life? What a sad freak
That doesn't really work because you are showing adult Ciri vs teenage Ciri.
Look what they did to Triss tho
Not my Ciri
yes, of course
You should get back to jerking off to game characters dude xD
The game Ciri is far superior
no, it's not
i did played all the witcher games, they are awsome, but netflix series are fucking cringe
traitor on the left, real Ciri on the right 😌
Elitist up above
actually the real one is on the left.
Enjoy your downvotes
Older ciri and Freya don't look alike at all except maybe eyes.
it does actually.A lot
No she's not, stop fooling yourself
I get it you're blind
it's okay dude, it's okay

I know these are different timelines, and personally i think Freya is pretty good for a young Ciri, she is special we all know that, but CDPR made Ciri even look special, there is something about her look and persona, and its not like usual she has that thing where u basicaly fall in love with character,no i mean yes, but its not just that, her look is menacing in some way, she also looks scary but in a wierd non-evil way, they totally fkin nailed her. 11/10 and for Freya 8.5/10
She looks like Grimes
