Geralt’s Voice Actor Doug Cockle Not Involved in Witcher Netflix Series, But Would Like to Be
Doug Cockle has confirmed via Twitter that he has zero involvement in the newly announced Witcher Netflix TV series.
Yesterday it was revealed that Netflix is working on a television adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy franchise The Witcher, which has already begun production.
Since then, developers of the very popular game series attached to the series of eight novels and story collections, CD Projekt Red, announced it will have no involvement in the project.
Now, voice actor Doug Cockle, who voices Geralt in the games in the English language with his iconic take on the monster slayer, has announced that he also has no involvement in the Netflix series; however, he would like to.
Via twitter, Cockle tweeted out a bit of a rallying cry, encouraging anyone who wants him involved in the project to let Netflix know.

With Cockle not involved this puts to bed the hopes of quite a few who were hoping the TV series would be done in CGI rather than with actors/actresses, and thus allow all of the voice actors from the games to reclaim their roles which they’ve been a big part in defining. Alas — I like the idea of that as well — but it doesn’t appear to be happening. Luckily, I personally spent hours yesterday casting the series for Netflix, and found some great options to play Geralt and co.
