All the main actors returned for the highly anticipated second season of The Witcher, including Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan, who play Yennefer and Ciri, respectively. Since it’s been so long since we last saw the women of the world, some may have forgotten that the two never shared the screen in season 1.
Thankfully, that’s not the case in Season 2, as Ciri and Yennefer’s paths eventually collide. Not only that, but Episode 6 sees the women and Geralt (Henry Cavill) coming together, the first time the three lead actors are all in the same place.
Anya Chalotra and Freya Allan filmed together for the first time, but both had previously filmed with Henry Cavill in Season 1. It was an especially exciting time for the women, and their experience together in front of the camera seems to have been a special moment. Freya Allan recently opened up about what it was like working on set with Anya Chalotra, and she’s not surprised how it all panned out.
Freya Allan used the space to talk about all things The Witcher season 2 finale, and her filming time with Anya Chalotra became a major talking point. The actress mentioned how excited she was to start filming due to her colleague’s amazing performance in Season 1.
When it comes to Anya Chalotra’s behavior on the set of The Witcher, her co-star noted that “she definitely gives a lot, which is really nice when you understand that because you have something to listen to and react to.”
“I think she works quite differently for me in terms of she really likes to figure out the scene beforehand in terms of where we’re walking and things like that, and I like the spontaneity of that. Kind of like letting them find it in the moment”.
Freya Allan said that she learned a lot while filming with her partner, noting that “you can always take little bits of each other and that she really enjoys everything that her partners gave her on set.” The Witcher actress went on to say that Chalotra was a “great scene partner” and that they had a lot of fun together. Additionally, Allan said that she and her co-star formed a relationship off-screen that helped build her confidence before filming.
