Netflix announced today (July 6) that Malaysian actress Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh is joining the cast of its upcoming fantasy-drama The Witcher: Blood Origin.

She is said to be portraying the character Scian in the six-part, limited series, which is a prequel to the hit show The Witcher starring Henry Cavill.

In the statement, Scian is described as “the very last of her nomadic tribe of sword-elves.

“No one can come close to her artistry with the blade, and no one carries as much loss within their heart.

“When a chance presents itself to retrieve a stolen sacred sword, taken from her fallen tribe by nefarious means, she launches herself into a deadly quest that will change the outcome of the Continent.”

What this basically means is that Yeoh is going to be in full action mode in the series.

The Witcher: Blood Origin is set in an elven world 1,200 years before the world of The Witcher.

Yeoh's other upcoming projects include James Cameron’s Avatar sequels and Marvel’s Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings.
