This is the second confirmed totally made up character to allow "diversity" in the TV show. Here is a discussion I found on this character.

"Ella-Rae‘s involvement in Netflix’s The Witcher was first revealed after Henry Cavill and the rest of the team presented the first teaser to the world at San Diego Comic Con. Her role has been a complete mystery ever since. We’ve reached out to Netflix and can now exclusively confirm who her character is.

Ella Rae-Smith plays a character named Fola. She is most likely an original addition to the show created by showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich and the team."

And it has been confirmed by the executive producer that some major changes to the books were made right from the very start.

"The Executive Producer insists that fans should not worry, and promises clarity will come as the season unfolds. “After the first episode, many viewers will think ‘that didn’t happen in the books’ or ‘that’s not how this scene went’. They will ask ‘why was it done this way?"

The other diversity character is Fringella's uncle, Artorius Vigo. While this is at least a real character in the books/games they changed his race.

Which BTW brings up if they will still have a relationship between Geralt and Fringilla.
I support real LGBT rights (Liberty, Guns, Bible, Trump)!
No collusion, no obstruction = 2020 VICTORY.

I wonder if Netflix is brave enough to make a series about Martin Luther King Jr. and cast Henry Cavill in the lead. Ya know, for diversity's sake.

Same principle, right?

Yes, very similar. In fact, if Netflix weren't so cowardly, they would have cast Geralt as a black man (or woman).

well, sounds like they already ruined this show.
i'd say cancel but they already ok'd season 2 when season 1 hasn't even aired yet.
really dumb.
If you don't like my post, then don't post back....that just shows that it was good enough to respond to, and kind of undermines your negative comments.

funny how any Caucasian can be changed to a minority.
but if you try the other way, its an outrage.

It hasn't always been the case.
For example, tried watching the movie Troy a while back but i couldn't finish it.
All Greeks looked like they were of north Germanic origin.
Hate s*** like that.

If this is really the sort of thing that gets people raging, you can always make the choice to avoid watching the show altogether. It's already clear that they want to appeal to as large an audience as possible, so things like this are expected. This is an adaptation, nothing more. The books remain exactly as they are.
