The Witcher Netflix Series: 7 Actors We'd Love to See Play Geralt - Mads Mikkelsen

These actors would fit the role of Geralt of Rivia perfectly in the upcoming Netflix adaptation of The Witcher.

5) Mads Mikkelsen

If you set to aside the interesting fact that Mads is making an appearance in Hideo Kojima’s upcoming indie project, Death Stranding, he really does have an inherent “Geralt” quality about him. Whether it’s his outward appearance, or his imposing nature on screen, we feel like Mads Mikkelsen would be a grand slam as Geralt.

Despite our desire to see what sort spin Mikkelsen would put on Geralt, though, there’s no denying that he’s an unlikely candidate for a number of reasons. Mainly, would he accept the role if it were offered to him? With his presence in Death Stranding we’re leaning towards a possible “yes,” but it’s still hard to say. Mikkelsen is primarily a film actor, and though he’s done stellar work on television shows like Hannibal, we’re not sure how he’d feel about working on a Netflix original series.
