The reason for that is not what you're implying but something else mentioned by Punished Miku in another thread:Why do you think so many “American” roles are actually played by British theater actors?
There's actually not a lot of US based leading men in film in general. A very large portion of the leads we see that seem American in some of their most iconic roles actually have accents and are European or Australian.
Saw an article on it a while ago talking about possible causes; primarily that a lot of handsome alpha type guys are probably not going into drama club in high school in the US because of our culture or stigma surrounding theater / high school acting. Apparently that stigma is not as prominent in other countries. I'd imagine that stigma also exists for many black male teens as well, if not more so. There's a lot of tendency for black culture in the US to emphasize hyper-masculinity; generalizing of course.
Yes, they confimed Henry Cavill to play Abby in season 1.wait so abby will appear sooner than we thought?
I watched GoT. Her face doesn't look like Ellie, but she's a super talented and convincing actress in GoT where she plays a relatively similar role: a girl who acts as a tough, fierce, outspoke, 'wild' adult because had to grow in certain difficult context. In the case of GoT, being a young queen? of a kingdom that is in the middle of a constant war.I never watched GoT as I dont have HBO, but just curious is the actress who plays Ellie normal? She has a half-mental look to her. And a big forehead like she's Bonk's sister.
The Witcher is one of the most expensive shows ever. I don’t think this gets close to it at all.Yeah, and set shots always don’t do the final product justice. The Witcher looked terrible in those early shots and it turned out just fine. I’m guessing this has a much bigger budget. Just relax and wait for the final product.
You still don't make any sense. This is an HBO / Sony Pictures Television production with a massive budget. It has failures written all over it because of gay people? Do I need to start listing successful TV shows with gay characters and actors?whatever you say, this show has failure written on it.

If the show was based off books then no, it doesn't matter but since it's based off the game which millions have put dozens of hours into, it would make sense that the characters SOMEWHAT resemble their videogame counterparts. Otherwise why make a show about that game?. . .why does she have to? She has excellent genre chops (FRINGE was fantastic once they were able to let loose) and she is a good actress. Why wouldn't that be your driving motivation for the actor as opposed to "Let's limit our casting to actors who explicitly look like their digital counter-parts?"
