Prince Radovid in the Witcher


The Witcher S3: How is Prince Radovid Different From The Games & Who Plays Him?

This story contains spoilers for “The Witcher” Season 3

“The Witcher” Season 3 showcases an ensemble of new and familiar characters, including Prince Radovid of Redania, an intriguing character portrayed by Hugh Skinner.
With King Vizimir, played by Ed Birch, appointing Radovid as the head of Redanian Intelligence, figures like Sigismund Dijkstra and Philippa Eilhart are left visibly discontent.
Fans of CD Projekt Red’s “The Witcher” games might deduce that Radovid, known as a more cunning and insidious figure, carries more depth than initially perceived.
Contrary to his portrayal as a simple prince, the game’s Radovid V the Stern is a potent ruler dealing with substantial mental health issues, adding a layer of complexity to his character.
In a departure from the game’s lineage, the show’s Radovid is younger, appears more regal, and is depicted as Vizimir’s brother rather than his son, altering the royal hierarchy.
This early version of Radovid possibly foreshadows a significant arc, suggesting that he might not be as naive as Dijkstra and Philippa initially assume.
