Actress Meng’er Zhang left quite an impression with her first mainstream film appearance in Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. She took on the role of Xu Xialing, the sister of our hero. She has quite a history with stage and musical productions in her hometown. Now, it seems she has set her eyes on the next franchise as she has officially joined the upcoming third season of Netflix’s The Witcher.
The actress took to her Instagram account to share the news, where she also offers some details on what her role will be. Her character’s name is Milva and is a human that was adopted by dryads. Here’s the full description:
A human adopted by the dryads of Brokilon Forest, Milva is a fierce and talented huntress. Exact archery skills coupled with a stone-cold aptitude for survival make her a formidable adversary in the unforgiving Contentint – those that cross her, do so at their peril.
After an iconic performance in Shang-Chi, it’s great to see the actress get her next high-profile project. There are also quite a few rumors that the Ten Rings will get their own Disney+ series, which would very likely also feature her returning to the role of Xialing. So, it looks like Zhang is going to be quite busy in the coming years.
She’s not the only one joining the next season, as Netflix has also taken to Twitter to announce that Zhang will be joined by Robbie Amell, Hugh Skinner, and Christelle Elwin.
It’ll be exciting to see how the project expands, especially as The Witcher further explores Geralt’s travels across the lands. Who knows what other monsters and creatures we might meet that fans of the books have been waiting for it to finally make its way into the popular Netfli series.
