The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is developer CD Projekt Red’s crowning achievement, and thanks to Netflix’s own recently launched adaptation of the Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels, it’s seeing a huge resurgence in popularity. Here we’re going to review the voice actors of The Witcher 3’s cast, whose talent helps to bring its rich story to life.
Witcher 3 Voice Actors
Doug Cockle – Geralt of Rivia
American actor Doug Cockle plays the distinctively gruff voice of Geralt throughout the entire The Witcher video game series. Although this is without a doubt a career-defining performance, Cockle has played central roles in numerous other games, including Augmented Empire and SpellForce 3. He’s also credited with “Additional voices” in games such as The Division and Horizon Zero Dawn.
William Roberts – Vesemir
The oldest and wisest of Kaer Morhen’s witchers, Vesemir is also Geralt’s right-hand man in The Witcher 3 and is especially prominent in its opening few hours. Vesemir is played by American actor William Roberts, who is best known outside of video games as having played Rosy’s Father in Balto. He also played the senator in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.
Denise Gough – Yennefer
Irish actor Denise Gough plays Yennefer of Vengerberg throughout The Witcher franchise. You may recognize her face from 2015’s Robin Hood, in which she played a minor role. Outside of The Witcher, she’s also voiced the role of Tsarevna Alena in Dragon Quest Heroes II and Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below.
Triss Merigold – Jules de Jongh
Jules de Jongh plays the role of Triss Merigold throughout The Witcher video game series. She’s an actor who has worked almost exclusively in the video game industry, with a number of roles in other established video game franchises. You may remember hearing her voice in Mass Effect Andromeda (Cora Harpe), Horizon Zero Dawn (Beladga), Batman: Arkham Knight (Christina Bell), and many others.
Peter Marinker – Zoltan Chivay + Narrator
Peter Marinker demonstrates versatility in his range of voice acting talent, playing both the rugged dwarf Zoltan Chivay and the eloquent voice of the narrator too. Marinker is a London-based actor who’s been a professional for over fifty years. Since his first acting credit in 1968 he’s no doubt watched the video game industry grow from rudimentary platformers to the multi-million dollar AAA games that require talents such as his. He’s played roles in games such as Knights of Honor, Demon Souls, Dark Souls I & II, and The Witcher series.
Tim Beckmann – Dandelion
The eccentric Bard Dandelion is played by Tim Beckmann, a Canadian actor with experience across film, TV series, and video games.

Cortez in Timesplitters: Future Perfect.

Paul Thornley – Olgierd von Everec

Other video game performances include Addam in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, as well as minor roles in Warhammer: Total War, and Lego Marvel

MyAnna Buring – Anna Henrietta
The Duchess of Toussaint Anna Henrietta is played by MyAnna Buring, a face you’ll surely recognize if you’ve been Netflix’s The Witcher adaptation recently — she plays the role of Tissaia. Of course, Buring is a well-known actor for a number of other performances, such as Edna Braithwaite in Downtown Abbey. Her role in The Witcher 3 is her only video game credit.
Andrew Greenough – Detlaff/Ge’els
Andrew Greenough played the role of Ga’els in Wild Hunt, as well as that of the misunderstood vampire Detlaff in the Blood and Wine expansion.
