Freya Allan (born September 8, 2001 in Oxford, England) is a British actress.

While attending school, Allan appeared in a few short films and television series such as Into the Badlands and War of the Worlds (2019). She is best known for portraying Ciri in Netflix's The Witcher.



Tropes associated with her roles include:

  • Dawson Casting: A slight aversion in the first season of The Witcher; Ciri is fourteen years old while Freya Allan was seventeen years old during filming, though she passed for a younger teenager well. It's more pronounced in Season 2, given Ciri is presumably still fourteen while Allan was nineteen during filming and twenty by the release date.
  • What Could Have Been: Originally, Allan auditioned for the role of Marilka, a supporting character in the first episode of The Witcher. During the audition process, though, the casting direction thought she would be ideal for Ciri and Allan ended up being cast in the lead role instead.
