Well, if you have not yet had the time to watch the recent release, don't worry. We are here to give you a brief overview of Adjoa's role in the series (without spoilers).

Before the release of The Witcher 2Adjoa exclusively shared her character's role in the second season, which is quite impressive.

Stretching on how her character plays an important role in the series because of Nenneke's history with Henry Cavill's character, she said,

She's got that sort of internal tension that I find really interesting. She's got the longest relationship with Henry Cavill's character, Geralt. So she's known him since he was sent to the Temple of Melitele when he was a child.

If you are lost tracking down the story, you might want to quickly revise the first season.

Moving forward, she further explained her character as highly intellectual with a sense of strategy and battle while possessing healing and nurturing qualities.

Adding more to her character's introduction, she said,

She's also a bit twinkly. She's a bit sweary, and she's a bit funny. It's sort of tough love, I think. I've been saying about her: she's sort of got a warm heart, and hard hands.

After hearing her description, it's somewhat impossible to hold yourself from watching the series to learn more about the character on your own.

With a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, The Witcher season 2 is seemingly doing great than the previous season. While the series is turning out to be extensively well-received, it only adds to Adjoa's sought-after professional career.
