Speaking of Anya Chalotra... I was ready to hate her. I had Eva Green on my mind ever since I first saw Yennefer in the games. Then I was caught in two minds when Katie McGrath played Morgana Pendragon in the television series Merlin. There was also Helena Bonham Carter - of Harry Potter fame - at the back of my mind.
