“I have always believed in magic. I used to run into the woods as a little kid looking for witches. But I’m not superstitious, because I m not afraid of it. I see it as something really beautiful, and I wouldn’t want to live in a world without magic.”
“I’m a big PC gamer, and so I spend a lot of my time role playing games in the fantasy genre. I’ve played The Witcher 3 through, twice. This is the kind of thing I do in my free time, so the opportunity to work on this (The Witcher) for real and make it my job as well and get paid for doing my hobby stuff, was ideal. I also wanted to make sure that Geralt was represented as accurately as possible.”
