Jul. 6th
- Michelle has joined Netflix's upcoming The Witcher prequel series, The Witcher: Blood Origin.

Set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of "The Witcher", "Blood Origin" will tell the story of the creation of the first prototype Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal "conjunction of the spheres," when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one. Netflix has given the limited live-action series a six-episode order.

Michelle will star as Scían, the very last of her nomadic tribe of sword-elves. No one can come close to her artistry with the blade, and no one carries as much loss within their heart. When a chance presents itself to retrieve a stolen sacred sword, taken from her fallen tribe by nefarious means, she launches herself into a deadly quest that will change the outcome of the Continent.
