The online streaming company paid its casts around $30 thousand per episode for the first two seasons, increasing them to $200 thousand to $250 thousand for the third season and after.

Anya Chalotra in The Witcher
The Wanderlust star Anya Chalotra came to be, thanks to her appearance in The Witcher, where, as we all know, she portrays the lead role of the sorceress, Yennefer.
Anya’s role was that of a girl with congenital hunchback initially, but all changed when she was accepted in the Aretuza School of Sorceresses. She hated her body since childhood, and when she had the chance to change her look, she happily did it, though she had to pay the cost; the cost being the inability of bear a child. Well, the story later revolves around her trying to find ways to get back what she lost, the ability to become a mother.
Well, during her initial appearance, she had to use a mouthguard for the jaw misalignment and wear prosthetics to create that crooked posture. Well, the prosthetics strained her back during the shoot, and so, it was quite a painful experience for her.
