The Witcher’s Geralt Voice Actor Revealed Whether He Loves Yennefer or Triss More

The Witcher’s Geralt voice actor shares his thoughts on the unanswerable question of whether to choose Yennefer or Triss.


The voice actor of Geralt from The Witcher franchise has given his opinion on whether to choose Yennefer or Triss. There’s rarely a decision in a video game as controversial as choosing between romantic partners, and The Witcher 3’s choice between Yennefer and Triss is a particularly egregious example. These are characters that The Witcher players have already gotten to know through the three games, not to mention the books. Yet, like Geralt’s voice actor, the choice is too easy for some.

Romance has been a part of The Witcher franchise since its inception. In the first two games of The Witcher, Geralt doesn’t even have a choice. You can choose multiple times during each game, as it is hardly monogamous. In The Witcher 3, however, romance is framed with some finality. The player is forced to choose one or neither. Choosing to side with Triss or Yennefer leads to the ending specific to that romance. If you try to romance both women, it won’t end with either of them. Thus, despite Geralt’s adventures, the decision between Triss and Yennefer is considered one of the most important decisions of the series.

Few people probably understand the importance of this decision more than Geralt’s English voice actor, Doug Cockle. He has been Geralt’s voice actor since 2007, voicing him in the three main series releases, as well as DLCs, the A Night to Remember movie, and even the Gwent spin-off game. He knows the history of Triss and Yennefer, and Geralt’s relationship with both. So when Cockle says in his interview with Xbox On that he prefers Triss, it means something.

In the interview, Cockle is asked if he’s more of a fan of Yen, to which Cockle says out of character, “Me personally? No. I love them both, they’re both amazing women”. He then explains that if he were Doug Cockle in the game and not Geralt, he would “probably gravitate towards Triss”.

It makes a lot of sense that Cockle would choose Triss. After all, Triss has a prominent role in all three The Witcher games and can be romanced with her. Yennefer, on the other hand, is absent from The Witcher and only appears in flashbacks in The Witcher 2. Yennefer is an outstanding character in The Witcher 3, but she doesn’t have the same relationship with Triss as those who played The Witcher and The Witcher 2. Cockle would presumably have a much closer relationship with Triss.

Just because Cockle says Triss means the most to him as a romantic character in The Witcher series, it’s nothing more or less than a definite choice. In The Witcher books, for example, Triss is little more than a supporting character, while Yennefer is written as Geralt’s only true partner. Every The Witcher fan has their own experience with each woman, and only you can make that decision for yourself.

The Witcher 3 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
