Henry Cavill: The interpreter of Bruxo Geralt de Rívia in the series on Netflix revisited the digital version of Continente, created by CD Projekt Red, during the pandemic. Fan of the franchise, Henry Cavill told Total Film magazine that he took advantage of the quarantine period to play The Witcher one more time… and in the hardest mode.
“I decided to play on the highest possible difficulty, something I’ve done before, and it was really stressful,” the actor told the publication. Cavill, who also starred in DC movies in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, claimed that because he didn’t have as much time on his hands, he had forgotten how stressful it was to play hard mode.
The actor was already a fan of the franchise even before being cast in the lead role on the Netflix series. His experience with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the last game in the series released by CD Projekt Red, made him interested in the opportunity to star as the protagonist of the first season, with the second scheduled to reach streaming later this year.
“This season I really wanted to make sure we represented Geralt from the books more faithfully,” said Cavill, noting that we’ll see Wizard talking a little more season 2. He reassures fans that despite being talking a little more , the character remains the same monster hunter as ever. “He’s still Geralt de Rívia, but he definitely seems a little more intellectual.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has versions for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with the release of an upgrade for the current generation of consoles coming soon for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Season two of The Witcher hits Netflix on December 17th of this year.
