British actor Henry Cavill said in an recent interview that Geralt was trying to lift his feet to the end of the bathtub to make the iconic bathroom scene in Witcher III, but was not successful in that.
Whether or not you are familiar with The Witcher universe, you surely coincided with the iconic image of Geralt of Rivia, the main protagonist of the story, in the tub. Of course Netflix recreated this scene in The Witcher’s live action adaptation; however, a small detail was missing in the scene in question: Geralt’s feet leaping out of the tub.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1, Henry Cavill said that Geralt, who gave life in the series, wanted to take his feet out of the tub to copy the iconic bathtub scene in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. However, he stated that he could not do this due to the size of the bathtub.
