Henry Cavill, who stars as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher series, recently shared his passion for both the video games and the novels written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
Per an interview with French magazine Premiere, and translated by Reddit user u/Valibomba (so some nuances from the quotes may have been lost in translation), Cavill reportedly said, “I discovered the games, then I discovered the books, and the universe of The Witcher instantly meant something to me. I often thought about playing Geralt. When the opportunity appeared, I didn’t let the chance pass me… I didn’t even have the need to prepare myself for the role. Because I breathe, I live this universe every day. I already got numerous opportunities to think about this character while I was playing the games.”
