While fans will surely miss Henry Cavill from the series, certain cast members of The Witcher seem to have a positive mindset regarding Liam Hemsworth and the future of the character. MyAnna Buring, who plays a vital role in the series as Tissaia de Vries explained Dexerto,

“I’m really pragmatic about those things. I think when you have a fantastic character, the whole point of a fantastic character is that the baton gets passed on to other actors to play them.  

She added,

“Henry’s done an incredible job of setting up Geralt. He’s there now in TV series form; the world has been able to enjoy him, embrace him, and now the baton is going to get passed on. That’s exciting.”

Even Therica Wilson who plays Sabrina Glevissig told the media that she, along with the other cast member is just happy to have worked with Cavill and hence “wish him the best”

“We’re looking forward to the new explorations of Geralt with a new person behind it, a new actor, and a new face.”

According to Baginski, viewers who are familiar with the original work will be able to identify the events that led to Cavill’s departure. He thanked Cavill for his work and told the audience that the switch to Hemsworth will be smooth and “lore accurate.”


The main actor for the upcoming season is Liam Hemsworth, while other cast members include Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Freya Allan as Ciri.

The Witcher Season 3 Part 1 is streaming on Netflix.
