Although Henry Cavill might have a lot of issues with the creative team behind Netflix’s The Witcher for their disregard of the source material, but his co-stars weren’t part of his problems. Even though the actor is set to shift his roots away from the beloved series, the Man of Steel star has nothing but nice things to say for the entire cast, especially for his costar Anya Chalotra.
Unlike most aspects of the show, which have been drifting away from the source material, Anya Chalotra has played her part to perfection, and Cavill hasn’t backed away from commending the actress.

Known for playing the role of Yennefer of Vengerberg in The Witcher, just like Henry Cavill, who has cemented himself as Geralt of Rivia, it’s hard to imagine anyone as Yennefer except Anya Chalotra. Following her performance as Geralt’s beloved, the actress hasn’t backed away from showcasing her acting range and was successful in leaving the entire cast in fascination. Even though season 3 will mark the end of Cavill’s tenure as Geralt of Rivia, he is assured that Chalotra will keep on delivering exceptional performances. He said,
“I think whatever happens with the storytelling in Season 3, Anya’s gonna knock it out of the park. She is extraordinary in what she does as Yennefer. The subtlety in her performance is mind-blowing.”
While reflecting upon the departure of her costar from the iconic show that he helped in crafting from the very beginning, Anya Chalotra expressed that it was a hard pill to swallow.
