Henry Cavill had given his everything while working on the set of The Witcher. From the first season itself, he had put so much effort into his role that it was no doubt as to how much the fans would come to love Geralt of Rivia. Although the third season will be his last appearance as the character, his dedication to the role has been one to take inspiration from.

His knowledge of the lore is no new news and so his portrayal of the character felt like that of a skilled actor and a dedicated fan combined.

Henry Cavill Worked Ungodly Hours To Keep Up With The Witcher’s Schedule
Henry Cavill revealed in an interview that in order to keep up with his schedule for The Witcher, the actor worked harder than he ever did for the role of Superman. Eleven-hour shifts did not make it ideal for him to have a life outside of a filming routine. The shooting would almost every day be stretched till overtime. When it came to gymming, the only two options he had were either visiting the gym at 3 in the morning or during peak rush hour right after work.
“For this one we had a limitation on time,” the actor continued. “When you are two hours in hair and makeup every morning, it’s an hour to travel to work and then you work an eleven-hour day which almost always goes overtime and then it’s an hour home.”
He confirmed that in order to try and hit the gym before bed, he would have to sacrifice any time for himself. This did lead to a beautiful first season and a successful second season following that.
