Almost every actress and fellow co-star have stated how Henry Cavill is one of the nicest persons to work with. But besides that, the Man of Steel actor is known for his lovely personality and attractive physique. This topic was further raised during an interview with Entertainment Tonight where the Yennefer actress revealed how she was shocked to see the real look of Cavill when he removed the white wig.
The Witcher always presented the Enola Holmes fame in a very different look. The transformation even shocked Anya Chalotra as she says:
