When an author writes a book, there is a lot of pressure on the actors to adapt their work. For Andrzej Sapkowski, he seems fulfilled with who plays the lead character in The Witcher, Henry Cavill.
A perfect fit
During a recent interview, Sapkowski spoke about Cavill's performance as Geralt in The Witcher. He claims to be a fan of his portrayal, even claiming that when he pictures Geralt talking, it's now with Cavill's voice since he took on the role.
Andrzej Sapkowski created the Witcher series in 1986 with the first book. Five more sequels were made, with even more short stories also being written.
Netflix began adapting Sapkowski's books in 2019. Three seasons have been made, with the most recent one being split into two parts this summer.
Henry Cavill portrayed Geralt for the first three seasons. He starred alongside Anya Chalotra, Freya Allan, Eamon Farren, and Joey Batey. However, he is now set to hand off the mantle to Luke Hemsworth, who will now play the part in future seasons.
Outside of The Witcher, Cavill is known for playing Superman in the DCEU (now DCU). He made his debut in 2013's Man of Steel and would go on to appear in a few more of their films. He has also starred in the likes of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and the Enola Holmes series (another Netflix property).
Coming up, Cavill will star in Matthew Vaughn's Argylle, as well as two more collaborations with Guy Ritchie. First is The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare and then another untitled film from the director.
