Filming can be one of the hardest things to do whether you’re on or off the set. And during The Witcher Season 2’s filming that took place last year, Henry Cavill sustained a bad leg injury. The production of the new season moved forward without much of a fuss while Cavill took time to heal. According to a recent interview with the actor, he didn’t see the injury as an issue but more of a chance to recover and reset.

“I think one of the skills I’ve picked up over the years is just forging ahead regardless of difficulty or hard work or trials and tribulations,” Cavill recently told PEOPLE about his injury as part of a larger interview about fitness and mental health. “So when the hamstring injury came, I tried to look at the silver lining. It was like, ‘Ok. I was working insane hours and it was exhausting and I now physically can’t work because I’m on crutches.’ So I was focusing more on taking the time off and going, how can I best heal myself?”

“When it comes to my mental health, [I] focus on what I can control and work on that,” Cavill continued. “And that gives me something to work towards rather than something to deal with or work through or manage my life through.”
