Geralt and Henry Cavill’s other roles
One fan from Canada asked Henry to compare Geralt with other roles he had played. Cavill replied, “He is a particular character, and that’s what so wonderful about him.

Henry has portrayed heroes like Superman, Sherlock Holmes, and Napoleon Solo in “The Man from U.N.C.L.E”, which are not as twisted as Geralt. Hence, he pointed out that Geralt is not your ideal hero. Instead, he is a mercenary who kills for money and rarely regrets it.
The similarities between Henry Cavill and Geralt
During the promotion of The Witcher season one, when the host asked Cavill about the similarities between him and Geralt, he said, “I think there are probably some similarities between myself and Geralt. I definitely associate with him and maybe that’s just because I’ve been inside his head for eight books, and you do develop relationships with these characters,” Henry admitted.
Cavill’s passion for and devotion towards the game and books have helped him ace the character. Even his co-stars acknowledge his extensive knowledge about the franchise by referring to him as ‘The Witcher Bible’ or ‘The Witcher Encyclopedia’.
