There is no denying that Henry Cavill is the greatest actor in the entertainment industry at the moment. In his acting career of almost two decades, Cavill has featured in a lot of masterpiece movies and shows that are going to live in viewers’ hearts for ages to come. However, one show that exceeded all the expectations and put Henry Cavill at the top has to be The Witcher.
The supernatural series saw Henry playing a monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia. The silver-haired beast earned a lot of love from both critics and fans as Henry Cavill perfectly embodied the mental and physical manifestations of the character. It takes a lot from an actor mentally and physically to portray someone else on the screen. Thus, actors often mention how they take something from every character they play. However, the same isn’t the case with Henry. The 39-year-old isn’t sure about the lessons he learned from The Witcher.
Henry Cavill reflects on his most famous The Witcher character
In an interview in 2019, Henry Cavill seemed confused when asked about his learnings from Geralt in The Witcher. The Man of Steel actor mentioned that his character in The Witcher gives out an important lesson of living life the way it comes and not wallowing in self-pity.
“I think it’s about acceptance not of people or actions but acceptance of self and how things aren’t always gonna go as you planned, even if you wanted them that way. It’s about picking yourself up dusting, yourself off, and doing the best job regardless,” Cavill said while giving an interview to the YouTube channel Spot.ph.
Cavill also reflected on what his process is as an actor. For an artist, it is important to switch the brain off after the shoot and come back to real life. However, Henry is someone who can never turn his brain off. He constantly thinks about his characters and behaves like them, which is quite annoying for his team. He also admitted to living in a perpetual cycle of fantasy genre due to extensive reading.
