Just when I thought I couldn’t thirst for Henry Cavill anymore than I already did, he goes and lands the role of Geralt of Rivia…
Fans of the books and video games have been waiting with bated breath to find out who would play the white-haired Witcher when Netflix announced they were working on a show. And while I may be excited to see Cavill take the role, I think Cavill is even more excited.
The Witcher takes place in a fantasy medieval fantasy world where Geralt is one of a few traveling monster hunters enhanced with supernatural abilities. Despite being wanted for his ability to rid towns of monsters, he’s also despised greatly by everyone for his supernatural powers. It seems the Netflix series will be focusing on the plot from the first video game where Geralt is tasked with curing a princess and runs into the sorceress Triss Merigold.
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich serves as executive producer and showrunner. Alik Sakharov, Alex Garcia Lopez, and Charlotte Brändström will direct portions of the eight-episode season.
Now that Geralt has been cast, who do you want to see play Triss Merigold?
