The Witcher Netflix Series’ Henry Cavill Shows Off His Geralt Scars
Excitement over the new Netflix adaptation of The Witcher is rising as more and more details about the series find their way onto the internet. As filming for the series continues on location in Europe over the past few months, set photos have surfaced showing the beautiful natural locations where filming is occurring, as well as leaks of Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia on set.
However, some Witcher fans were made cautious about test footage released last year that showed Cavill in costume and wig, but noticeably missing the iconic Geralt scars fans have come to know. Well, now the actor has released a new image which may calm some of those fears.
Henry Cavill recently released the new image on his Instagram account. The photo shows Cavill lifting up his shirt to reveal some significant prosthetic scars along his side, with the caption “When you take work home with you.” He does state that these are from his work on The Witcher, confirming that Geralt will have some scars visible in this version.
Not all of Cavill’s face is shown, but from what we do see, it does not look like Cavill has any of the facial scarring that fans of The Witcher video games might recognize. It should be noted that this series is based on The Witcher novels, so not everything from the games will be present here. Still, for those hoping for a hardened, battle-worn Geralt in this series, we definitely know that this adaptation will not shy away from showing the consequences of Geralt’s past.
