Henry Cavill picks up Yennefer of Vengerberg every time during a playthrough of CDPRs The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Yennefer or Triss? An age-old question asked since the dawn of time. Well, actually, that question has probably been asked by most since 2011 following the release of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, but you get my drift.

It’s a quite known fact that Man of Steel star, Henry Cavill is a massive fan of The Witcher, whether it's the Andrzej Sapkowski novels or the video game franchise from CD Projekt Red. In fact, it is reported that Cavill was so keen to play Geralt of Rivia, that he annoyed the showrunner of the Netflix adaptation, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. Though we’re with you, Mr Cavill.

What’s more, during the lockdown period of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cavill used his isolated time very wisely by finishing The Witcher 3 on its hardest setting. Well played Mr Cavill, well played.

So it’s safe to assume during the lockdown period, Yennefer seemingly became Henry Cavill’s digital love interest in the world of The Witcher 3. As reported by TheGamer (via Digital Spy), Henry Cavill was asked whether he was a Triss Merigold or Yennefer of Vengerberg kinda guy.

“For me, when I played the games, and especially when I read the [Sapkowski's] books, it's always been… I feel true to Geralt's core that it's team Yennefer,” the actor replied. “Of course, the great thing about the games is that you can do whatever you want, but for me — even in the games — team Yennefer.”

In related news, season three of The Witcher series on Netflix will be Cavill’s last before Chris Hemsworth assumes the role of Geralt of Rivia. I know, we’re sad too. While spoilers are being kept air-tight, Cavill’s final scene as Geralt is already being described as heartbreaking.

Season three of The Witcher is expected to premiere on Netflix this summer.
