The Witcher: Henry Cavill's exit was difficult, says Anya Chalotra

The Witcher Season 3 is already being review bombed, despite not being out yet, and it’s not entirely unjustified. It was recently announced that Geralt actor and Witcher superfan, Henry Cavill, would be leaving the show, after its third season, being replaced by Liam Hemsworth in season 4.

This was a very controversial announcement, leading to a lot of speculation as to why Cavill left the show, with the only real conclusion being its blatant leap from the source material in its storytelling, which is something Cavill was incredibly passionate about. It’s no secret that Henry Cavill is an enormous fan of the books and the games, repeatedly playing through The Witcher 3 in his spare time.

Recently, Anya Chalotra, who plays Yennefer of Vengerberg, addressed Henry Cavill’s exit from the show, and what it meant for the show and its cast members.

Chalotra said: “"All we knew were the feelings that we have when any season comes to an end … It's full of pride and love and accomplishment for what we've done. So, we stayed in that moment rather than anything else.

“The news was... yeah, it's hard to take because he's a crucial part of the show and we all adore him. So, we're gonna miss him a lot. I wish him all the best."

While Cavill’s departure from the character has been a tough pill to swallow, Cavill himself has wished his replacement Liam Hemsworth all the best in his upcoming portrayal of the tough-as-nails Witcher. It does beg the question though, will they try to explain why Geralt looks entirely different in-between seasons? And if so, how are they going to make it make sense? It’s entirely likely that they won’t draw attention to the change, but if they do, it’s a safe bet that they’ll be some sort of magical element involved. Yennefer’s appearance changed as a result of magic so surely the same can be done for Geralt.

The third season of The Witcher airs on Netflix on the 29th of June, which will serve as part one of the season. It’ll then take a short break and come back for part two on the 27th of July.
