Henry Cavill Kept His Geralt of Rivia The Witcher Costume
Henry Cavill, the star of Netflix's new Witcher series has kept the entire Geralt of Rivia costume for himself.During an interview with NME, Cavill was asked whether he had been able to sneak any of the props or elements of his Geralt costume home to which he replied, "I took it all home."Sadly, our dreams of the Superman actor sitting around at home in costume where quickly dashed as Cavill also revealed the costume is simply too difficult to put on, especially when combined with the 2 hours of hair and makeup to top off the look.Cavill also talks about his relationship with the horse who plays Roach in the series. The pair spent about six hours riding every day to build a bond. Cavill explained that talking to Roach as he does in the series was also easy as he talks to his dog, an American Akita named Kal.We don't know what's next for The Witcher series in Season 2 but we may see Mark Hamill, as he seems pretty game to play Vesemir if these comments from 2018 are anything to go by.If you need a little help getting into the nitty gritty of Witcher lore, Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri's timelines are all explained here.
