    How Much Money Did Henry Cavill Make Per Episode of ‘The Witcher’?

    While he remains in contention for the next James Bond, Henry Cavill is happy thanks to his ‘The Witcher paycheck. The ‘Man of Steel‘ and ‘Enola Holmes‘ star is sitting on a ginormous signing amount from playing Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s fantasy series ‘The Witcher.

    Before passing the baton to the Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, Cavill earned a boatload of money from his stint as Geralt in the first three seasons of the highly acclaimed series which is now set to return for its fourth season. But how much did he make per episode of the fantasy series?

    According to Variety, Henry Cavill picked up a whopping fee of $400,000 per episode, taking the overall total to $3.2 million by the end of the first season. As the show’s popularity soared, so did Cavil’s own fame and bank balance, as he collected a brand new amount of a million per episode, bringing his earnings to a splendid $8 million. 

    Speaking to Hollywood Reporter about his rising star power, Cavil said, “Something has changed, something has shifted. After 21 years of hard work, I have three jobs lined up. Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s my approach, maybe my value as a commodity increases being attached to things like The Witcher. Now I can really focus on the storytelling and grow from here.”

    Henry Cavill has exited as DCU’s Superman, but it is well-known how he lobbied hard for the part of the fabled monster hunter Geralt of Rivia. The most obvious reason is Cavill being well versed in the realm of fantasy, as he was already a devout fan of ‘The Witcher‘ franchise. Series creator Lauren Schmidt-Hissrich met Cavill even before the casting and was quite taken with Cavill’s fandom for the world of ‘The Witcher‘, as she “loved his passion and enthusiasm.” She and the team explored all possible avenues but eventually cast Henry as Geralt.

    While it would take some getting used to with Liam in Geralt’s armor, Cavill himself has quite a year to look forward to. He will be seen in Matthew Vaughn’s spy-thriller ‘Argyle‘ and Guy Ritchie’s ‘The Ministry Of Ungentlemanly Warfare’. Cavill will also spearhead the ‘Highlander‘ reboot directed by Chad Stahelski.
