About The Witcher and his stunts

When asked if he uses stuntmen for doing the stunts invoked in the show, Henry answered, “I do my best not to, for me, it’s really important that the character exists within the action as well rather than just an acting scene. It’s really important that the story and the character travel through all of those things.”

Cavill told how the TV series is based on the fantasy books by Andrzej Sapkowski. When asked if he has read those books, Cavill replied, “I met the showrunner and that’s when I learned there were books. Read the books and I realized I was missing out on the whole world of the stuff because I’ve been in the fantasy genre since I was a kid.”

Lastly, Kimmel joked about how Cavill’s look in The Witcher somewhat resembles Khaleesi from The Game of Thrones. “I modeled myself of Khaleesi and made them call me Khaleesi or Emilia,” Cavill added to the joke.
