Cavill let us know about his unique relationship with the audience in an interview with Vanity Fair. It turns out that the actor playing Geralt can often be found on Reddit:
"I am very happy that people liked the character so much. I know that there are mixed opinions out there as well, which I really thrive upon reading as well. For me, it’s vital to go about and read—I’m on all the Reddit forums. I’m reading all the reviews. I’m literally trying to get everyone’s information. Some of it is not useful, and other criticisms are incredibly useful. I take it all in, and I look forward to bringing it even closer and closer to Sapkowski’s writing.
I think any of those criticisms, they often lie in things like I was saying—we don’t have the advantage of a long involved conversation or dialogue with Geralt, so they are criticisms which I think I was prepared for. So for me, it’s about seeing that, understanding it, and working out how I can do my job better within the framework provided, [how to] appease and make those people feel comfortable that I do actually understand this character—and love this character just as much as they do."
We already know that the pre-production of the second season of The Witcher has begun, and on August 17 the actors will return to the set. The series will appear on Netflix in 2021.
