The Witcher season 2: Freya Allan says Henry Cavill is a Witcher Bible on set

The Witcher season 2: Freya Allan says Henry Cavill is a Witcher Bible on set

There’s no doubt among Geralt fans that Henry Cavill is a Witcher whizz. But during filming for The Witcher season 2, it seems star Freya Allen got a better taste of the Superman star’s knowledge over the world of Continent (where the Northern Kingdoms and Nilfgaardian Empire exist in the fantasy world).

The 20-year-old actress recently opened up about her experience filming intensive action scenes and learning new skills for The Witcher. Yet out of all the cast members for the Fantasy series, Cavill seems to be the pundit among them all thanks to his Witcher expertise.

Speaking in an interview with the Fortress of Solitude, Allan was asked who would be the best when playing the Witcher video game. “As in playing the game? Yeah, it would be Henry,” said Allen. “He’s a total nerd.”

The actress further added saying, “He’s like a Witcher bible on set, we’ll be doing a scene and he’ll be like, ‘I think we should use this line from page 253 from The Blood of the Elves and I’m like, how does this dude know all this stuff.”

Trailers and teasers for The Witcher season 2 have already assured the series’ exploration of Allen’s Princess Cirilla of Cintra. Unlike season 1, the character will have a lot more than just running through the woods and will share a considerable screen time alongside Cavill’s Geralt of Rivia.

Ciri’s arc in the Witcher season 2 will take her to the Witcher stronghold of Kaer Morhen where Geralt trains her to fight. Show creator Lauren Schmidt Hissrich also addressed Ciri’s weak narrative in season 1 and called it an accidental “disservice” to the character. Fortunately,  the creators are making up for it in the upcoming season.

“[She is] starting to corral the anger inside her from everything that’s been taken from her in Season 1 and figuring out what to do with that anger,” Hissrich said speaking to Den of Geek. “To try to change what happened to me, or at least block it out and feel better via revenge. And then, of course, her realization as she is growing and changing this season, is that there’s no way – the revenge isn’t going to make that any better. It’s about how to start to move forward. And moving forward in her world is always going to be about learning to protect herself, and eventually learning to protect others.”

The Witcher is a Netflix fantasy series based on Andrej Sapkowski’s Witcher books and the famous video game. The Witcher season 2 will be available to stream on Netflix from December 17, 2021.
