In the new Netflix series, Cavill will play the role of Geralt of Rivia. He said his character’s greatest power is “his ability to love.”

Cavill also shared that he underwent sword training, and he had no doubles for the show’s action scenes.

The Witcher follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

“The Witcher” will begin streaming in the Philippines on December 20, 2019.
