According to latest reports coming in, Henry Cavill, who plays Geralt of Rivia on Netflix’s The Witcher, has injured his leg while shooting a scene for season 2.
A source shed light on the incident while speaking to The Sun and said:
“The filming has been hit because of what happened to Henry. He was on an assault course and injured his leg, He just suddenly pulled up and was clearly in a lot of pain. It wasn’t clear if an object had hit his leg or it was some sort of hamstring or muscle injury.
“It wasn’t bad enough to need an ambulance but it’s messed up the filming schedule as he can’t walk properly. He has to wear heavy armour in the scenes and he just wouldn’t be able to do it with his leg injury.”
The second season of The Witcher was delayed due to the pandemic and finally started filming in August this year. There is no information if this injury to Cavill will cause further delays to the production schedule, but the 37-year-old actor has been advised to rest by the doctors
Netflix premiered The Witcher in 2019 and the series was met with a lot of love. The show also stars Anya Chalotra and Freya Allen, alongside Henry Cavill, in pivotal roles.
