It has been some time since Henry Cavill entrusted the swordsmanship of Geralt to Liam Hemsworth for The Witchers fourth installment. The seasoned face of the franchise led his last leg in the show and courted farewell to the monster-hunting genes, transpiring a dash of disappointment amongst fans. While the self-acclaimed nerd did not miss out on even one opportunity to thank his stars for manifesting the role of his dreams, his departure was also as graceful as it could have been.

The humility that he bore as he stepped into the Witcherverse was also observed when the train left the station, especially with the heartwarming message he sent out in concern to the future Geralt.
