Henry Cavill is in the Brokilon Forests

The Witcher has been filming sequences in the Brokilon forest, the home of dryads, for the previous three weeks. Bola Ogun, who directed episodes 7 and 8 of The Witcher Season 3, directed those sequences.

Among the cast members who participated in the sequences that make perfect sense are Henry Cavill and Meng’er Zhang (Milva). Geralt is escorted to Brokilon to be healed by the dryads after a terrible defeat at the hands of Vilgefortz. He meets Milva there, who subsequently becomes an important ally of his.

Brokilon was filmed in the Canary Islands’ woodlands for the first season. They are now filming it in the local forests in Surrey, England. But there’s something else about the Brokilon scene that is surprising.

Brokilon has another visitor

According to sources, Eamon Farren’s Cahir is also among the cast members engaged in the Brokilon storyline. It is suggested that Milva helps an injured Geralt escape towards the end of Season 3’s last episode, while Cahir looks on from a distance. It is now clear that something pushes Geralt and Milva to flee Brokilon rather than Thanedd, as the coup occurs two episodes earlier.
