No one can perhaps hold a candle to the fact that Henry Cavill lived a glorious life as Geralt of Rivia over three seasons of the Netflix fantasy series, The WitcherWithin a short span of two seasons, not only has he garnered a cult classic following for the show, but even his c0-stars and co-workers seem to have immense respect for the British actor.

Among many others, the show’s executive producers, Steve Gaub and Tomek Baginski also came forward recently singing the praises of the fan-favorite monster butcher. While talking to Yahoo UK, Gaub stated, “I think he left with his head held high.” He further insisted that while Cavill is leaving behind a great legacy, they are “going to be in great hands with Liam.”

Even with the choice to discontinue the show after Cavill’s exit, showrunner Lauren Hissrich has since promised a great final showdown for the heart of the series. The producers also maintained that stance, believing that the British actor will be proud of his one final run as Geralt.
