If there is one thing almost every Witcher fan from around the world was in awe of, it was Henry Cavill‘s flawless performance as Geralt of Rivia.

However, one can’t blame the fans, since the way Cavill transformed himself into the character was incredible.

And recently, even the lead actress Anya Chaltora revealed that she was shocked to see the actor without the Geralt outfit.

Over the years, we have witnessed Henry Cavill play a huge variety of roles in various movies. However, unlike most of his films, The Witcher showed the actor in a completely different appearance.

In conversation with Entertainment Tonight Chalotra revealed, “Every time I saw Henry, he was in a white wig, and actually for me, when he wasn’t Geralt … I was shocked at what he looked like.”
