Despite their chaotic clashes and seemingly mismatched vibes, these two always circled back to each other. But now, as Henry Cavill bowed out after five incredible years, Chalotra took a walk down memory lane.

Reflecting on their time together, she fondly recalled Cavill’s stalwart support, admitting his pivotal role in shaping her portrayal of Yennefer’s epic journey.

Chalotra almost kept tight-lipped on the reason behind Liam Hemsworth replacing Geralt in The Witcher universe. However, she dropped hints about what that could mean for Yennefer. Instead, she cheered on Cavill’s future, steering clear of directly addressing Hemsworth’s role shift in her interview. She hinted at fresh perspectives brewing in the bond between Yennefer and Geralt. Each new chapter in their story might unlock something unexpected.
