“April is the cruelest month,” the great writer, TS Eliot, once wrote. However, for Henry Cavill fans, it was the month of October that became horrible because that was the month when the iconic star announced his departure from The Witcher. The actor left fans devastated, along with this specific co-star on the Netflix show with the shocking news of his exit. And now as the final season starring Cavill reaches the audience, this actor cannot hold back her emotions.

Adapted from Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels, the Netflix Original show just landed the first volume of season 3. One of the most crucial parts of this season will be the love story of Geralt of Rivia and Yennefer of Vengerberg before the English actor leaves. The actress portraying Yennefer, Anya Chalotra, revealed how much the news of Cavill’s departure bothered her. She got the information after filming her last scenes with the Enola Holmes actor.

In her interview with The Telegraph, Chalotra revealed, the news was hard to digest because Cavill was family. Reminiscing the five-year span of working together, she added, “We’re going to feel that loss.” In another interview, Geralt’s Child Surprise, Ciri, portrayed by Freya Allan, also expressed how shocked she was when she found out about the departure.

The Justice League star, in his Instagram announcement, did not reveal the real reason for his exit. While the showrunner, Lauren Schmidt Hissrich promised to give Geralt a heroic send-off, kept her mouth shut about Cavill’s departure. But when Chalotra faced the same question, she also tried to duck the question with a witty answer.
