The Witcher: Cavill should have acted in his normal voice, but he forgot about it

The Witcher

Netflix's TV series The Witcher has convinced fans. Cavill, in particular, was able to convincingly make Geralt of Rivia the protagonist. The actor also used a tone of voice similar to that of Doug Cockle, voice actor of the character in the CD Projekt RED game. It seems that Cavill should have been acting in his normal voice, but once on set he forgot about it.

In a WitcherCon interview, Cavill said that, during the auditions, he asked if he could use a "Geralt" tone but showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich told him to use her normal voice. Once on set, while acting out a scene between Geralt and King Foltest (third episode of the first season), Cavill simply forgot to speak normally.

"I didn't do it on purpose. It happened to I'm wrong. " The Witcher actor explained. "And then I said to myself, 'man, I just played the whole scene in the wrong voice'." After seeing the scene, however, Cavill felt it was better than normal speech.

Geralt, played by Cavill in The Witcher "I know it's very similar to Doug Cockle's outstanding work. It was for sure something that worried us. I don't want it to look like I'm plagiarizing another professional's incredible work. But I got to look at his work, listen to him, and I thought they are actually quite different. He's obviously inspired by him, but I have I created something of my own. I then talked to Alec and Lauren and they said, 'Okay, actually. If you want to do it like this, we can do it, we'll do the rest of the scenes.'

Cavill then explained that the production team wanted to redo some scenes, so inserting Geralt's "natural" voice in The Witcher didn't cause any particular problems. Cavill then explained that it's not a difficult voice to recreate: in the first season she was still finding the best way to use it, but in the second it was easy.

If you like Cavill's voice, here are the actresses of Yennefer and Ciri imitating Geralt's voice. Finally, here are the titles of the new episodes of the Netflix series in video and the official teaser trailer in Italian of Season 2.

The Witcher 3’ Is Getting Free DLC From The Netflix Series For Re-Release

The Witcher 3


WitcherCon was this week, a new convention that had to be all-digital this year, but appears like it’s going to be a regular thing going forward, mainly focused on the Netflix series (multiple series, now) though the games are certainly going to have a presence as well.

We got a bunch of new stills and trailers for The Witcher season 2 on Netflix, coming this December, but what caught my eye was some news about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s re-release for next-gen consoles coming later this year from CDPR.

The Witcher 3 originally had 16 pieces of free DLC that it released a few months after launch, ahead of its larger paid expansions, and now it’s continuing that tradition with new DLC related to the Netflix show.

No, do not expect some elaborate questline tied to a story from the show. But the announcement is teasing “extra items” inspired by the Netflix show.

I believe one example given is perhaps armor for Geralt in the style of Cavill’s armor from the show. And I suppose that could translate into costumes for other characters like Yennefer and Ciri as well, as previously part of The Witcher’s free DLC bundles were alternate looks and new armor sets. I would absolutely not expect anything so elaborate as “Geralt now has Henry Cavill’s face” or something, as awesome as that might be.

We still don’t have a date for the next-gen update for The Witcher 3, which is promised to only be coming “later this year.” CDPR is not big on release dates lately, as Cyberpunk players are still waiting on dates for both its own pack of free DLC and its next-gen release, both of which are supposed to be arriving within the next six months.

Though The Witcher Netflix show is straight adapting the books and disparate from the games, the two are interlinked regardless, as Witcher game fans helped propel the show to be a hit, and are its biggest cheerleaders. Henry Cavill himself is a huge gamer, and took inspiration for his Geralt performance from the games, he’s said publicly. With Cyberpunk’s standalone multiplayer game cancelled, it seems like CDPR’s next big project is likely to be The Witcher 4, though where exactly they take the series from here in the wake of Wild Hunt is anyone’s guess. Not going to rule out an entire game starring Ciri, for instance, but I guess we’ll have to see.

The Witcher universe is only getting bigger from here, despite its origins way back in 1986 when  Andrzej Sapkowski created the world. Excited to see how it evolves.
