Henry Cavill recently opened up on how Garelt has changed in Netflix’s second season The Witcher and make him wiser.
When the first season of The Witcher was released, critics were somewhat divided about it but audiences generally clicked on the first season of the Henry Cavill Netflix show. Throughout the season, Garelt often becomes grumpy and irritable, even for characters like Jaskier that he has known for years. This time, however, Henry Cavill is determined to make Garelt more of a human.
In a recent interview with Collider, Henry Cavill on making Garelt think more. We’ve seen a bit of this in a clip where he interacted with his old friend Nivellen and now the actor has broken down his reasoning behind it:
“Most importantly, I want to represent Geralt as accurately as possible about the books and so do a lot of his fans, and so I have lobbied really hard to make sure he is more verbose, he sounds more intellectual, his word choice is more well thought out, and his approach to Cirilla and everyone else is not objectionable. Because in the beginning it came about when he was always grumpy with everyone and everything and I really wanted to show this holographic character, where instead of him fighting with everyone, whether it’s Cirilla or is it the Witchers, I wanted to show him as intellectual and thoughtful and, yes, have disagreements, but also show his approach as someone who has lived for more than 70 years.”
This is the official synopsis for Season 2 of The Witcher Netflix series:
Convinced that Yennefer’s life was lost in the battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia takes Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home in Kaer Morhen. While the kings, elves, humans, and demons of the Continent strive for supremacy beyond its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: mysterious powers. that she owns within.
