Fans of The Witcher already had the cast revealed to them, with main characters already been chosen for their roles for the Netflix series. However, what we hadn’t seen yet was how these actors and actresses would look as their characters.
Netflix Reveals Henry Cavill in Full Geralt Attire for The Witcher Series
Netflix shares a tweet today that shows a screen test for Henry Cavill who is taking up the role of Geralt of Rivia. While the only depiction we’ve seen of the Geralt’s character is through the eyes of CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher games, it seems Netflix has decided to go a little more Legolas with their vision. While this might not be the final look for Geralt, it gives more of an idea of how Cavill will look in this role.

The Witcher Netflix series is set to launch in 2019 according to this recent promo video.
