Henry Cavill was an incredible Geralt and I am honored that he will surrender the reins and allow me to take the blades of the White Wolf for the next chapter of his adventure. Henry, I have been a fan of yours for years and have been inspired by what you have given to this beloved character. I will have a difficult task but I am really excited to be able to enter the world of The Witcher ”.
