The Witcher is best known as a beloved RPG video game series from Poland’s CD Projekt Red, which follows Geralt on his quest as a monster hunter in a medieval fantasy realm. The game, though, was originally inspired by the fantasy novel series by author Andrzej Sapkowski.

Back in October 2018, screen tests of Cavill wearing the character’s iconic silver wig were released online, but fans were less than impressed with the bargain-brand Legolas and memes dominated the Internet following the release.




It looks like Netflix’s costume department finally got the wig right and Cavill is looking less Lucius Malfory and more leading man.


The Witcher will be on Netflix later this year.
