The DCEU star Henry Cavill plays an incredible role in the Netflix adaptation of The Witcher. Starring in the prime role of the Geralt of Rivia, Cavill’s show helmed by Stephen Surjik has received many positive reviews. But, many of the dissenting critics are not impressed with the Henry Cavill series.
The Witcher has received mixed reviews from the viewers and critics. Rotten Tomatoes has a 67% approval rating and a 92% average audience score. This reveals that the show is fairly well-reviewed but has been at the brunt of some criticisms as well.
How did Henry Cavill react to shush the hate?
Henry Cavill breaks his silence on the hate reviews on Netflix’s The Witcher. He opens us about how he “thrives” on the response of the viewers.
Cavill is an ardent fan of the Witcher franchise. As he takes on the role of Geralt of Rivia for the Netflix series, he makes it a point to read the reviews about his performance. He also has a befitting reply for those who are quite critical of his performance.
Take a look at how he replied to this matter:
“I am very happy that people liked the character so much. I know that there are mixed opinions out there as well, which I really thrive upon reading as well. For me, it is vital to go about and read—I’m on all the Reddit forums. I’m reading all the reviews. I am literally trying to get everyone’s information. Some of it is not useful, and other criticisms are incredibly useful. I take it all in, and I look forward to bringing it even closer and closer to Sapkowski’s writing.”
Cavill also seeks to explain what creates a flaw in the point of view of the audience. The viewers do not have the same insight into the franchise, and they tend to isolate the character to criticize it. He adds, “I think any of those criticisms, they often lie in things like I was saying – we don’t have the advantage of a long involved conversation or dialogue with Geralt.”
But Cavill makes it a point to prepare himself for the criticisms. He further adds
“So, for me, it’s about seeing that, understanding it, and working out how I can do my job better within the framework provided, [how to] appease and make those people feel comfortable that I do actually understand this character – and love this character just as much as they do.”
This is what makes Henry Cavill as iconic a star that he is.
