The Witcher is an American fantasy drama web television series created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich for Netflix. It is based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. The Witcher follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than monsters and beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a special gift, the three must learn to navigate independently the increasingly volatile Continent.
My world is cruel and predictable. You enter, you survive, you die.

Henry Cavill described his Witcher look as "incredibly shredded as well as scary" and stressed that he worked hard to balance aesthetics with what was appropriate for the character. He described his diet and training program to Spanish outlet Hobby Consolas, "There is a special diet, but I wouldn't call it a "Witchers' diet", I mean, it is what my trainer created for me, so maybe you can call it "Henry's diet". And yes, I'm focused on my training right now, making sure I'm as shredded as possible for The Witcher. I am also making sure I have enough muscle mass to actually look like someone who has gone through all of the hardships as well as the amount of training that Geralt has been through. A real sword is extraordinarily difficult to use for an extended period because of its weight. And if you can imagine that Geralt has been doing it since he was a boy, then to get into his skin, it is really important to bring that to life. I want the character to look incredibly shredded as well as scary. And so, the diet and workout reflect that." Both the teaser as well as the trailer for the series featured a shirtless shot of Cavill showcasing his shredded look. See more
