At the end of October, Netflix fantasy series ‘The Witcher’ announced a major change: the series will be shot in the fourth season, replaced by Liam Hemsworth as the male lead as Geralt, the role previously played by Henry Cavill. Many people are doubting whether Liam Hemsworth can play this role.
He is a good actor, but he looks too young, and because of the preconceived notion that his brother is “Chris Hemsworth”, the image of Liam Hemsworth’s little brother has taken root.
However, according to ‘The Witcher’ fan site, Liam Hemsworth auditioned for the role of Geralt back in 2018, and although he was ultimately unsuccessful, he also impressed Netflix.
As a result, Netflix reportedly did not schedule another full audition for the casting change and chose Liam Hemsworth directly.
However, before that, we can see Henry Cavill as the protagonist of ‘The Witcher’ season 3 in the summer of 2023.
