Henry Cavill Escapes the Public Eye in an Unexpected Way

Henry Cavill spends his free time in a unexpected way!

The 36-year-old actor recently explained that in order to escape the public eye, he likes coming home for some solo gaming.

“Every time I step out my front door, I’m hyper aware. Even if I’m not looking terrible, you still realise there are people taking sneaky photos of you, because that’s what people like to do. And then they put them on the internet and you see them on Instagram and you’re like, ‘Oh, my god,’” Henry explained to GQ.

He continued, “At home, I get to sit playing games for ridiculous amounts of hours and escape there, because going outside has the opposite effect.”

Henry added that he has played The Witcher 3, a 100-hour role-playing game, two-and-a-half times to completion.

That makes him the perfect fit for the lead role in the new Netflix adaption of the game, which just debuted on the streaming service.

Henry Cavill Dehydrated for 3 Days to Get His Body Bathtub Ready for 'The Witcher'!

Henry Cavill is opening up about what he did to get his body jacked for his new Netflix series, The Witcher!

While making an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the 36-year-old actor dished about his intense preparation for his role as Geralt of Rivia, which included dehydrating himself for three days.

“Diet is difficult, and you’re hungry, but when you’re dehydrating for three days you get to the point, on the last day, where you can smell water nearby,” Henry said.

Host Graham tells Henry that this can’t possibly be healthy. He further clarifies explaining, “It’s not no water for 3 days. On the first day you’ll have a liter and a half, the second day half a liter and the third day no water and you’ll shoot on the fourth [day].”

Is 'The Witcher' Too Confusing? Showrunner Shares Her Thoughts

The new television series The Witcher is now streaming on Netflix and there are some potential viewers who are cautious about starting the show because it might be too confusing.

Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has responded to concerns in a new interview.

“The place names aren’t familiar, the people’s names sound weird. Nothing is really familiar,” Lauren told TheWrap. “The most important thing to me in Episode 1 is that you understand what a witcher is, once you have that knowledge, then you can kind of be along for the ride and things that seem confusing in Episode 1, hopefully, by the time you get to Episode 2 and Episode 3, you go ‘Oh my God, I totally understand what these things are now — but I understand why it wasn’t told to me immediately upfront.’ I think the journey is definitely part of that experience.”

The Witcher is based on both a book series and a video game, though Lauren says they are using the books as the main source material.

“For purely logistical reasons, we can’t go page through page of the book and put it on screen,” she said. “We only have eight hours in this first season and we have to pick and choose the best ways to introduce these characters and the stories we tell about them — and also keep in mind what we’re hoping to set up for the future. We’re in a lucky enough position now that we know there is going to be a Season 2 of The Witcher, so some of what we’re doing is laying down the building blocks for future seasons of stories we know we want to tell.”

Henry Cavill in 'The Witcher' - Here's Why He Begged for the Role

Henry Cavill‘s new Netflix series The Witcher is out now and this is a role that he’s so proud to have received!

The 36-year-old actor revealed that he begged for the part of lead character Geralt of Rivia right after he learned the book series/video game was going to be turned into a TV show.

“I called my agents and said, ‘Right, I want to at least get into the room as early as possible and see if I could get this. It’s really, really important to me,” Henry said during a press conference. He called his agents every other day to find out if they had heard back about the casting process yet.

“By the time it got to the stage [when The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich] was actually taking meetings, they said, ‘Look, you’ve gotta meet this guy, otherwise he’s gonna turn up to the door,’” Henry said.

On getting the role, he added, “It’s a dream come true. I consider myself very fortunate – I love acting anyway, but to be able to play a character who I play in my head anyway in my free time, whether it’s in the computer games or books, is a dream come true. I hope I’ve done it justice.”
