It’s being reported that actor Henry Cavill has injured himself whilst filming The Witcher Season 2 for Netflix, which isn’t very good news for the show. The news comes from The Toronto Sun, who’s claiming that the British actor has injured his leg.
The Witcher Season 2’s production was forced to be stopped a few weeks back due to some crew members testing positive for COVID-19. However, apart from that, things were seemingly going along smoothly for the show – until now that is.
The Toronto Sun has reported that Cavill suffered a leg injury while he was on an “assault course.” Thankfully, Cavill’s injury wasn’t severe enough to have them call an ambulance. That said, the actor was struggling to shoot some of the scenes on The Witcher Season 2 and seemed to be in pain.
Henry Cavill has reportedly injured himself and The Witcher Season 2’s production is now on hold
A close source has told the Canadian publication that Netflix has been forced to suspend production of the show due to the fact that Henry Cavill “can’t walk properly”, which is a blow to the show and for Netflix. It remains to be seen whether this injury is something with his leg or whether he’s pulled a muscle. However, it means he cannot perform to the best of his ability at the moment.
The Witcher Season 1 was praised for its incredible action sequences and one of the main reasons they were so good was Henry Cavill himself. He put a lot of work into his scenes, and it really showed. However, some of the action set pieces that didn’t involve Cavill were also pretty spectacular.
After having worked with the legend that is Tom Cruise on Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Cavill insists on doing his own stunt work. That shouldn’t really come as a surprise. Yet, this means that they won’t be able to carry on production until Cavill’s back to his very best.
