If a show has managed to captivate millions of viewers and gamers worldwide, it would have to be Netflix’s The Witcher, which stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia. This person seems more determined than ever to keep his grey hair.
Although we eagerly anticipate Henry Cavill’s return as Geralt of Rivia in season 3 of the Netflix series The Witcher, it would seem that the actor, who is also known for playing Super-Man, is more than ever attached to this project given his salary.
Henry Cavill doesn’t make more than $400,000 every episode!
If you follow the actor’s news, you probably already know that he is one of the biggest Hollywood actors of our day and is well-known for having played no other superhero besides Super-Man. Because of this, we quickly realize that Henry Cavill isn’t as well-paid as some other big names when we look at the numbers provided by Variety.
If our Geralt of Rivia only makes “about” $400,000 per episode (for a total of $3,2 million), Bryan Cranston (Walter White) has made $750,00 per episode for Your Honor, Pedro Pascal has made $600,000 per episode for The Last of Us, and Chris Patt has made at least $1.4 million per episode for The Terminal List…
Due to this, we quickly realized that our actor wasn’t “that well” compensated for portraying Geralt of Riv in The Witcher, even though the sum of 400 000 dollars per episode is enormous. And the fact that he accepted this sum would indicate, after Variety, that he was more than willing to do anything to interpret the sorcerer.
The fourth season without Henry!
Unfortunately for fans, The Witcher season 4 will not feature the show’s star actor, even though the main storyline will still center on our hero.
The actor reportedly wanted to bring his or her interpretation of Geralt of Rivia to the production, which would not have been successful.
As a result, the actor reportedly decided to end this adaptation and hand the role to Liam Hemsworth, who will take on the characteristics of the sorcerer in its place.
