Henry Cavil got injured during the time of shoot for the second season
The Sun said that Henry Cavil has injured in his leg during the time of shot for the second season. He wore a safety guard and he was 20 feet above from the ground at that time. According to a source, the incident did not require an ambulance but, it will affect Henry’s ability to wear the heavy guard for his role for The Witcher. Additionally, Deadline said that Cavil has a minor injury in his leg and he was sidelined for the time being. The production has begun again with him. The show is also supposed to take time off at the end of the year for the holidays. So it is highly likely that the production would not have to go on for a long time without Cavill.
The Witcher is an action series movie. So it has to often deal with some injuries also. There are so many action stunts in the series and it is bound for taking place of accident sometimes even if one takes all the precautions. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that no injury would take place in the ser from the actors or other key members of a production side. However, it is lucky that the injury of Cavill gets worked around for the Witcher show which also is also benefitting all the involved parties. The work is in continuance allowing the show and the rest of its cast and crew to carry on while also giving ample time for recovery to Henry Cavill.
