The Witcher: Henry Cavill on What Kim Bodnia as Vesemir Brings to Season 2

TV Club News || TV Show News:

When Netflix's The Witcher returns for Season 2 later this year on December 17th, it will bring with it a host of new actors and characters made popular by the books and video games -- and that includes several iconic witchers among others. Even so, there is perhaps no new addition more anticipated than the live-action debut of Vesemir, played by Kim Bodnia in the new season. Ahead of the season's release, Henry Cavill himself has offered some insight into what Bodnia brings to the new season as Vesemir.

"Kim and I were discussing the emotionality of these characters, and Kim brings some powerful emotion to [the role] and a real sense of soul and heart and connection to the wild and connection to nature," Cavill recently told EW while talking about the new season. "It's beautiful to watch and beautiful to be a part of. Some of my favorite scenes I got to perform with Kim. He does bring something really special to the character, and I think people are really going to enjoy it."

It is worth noting that while this will be the first live-action version of Vesemir to fully debut on Netflix, it won't be the first version of Vesemir in total. The recently released anime film The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf focuses largely on a younger Vesemir, and the character is voiced by Theo James. James also provided the off-screen voice of young Vesemir in the first season of the live-action The Witcher.
