The Witcher executive producer Tomek Baginski suggests that there is an explanation for why Geralt looks like Liam Hemsworth in season 4 instead of Henry Cavill. There have been many rumors, but no in-depth explanation. Whatever the reason may be, Liam Hemsworth will be taking over the role of Geralt in
season 4 – and during a recent interview executive producer Tomek Baginski suggested that an explanation for Geralt’s new appearance can be found in the source material, the series of novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski.Inspired by the works of Sapkowski, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family — the story of the intertwined destinies of three individuals in the vast world of The Continent, where humans, elves, witchers, gnomes, and monsters battle to survive and thrive, and where good and evil is not easily identified
.Speaking to Wyborcza, Baginski said (with thanks to Redanian Intelligence for the transcription), “Many book readers forget what Andrzej Sapkowski did in the fifth volume of the saga. Baginski said (with thanks to Redanian Intelligence for the transcription): “Many book readers forget what Andrzej Sapkowski did in the fifth volume of the saga. I’m not referring to specific events but rather the narrative framework introduced in this novel. This is not comparable to the popular concept of the multiverse, where suddenly there are many different realities. And this cannot be compared with, for example, the currently popular concept of the multiverse, where out of nowhere there are many different realities.“
Redanian Intelligence goes on to explain that Baginski is referring to a big revelation in the fifth and final novel of the saga, Lady of the Lake, where there are
a few passages set a hundred years after Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer’s story is concluded. By then, the story about the witcher, Ciri, and Yennefer had become a legend. And, like many legends, the story spread across the land with many different interpretations. It seems that the explanation is that in one version of the story, Geralt looked like Henry Cavill. In the new version, he will look like Liam Hemsworth. But the appearances of Princess Cirilla of Cintra and Yennefer of Vengerberg won’t be changing, because Cavill’s co-stars Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra will be returning to work alongside Hemsworth.What do you think of this explanation for why Geralt will suddenly be looking like Liam Hemsworth in The Witcher season 4?
