Fans of Game Of Thrones and Lord of the Rings have been waiting for it like the messiah. Broadcast since December on Netflix, The Witcher has just dethroned The Mandalorian as the most wanted TV series in the world, according to a report in Business Insider at the end of 2019. The show is an adaptation of the cult novels by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski and gave rise to the ultra-successful video game of the same name. To slip into the all-black look of the Geralt of Rivia of The Witcher, a professional monster hunter, a Viking physicality and charisma were needed to meet the standards of this Dantesque project. With his chiselled dark Ken-like features and a gravely voice - which he really worked for this show - Henry Cavil has all the necessary depth and complexity for this hero who underwent magical mutations to make him superhuman. Endowed with a symbolic dimension, the Witcher is a mutant but he is, perhaps, less frightening than humans, as the tumult of the fictitious political context echoes the modern world.
