Jaskier Actor Comments on Henry Cavill’s Farewell to ‘The Witcher’

Joey Batey steals the show when he appears on Netflix as Jaskier The Witcher, and his chemistry with Henry Cavill’s titular Geralt of Rivia is one of those rare pairings that works despite all the reasons to the contrary. Given all of this, how does the actor take the news of his co-star of more than four years leaving the show mid-flight?

The Witcher Fans have yet to come to terms with Henry Cavill leaving the show, let alone Liam Hemsworth following in his footsteps from season 4 onwards. With fandom already on the fence after the writers strayed from source material in Season 2 – and rumor has it Cavill dropped out for precisely that reason – the live-action adaptation walks on a razor-thin edge and is ready to to crumble at every moment.

Batey, who portrays Jaskier aka Dandelion on the show, is approaching all of this with a positive attitude. In a recent interview to promote The Witcher: Origin of the Bloodof a prequel series starring the bard as the narrator, the actor revealed that he had been in touch with Cavill after the announcement, but said nothing about the show itself.

He’s even reached out to Liam Hemsworth, who appears to be taking this seriously, despite hardly being the fandom’s first choice to step into the role.

“I actually spoke to both of them. I spoke to Henry last week, we write quite a lot,” he said. “He’s a very good friend. I texted him just telling him how much everyone on the show would miss him, myself more than most because Henry and I are very good friends and we’ve spent the last four years telling these stories to write.

“I signed up [Liam] and said welcome. The strength in him and courage to come and be a part of a show like this is incredible and I hope everyone knows the commitment he is already showing to filling these incredibly big boots. He’s diving head first into it and he’s so serious about his research and his training and things like that. We will miss Henry very much, but Liam will bring something new, fresh and different to it.”

The Witcher Team returns this summer for another outing, luckily still led by Henry Cavill. But after that you have to flip a coin to a completely different witcher.
