The Witcher (Netflix)
Well, obviously I have to put The Witcher on here. Arguably, the fantasy series is one of Cavill’s biggest successes, as it should be. The Witcher tells the story of Geralt of Rivia, one of the last known Witchers (basically a monster hunter) in the world, and the adventures of his life, told over hundreds of years in a medieval-esq kingdom full of monsters, sorcery, and evil men and women.
Henry Cavill has taken on the main role as Geralt and has done a great job of it. I think what makes The Witcher great to watch more so is that Cavill is actually a big fan of the series, both the books and the games, so he was extremely dedicated to getting this part just right. And, obviously, it’s one of the most-viewed original series’ ever on Netflix, so the fans are there.
