The Witcher is a rolling business for Netflix and for Henry Cavill. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor more than doubled his salary between season 1 and season 2. We tell you everything.
The Witcher would be nothing without Geralt of Rivia and Geralt of Rivia would be nothing without Henry Cavill. As we know, the actor carries this live action adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski’s novels at arm’s length, even becoming one of the referents on the set.
His value is therefore no longer to be proven and this is reflected in his salary. While on season 1 he received around $ 400,000 per episode – making him one of the highest paid actors on television – he renegotiated his contract in season 2. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cavill is said to have earned over $ 1 million per episode. A juicy increase that could be repeated for season 3, which has already been announced by Netflix.
A nasty injury on the set of season 2 will not have prevented the interpreter of the Witcher from giving his all physically and struggling to satisfy both fans of books and video games … which he himself is fond of.
