In the series adaptation of The Witcher, an actor became a real version of a video game character from a novel, now the real actor becomes a video game character. So the circle closes for Henry Cavill.

We have known that actor Henry Cavill has a passion for video games not only since the Netflix series The Witcher. He had previously told in various interviews how he missed a call from Zack Snyder with the role offer for Superman because he played World of Warcraft.

One of his absolute favorite games is Total War: Warhammer 2 and so it came as no surprise when Henry Cavill showed on Instagram what he likes to do during the corona lockdown: coloring in Warhammer figures.

Considering we are, both, going through the Easter period, and going through The Lockdown, I figured it a good time to put a silver lining onto the cloud that is some of the darker moments during this time. So I've decided to polish some old skills and try my hand at some new ones! It is a time of rebirth after all. So, as you can see here, the obvious might look a little bit like a tiny helmet … which it is. One of my almost life long hobbies, that I've been following but not actively doing, is this. A company called Games Workshop … or plastic crack as "we" call it. Genuinely can't get enough of the lore they have built over the decades. They have been some of my most enthused reads! If you were in denial about me being a geek before, you can't hide from it now. Also, in the background of this photo, there may just be some completely new skills I'm working on ….. or there may not be, so all of your eye squinting and attempts at digital unfocusing will be in vain .. ..orrrr maybe they won't. I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank, from the bottom of my heart, all of the NHS (National Health Service, here in the UK) and healthcare workers worldwide, for your unceasing efforts to protect us. I imagine it might be feeling a little rough right now, but you ladies and gents are absolutely smashing it! Keep it up! You got this. "Hold on a second", I hear you utter ….. "if he has both hands in the photo … how is he taking the photo ??" New skills, my friends …. new skills. #Easter #Passover #GamesWorkshop #ProperGeek #Custodes #NewSkills #NHS #ThankYou #Raggy?

A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill) on

His existence as a Warhammer fan was also not hidden from Creatve Assembly and so Henry got Cavill own character in the latest Total War: Warhammer 2-DLC. In The Warden and the Paunch he's as Cavill, Loremaster of Hoeth to find. Here is a screenshot of the character:

Although the name is obvious enough, Cavill's character still has it the property "White Wolf". Geralt of Riva is considered the White Wolf and the bonus against large enemies is also very appropriate for a monster hunter. Visually, it could have been a little more Cavill.

The Witcher: Netflix series, books and games in full chronology

Henry Cavill is Superman, Geralt von Riva and can now also be a video game character. If you name another type of ice cream after him, this man has accomplished almost everything. For an apparently real Warhammer fan like Cavill, who claims to have played the game six times, it is surely a real pleasure to be a character in the game. The rest of us are patiently waiting for the second season of The Witcher.
