Hello Geralt! La Palma Press Catches Up With Henry

It's been a crazy busy schedule for Henry, since he arrived in the Canary Islands earlier this month to film The Witcher. While there's been no photos of him at the filming locations, the La Palma press caught up with him as he enjoyed a night off.

It's midnight. From the door of a bar in Tazacorte you hear cries of "handsome! handsome!..." Someone raises his hand and says hi gratefully: it's Henry Cavill. Yes, the last Superman, who is in La Palma giving life to the wizard Geralt de Rivia, main character of the Netflix series, "The Witcher." It is the first images captured of Cavill in the Isla Bonita (...) After several days of intense work in the natural landscapes of La Palma, last night he walked through the town of Tazacorte, initially unnoticed. He enjoyed several tapas on the terrace of Tasca La Marmota, sitting quietly on the avenue, at a good temperature. After a while, despite the cap he was wearing, everyone around him knew it was him. Nobody bothered him. That's how we are the palmeros. Almost two hours of quiet dinner with several of his companions, including some bodyguards.

Only at the end of the evening, hours later, when he retired back to the hotel, some fan asked for a snapshot: "I can not by contract, I'm sorry." Although, he did sign an autograph. Cavill will continue in La Palma for several more days (almost two weeks of filming have been scheduled in different parts of the Island). Despite being a quiet, friendly Island, his presence generates such an impact that it is almost impossible for him to go unnoticed.

Thanks to El Time for the report and pics. Just yesterday, The Witcher Executive Producer Lauren S. Hissrich teased Geralt's costume.

We can't wait to finally meet Henry's Witcher, when the show premieres later this year!

'The Witcher' Begins Filming In La Palma

It was an early wake-up call for the cast and crew of The Witcher in La Palma, with the first day of filming there beginning at about 7am. An official with La Palma's Film Commission told a local radio station that Henry was on set today and that everything appears to be going well. The Netflix show will be filming at various locations that will be closed to the public on shoot days.

The military installation known as "El Fuerte" is serving as base camp.

The local news media is reporting that filming will move to La Palma on Wednesday, after the cast and crew shot at several locations around Gran Canaria this past week. The pics below are a bit spoilerish, but so far Geralt has not been spotted (other than in Henry's new video). 

Executive Producer Lauren S. Hissrich has also been posting some beautiful photos from the different sets -- See them all on her Instagram.

More than four hundred people are taking part in the next round of filming including the cast, crew and many extras.

The Witcher is expected to film at various La Palma locations for about two weeks before filming returns to Budapest. The Netflix fantasy series is based on the novels by Andrej Sapkowski, with Henry playing monster-hunter, Geralt of Rivia.
