The Witcher: Radio Show Shares New Pics From La Palma



 Images: Onda Cero

As The Witcher filmed in La Palma, Henry was seen out and about a few times. El Time shared several photos and now Onda Cero has released some more, as the radio show spoke with the La Palma Film Commission about Henry's visit to the Isla Bonita and the fact that filming ran very smoothly. Officials confirmed that all three directors on the series were on the island, speculating that's why there was such a variety of local sets. Their hope is that if the show is successful, The Witcher may return to film in La Palma.

The radio show also talked with the owner of a restaurant that hosted Henry and some of the members of the cast and crew over the span of four days. The woman said Henry was very nice and when the radio host mentioned he heard there had even been some Bachata dancing, the restaurant owner confirmed it -- adding that Henry also pulled out his phone to play some music of his choice. Before leaving he signed autographs for fans, with the radio host commenting that locals were excited to have him there. Watch the full report at Onda Cero La Palma.

Now that filming has resumed in Budapest, actor Amit Shah had some kind words to say about working with Henry after wrapping his part on the show.



Meanwhile, Executive Producer Lauren S. Hissrich gave fans a blurry The Witcher sneak peek courtesy of her smart phone, as she heads back to work.





The first season of the fantasy series is expected to wrap later this spring. More updates to come!

The Witcher: Director Shares Pic, More Buzz For The Show



That's a big scream and one intimidating stick figure!

You could call Lauren S. Hissrich son's drawing, the first "official" look from The Witcher set. She shared the details of her family trip to Budapest on an Instagram post this week.   




After getting an actual quick glimpse of Henry on set in La Palma, filming is now winding down on the island. Today director Charlotte Brandstrom, posted a pic from one of the gorgeous locations where the cast and crew have been working.




 We've also been getting updates from actor Adam Levy...





La Palma Film officials visited one of the sets a few days ago. In a release, they said The Witcher producers are loving the incredible locations that will appear on the Netflix show.




As production heads back to Budapest, a plane has arrived to pick up equipment used during filming ahead of this week's final scenes in La Palma.




In the meantime, the buzz for the show continues... This latest post by The Observer:

Stranger Things isn’t going to run forever, and with Netflix increasingly cancelling shows that don’t pop after a few seasons, they’ll soon need a new flagship series. While the market-leading streamer has several high-profile projects in the pipeline, one stands above the rest in terms of scope and ambition.

The Witcher, starring Henry Cavill, is based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s beloved fantasy novels and short stories, which have already inspired a line of incredibly popular video games. The eight-episode series will follow Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), who is “a solitary monster hunter” caught in a “[struggle] to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.”





We're keeping track of the latest news on everything The Witcher, so check back for updates!
