Vladimír Furdík is best known for his portrayal of the Night's King in Game of Thrones. But this past year the talented stuntman was also involved in the filming of The Witcher, working closely with Henry on some of the show's stunt scenes.
At an overseas convention today, Furdík said he was very impressed by Henry and his ability to do action scenes.

He specifically praised Henry for being a quick learner during his fight choreography.

Henry Cavill a appris les chorégraphies des combats 1h avant de tourner et @VladimirFurdik est très impressionné car c’est assez rare ! #AMMD2— Live - Roster Con #AMMD2 (@rostercon_live) September 15, 2019
You can see some of those fight moves in The Witcher trailer. We can tell you from watching an extended clip at Comic-Con, that Henry is definitely bringing a powerful fighting style to the role of Geralt. The show debuts on Netflix this fall.
