Netflix continues production on one of its most popular series, The Witcher, and series star Henry Cavill was spotted on location with his trusted equine friend Zeus. Together, the two form the dynamic duo that is Geralt and Roach.
That’s right, Roach news!
Filming has recently taken to Northern England’s Lake District, following months of secretive filming within Arborfield Studios. Now that the cast and crew are once again on location, tourists and locals are finding Cavill in various spots near the town of Ambleside. On Wednesday, Cavill was seen filming in Rydal Cave, and now he was spotted with Zeus (Roach) near the lake of Blea Tarn.

One can easily imagine Roach riding along the edge of the lake, a brooding Geralt sitting silently in her saddle. Though no other cast members were spotted, that’s not to say Henry was filming alone. We don’t really know what type of scene was filmed here, but we can say with certainty that the Lake District will deliver some of the Continent’s most striking scenery.

Season two of The Witcher is expected to release next summer, but that could change depending on the state of the Coronavirus pandemic in the United Kingdom. An animated film focusing on Geralt’s mentor Vesemir is expected to release some time beforehand.
