The second season of Netflix’s The Witcher saw our titular character fight many monsters and men throughout all of its eight episodes. And although Henry Cavill always prefers to do his stunts himself, he too sometimes needs a helping hand. That’s where his stunt double Adrian McGaw comes in, especially after Cavill suffered an injury at the end of 2020.
As McGaw comments about the shooting of the Myriapod fight: “It was an honour to don the costume while Henry was recovering and putting in countless hours of rehab to be back on set doing what he does so well!”
Here’s a video of McGaw performing familiar Geralt stunts for The Witcher Season 2 along with other stunt performers, shared by fight choreographer Godefroy Ryckewaert.
Here’s another one with McGaw doing the Geralt training scene from Episode 2 of Season 2:
