Henry Cavill throws The Witcher filming into chaos after hurting leg on assault course

THE Witcher star Henry Cavill has thrown the show’s filming into chaos after hurting his leg on an assault course — involving swinging axes.

The actor — who also plays Superman and was touted as a new James Bond — was told by doctors to rest after the injury at the studios.

Filming of the hit Netflix show’s second series has been suspended, with its production already behind schedule due to the pandemic.

Cavill, 37, had been 20ft high in trees and on a safety harness at Arborfield Studios, Berks, where the show is filmed.

A source said: “The filming has been hit because of what happened to Henry. He was on an assault course and injured his leg.

“He just suddenly pulled up and was clearly in a lot of pain. It wasn’t clear if an object had hit his leg or it was some sort of hamstring or muscle injury.

“It wasn’t bad enough to need an ambulance but it’s messed up the filming schedule as he can’t walk properly.

“He has to wear heavy armour in the scenes and he just wouldn’t be able to do it with his leg injury.’’

Last month Cavill posted on his Instagram page: “Thank you for hosting all of us on season 2 of The Witcher. Hopefully I shall return to your hills, dales and fells soon. Stay strong and stay safe, my friends.’’
