Like many actors, Henry had to make a lot of physical adjustments to himself to look more like his character. But away from all these changes, what does the actor really look like?

Henry Cavill’s height and weight tell us that he already has the body of a Hollywood hunk.

Risking possible blindness for The Witcher

The actor has been pretty open about some of the decisions he has had to make to fit into his role in the series. For one thing, he admitted that he had to risk possible blindness due to the contact lenses he had to wear to look just like his character.

In an interview with Metro, Henry confessed that doctors warned him against the prolonged use of the colored contacts which were supposed to give his eyes the yellow-hue of Geralt’s. He explained that the part of his eyes that were covered by the contacts should have been exposed to oxygen.

And so if you’re covering it up, you’re not getting any oxygen to it, and over a long period of time, you will do damage to your eyes. It’s just not worth it.

Henry didn’t listen to his eye-technician who kept insisting that he shouldn’t wear the contacts for long hours. He assumed she was being overly dramatic until he had an experience where he suffered an intense stinging and itchy eyes. This, left untreated, could have led to blindness.

The actor said:

So the contacts, as cool as they were, they did come with some challenges!
