Now that Game of Thrones is no more, and the first prequel didn’t get picked up, where are we supposed to get our next sword-fighting fix?
Well, Netflix’ upcoming series The Witcher — which stars a golden-haired, blade-wielding Henry Cavill — looks like a good place to start.
And even better, the main man apparently took inspiration from another golden-haired legend we all know and (used to) love.
“I modelled myself off Khaleesi,” Cavill jokes to Jimmy Kimmel in the interview above, after being presented with a side-by-side of his character, Geralt of Rivia, and Emilia Clarke’s Thrones character Daenerys. “I made people call me Khaleesi or Emilia on set… no eye contact, I want to be Emilia or Khaleesi.
“Call me mother of dragons, I’m fine.”
The Witcher drops on Netflix on Dec. 20.
