Henry Cavill takes to social media to reveal two horses he is training with for The Witcher Season 2 with Zeus and Hector.
“Look who I found! And for those asking. This is Zeus pronounced Zey-oos, but most may know this particular horse as Roach! And yes, Roach is traditionally a mare (lady horse) and if the name is anything to go by, Zeus, is not….but that shouldn’t limit his performance options. Why don’t we have an Oscar for best supporting horse?” Henry Cavill posted Wednesday on Instagram.
Henry Cavill with Zeus:
Henry Cavill followed the Zeus post with one about Hector.
“The mighty, the glorious, the powerful, and the kind, like a king of ancient myth….this is Hector. Hope you guys actually like horse content….because chances are, now that Zeus and Hector are here, you will be getting a lot,” posted Henry Cavill on Thursday. “For me my riding training is all about riding different horses. Over the years Geralt has had many horses named Roach and each one has been different, just like real horses. Every horse has a different personality and way of interacting, way of moving, and feel to ride too. So training on different horses builds up that knowledge that Geralt would naturally have built up over the years. As far as becoming a ‘horseman’ is concerned, I have many many years to go, but I am loving every step of the way.”
