‘I actually just want to talk about my co-stars here, because once again it was such a pleasure and an honour to be working with you guys.’

Lead role: The Superman star has played Geralt of Rivia, a magically enhanced monster hunter known as a witcher, since 2019
Henry went on to tell the trio that working with them was ‘the biggest pleasure’.
He concluded: ‘So, [I] just want to say I’m gonna miss you. I’m gonna miss you very much.’
This series marks the Superman star’s final outing as the beast hunter before Liam Hemsworth takes over the lead role for season four.
The beloved series follows the journey of a mutated monster and witch hunter as he travels across mythical lands to slay supernatural beasts.
Geralt, played by Henry, is one of the few remaining Witchers on the continent, and he struggles to find his way in the wicked world as others often misunderstand him.
The trailer begins with a voiceover of Geralt saying, ‘Neutrality, it won’t help get you a statue, but it will certainly help in keeping you alive.’
The Witcher is shown travelling by horseback alongside characters Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), and Ciri (Freya Allan), as they adjust to their new life together as a family.
The trio is shown journeying through barren landscapes as they share tender moments mixed with daring sword fights and dangerous obstacles.

The scenes flash in quick edits between multiple battles with enemies and monsters who possess other-worldly powers.
In an ominous voiceover, the Witcher reveals ‘the dangers we’ve seen foretell an even more menacing future.’
The fearless warrior is then shown kissing Chalotra’s character in a forest before he admits, ‘For the first time, I understand real fear.’
In season three, as monarchs, mages, and beasts of the Continent compete to capture her, Geralt takes Ciri into hiding, determined to protect his newly-reunited family against those threatening to destroy it.
Entrusted with Ciri’s magical training, Yennefer leads them to the protected fortress of Aretuza, where they hope to uncover more about the girl’s untapped powers.
Instead, they discover they’ve landed on a battlefield of political corruption, dark magic, and treachery.
They must fight back, put everything on the line – or risk losing each other forever.
Joey Batey returns as Jaskier, Royce Pierreson as Istredd, Anna Shaffer as Triss, and Kim Bodnia as Vesemir.
It was announced that Liam, 33, would replace Henry in the Netflix series in October 2022.
Fans have now been gunning for Henry to play another iconic role – James Bond.
He previously revealed he was in contention for the role back in 2005 but lost out to Daniel Craig.
