Having trouble sleeping? Try listening to Henry Cavill as he explores ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) by reading a book.
To promote his new Netflix show, The Witcher, the former Superman read excerpts from The Last Wish, the first book of the bestselling ‘The Witcher’ fantasy series by Andrzej Sapkowski.
On the show, dropping this Friday, Cavill plays Geralt of Rivia, a solitary white-haired monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
Even though the clip is just five-and-a-half minutes long, Cavill’s deep, calming, seductive British voice. enough to put you in a trance. And the Internet is freaking out. YouTube user Keshav Kk trumpeted, “Petition for Henry to record all the books on audible.”
Elsewhere Aether Blackbolt praised, “Every Netflix episode can we just have Henry narrative a short recap of the previous episode in this same format? That would be brilliant lol.”
Kristen S wrote, “The camera cutting to his muscles then his face is making me breathe harder,” while feniu10 suggested , “If this series bombs, the remaining seasons should just be an audiobook read by Henry Cavill.”
Netflix is banking on The Witcher as the new Game of Thrones (didn’t they say the same thing about Marco Polo?). The streamer is so confident that they renewed it for second season before the first has been launched.
We’ve seen the first five episodes and we think GOT fans (who know zilch about the Sapkowski books) will enjoy the show: it’s gritty and sexy; has nasty monsters and brutal swordplay, and plenty of shirtless moments to satisfy Cavill devotees. Whoopie!
The Witcher premieres this Friday (Dec 20) on Netflix.
