(Warning: This post contains spoilers for “The Witcher” Season 1)

Geralt of Rivia has many a badass monster fight during the first season of Netflix’s “The Witcher,” battling it out with a kikimora, striga, hirikka, Torque, golden dragon, roach hound, djinn and doppler. But when TheWrap asked Cavill to pick his favorite among those beasties, the actor decided none of them compared to the real monsters in the show: humans.

“I’m going to give a bit of a truly backwards answer here,” he told us. “My favorite monster fights were probably the human monsters I got to fight in Episode 1.”

To be fair, that was a pretty cool fight. But we pressed him again to find out what actual monster he enjoyed sparring with best.

“OK, OK. I would say the striga fight would probably be my favorite monster fight out of the show,” Cavill said.

Here’s the striga (that was actually princess), in case you don’t remember it from Episode 3:

Cavill broke down what shooting the fight was like for us.

“Well, the funny thing is with anything you shoot is what ends up on screen may be very different from what you see on screen,” he said. “There’s always the editing process, which is where storytellers get to express their vision for the story and that means the whole thing you shoot may end up looking very, very different. But as far as that actual fight went, I was fortunate enough to be working with a stunt performer in a suit for parts of it. So I had a fairly good idea of what it would look like. And we were doing practical stunts for both me and the performer. I know they added the effects after the fact, but everything that was happening there on the day was a version of what you see on screen.”

“The Witcher” Season 1 is streaming now on Netflix.
