Henry Cavill has become one of the most respected actors in Hollywood. The British actor is highly admired for his role as Superman in the DC Extended Universe and Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix fantasy series The Witcher. Cavill recently was in an interview. And there, he opened up about his dog, Kal, being tremendous emotional support in trying times. The actor is currently in the limelight because the upcoming Season 2 of Netflix’s The Witcher is scheduled to premiere on December 17.

In a candid conversation while interviewing with ITV’s Lorraine, Cavill said that he carries his American Akita, Kal, everywhere he goes. Cavill also said that Kal is his best friend.
