Henry Cavill, the star of Netflix’s new TV series The Witcher, has recently revealed that he is a gamer and shared some of the details of his man cave.

During an interview on The Rich Eisen Show earlier this month, Henry Cavill spoke about his interest in video games and described his gaming space. Though The Witcher star didn’t go into much detail, the actor specified that he doesn’t technically have what could be defined as a man cave because he currently lives in a small house in London, which doesn’t leave a lot of room for a personalized man space. His computer desk is therefore simply located in the corner of his very small living room.
