There seemed to be a general consensus among the cast that Hungary was by far the worst filming location. In an interview at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Henry Cavill, Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra, who each play Geralt of Rivia, said Princess Cirilla and Yennefer von Vengerberg were questioned about the conditions of the shoot in Budapest. From their immediate facial expressions and audible reactions, especially those of Allan and Chalotra, it was clear that the time they worked there was no picnic.

Allan cited the cold as one of the biggest setbacks on location: “I’ve always acted like the snow [in Hungary] and even if we filmed some [scenes] in the Canary Islands I thought: ‘Oh, I’ll go and it will be warm!’ But no, it wasn’t!” Allan said that even there she had to take a hot water bottle with her as they were shooting in cold, mountainous areas.

Chalotra elaborated on what Allan said, describing the recording conditions as “brutal”. She also credited the same piece of gear for coming to the rescue, noting, “I always had my hot water bottle with me, so it was fine.” She then added, “And I think I filmed in every element.”

In fact, in Season 1, Chalotra was the only one of the main trio to film in high heat as Yennefer is teleported into a desert where only sand dunes stretch around her as far as the eye can see. But according to Chalotra, part of the excitement was taking pictures in the different elements and landscapes.

The second season has been a bit more lenient towards the cast, with the eight episodes filmed mainly in multiple locations around the UK due to the COVID-19 pandemic – although that certainly brought its own challenges.
