Henry Cavill


  • [When asked how he deals with his fame.] "My fame? Truly I don't consider myself famous...long way to go yet. But if anyone does ask for an autograph it's a wonderful feeling..."
  • "My character could have been 'that guy on the show who is always shagging people,' but instead he's a genuine, real character — a person who has flaws." So says "The Tudors" hottie Henry Cavill, explaining that he's happy with his character's transformation from reckless playboy to devoted family man. "I like what Michael has done with him," adds Cavill, speaking of show creator Michael Hirst. "In life we all have phases we go through, big decisions we have to make that don't make everyone happy. You get to see that with Brandon." from <a class="external" href="http://www.bendweekly.com/news/17129.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bend Weekly Oregon</a>

  • In the February 2010 Issue of Glamour UK : "The 26-year-old actor shared his views on what guys really want:... Sometimes, after a big night out, you think, ‘I just want a cuddle, we can do it in the morning.’ ... Sending dirty texts and emails is a true betrayal. Men can have an emotional detachment from sex.... An ex-girlfriend called me ‘Pussycat’, but it was in Italian so it sounded better!"
  • Henry Cavill explains that Season 4 is a turbulent one for Brandon. “He’s certainly not in a good way - last year he killed thousands of innocents during the suppression of the rebellion and that weighs on his shoulders. And then he went down a path which was completely contrary to who he is - the dogged pursuit of Cromwell and his death. And then his wife decided that she loved him no longer. These things would leave any man in a bad place, in a dark place. So at the beginning I think he believes his life is winding down to an end and this is how it’s supposed to be.”
  • Both Brandon and Henry recover something of their youth during the Siege of Boulogne, the big outdoor set-piece at the centre of Season 4. “He’s found a reason to live again,” says Henry Cavill of Brandon. “He’s back doing one of the things he’s good at - leading men, fighting. He’s chasing his youth and he finds it in Boulogne. And in the young woman Brigitte he meets there: his heart opens again and life, the color comes back into life.”
  • On thinking he didn’t stand a chance in the Superman audition process: “All I could think was, Oh, God, they’re going to look at me and go, ‘He’s not Superman. Not a chance.’ The actor inside me was going, ‘You’re not ready! You’re not ready!’” Director Zack Snyder, on being impressed with Henry early on: “He walked out and no one laughed. Other actors put that suit on and it’s a joke, even if they’re great actors. Henry put it on, and he exuded this kind of crazy-calm confidence that just made me go, ‘Wow. Okay, this is Superman.’

  • Has a knack for languages. Speaks nine languages, including Italian, French, Nepalese, and Russian.
  • If he wasn't an actor he would have joined the Military Forces just like his brothers & father.
  • Has an interest in Egyptology.
  • Has auditioned for various super hero movies (Superman Returns, Batman Begins) but hasn't been cast...<a class="external" href="http://perezhilton.com/2008-09-04-the-next-superman-is" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">yet</a>! He also auditioned for Casino Royale but lost to Daniel Craig because Cavill was thought to young for the role.
