Henry Cavill is a British actor. Cavill began his film career with a role in ‘Laguna’ in 2001 and Kevin Reynolds’ adaptation of ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ in 2002. He continued with appearances in BBC’s ‘The Inspector Lynley Mysteries’, the television film ‘Goodbye, Mr. Chips’, and the television series ‘Midsomer Murders’. In 2003, he had a supporting role in ‘I Capture the Castle’, followed by ‘Hellraiser: Hellworld’ in 2005, ‘Red Riding Hood’ in 2006 and ‘Tristan & Isolde’ in 2006. He had a minor role in Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of ‘Stardust’ in 2007.
Cavill had been set to play Superman in McG’s 2004 film, ‘Superman: Flyby’. However, McG pulled out of the project and direction was taken over by director Bryan Singer, who recast Brandon Routh as the lead in ‘Superman Returns’. Cavill was also the cause of a write-in effort from fans to see him cast as Cedric Diggory in ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ in 2005. The role eventually went to Robert Pattinson. Stephenie Meyer, the author of the ‘Twilight’ series, was outspokenly in favour of Cavill playing the character of Edward Cullen in the ‘Twilight’ film, calling him her “perfect Edward”. However, by the time production of the film began, he was too old to play the character, and again the role went to Pattinson.
From 2007 to 2010, Cavill had a leading role in Showtime’s television series, ‘The Tudors’, as Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk. He starred in director Joel Schumacher’s horror film, ‘Blood Creek’ in 2008, and had a supporting role in Woody Allen’s comedy film, ‘Whatever Works’ in 2009.
Cavill played the lead role of Theseus in Tarsem Singh’s mythological film, ‘Immortals’, released in 2011. He starred, alongside Bruce Willis, in ‘The Cold Light of Day’ released in 2012. On 30 January 2011, it was announced that Cavill had been cast in the role of Clark Kent / Superman in director Zack Snyder’s ‘Man of Steel’. He reprised the role of Superman in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, a 2016 sequel which featured a crossover with Batman and Wonder Woman. In 2017, he returned as Superman in ‘Justice League’. He co-starred with Armie Hammer in the film version of spy series ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’. He appeared at the San Diego Comic-Con in disguise to surprise the cast of ‘Suicide Squad’. In 2018, Cavill co-starred as August Walker in the action spy film ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’. Also that year, he starred in the psychological thriller ‘Nomis’.
