Biografie von Henry Cavill

Bei Cavill lief zunächst alles nach Plan: Behütete Kindheit mit vier Brüdern, einem Börsenmakler als Vater, einer Bankangestellten als Mutter, Internat, schon früh der Traum von der Schauspielerei – und der Traum wurde wahr. Nach einigen Erfahrungen im Schultheater ging nach der Schule alles Schlag auf Schlag. Seinen ersten Film drehte der junge Schauspieler mit 18, das Jugenddrama "Laguna". Nur ein Jahr später feierte er mit "" seinen Durchbruch.

Pechsträhne

In den folgenden Jahren geriet der Plan jedoch ins Stocken, Henrys Karriere stagnierte. Ein Casting nach dem anderen ging in die Hose. Bei " Begins" musste er sich geschlagen geben, die Hauptrolle in "Superman Returns" schnappte ihm vor der Nase weg. Gleich zwei Mal verlor er gegen : In der Rolle des Cedric Diggory in " und der Feuerkelch" und auch als in der "Twilight"-Saga machte Robert Pattinson das Rennen und die große Karriere. Und das obwohl Autorin ausdrücklich sagte, dass sie am liebsten Henry für die Rolle besetzen wollte – doch als die Produktion des ersten Films endlich begann, war er zu alt, um die Rolle des 17-jährigen glaubhaft spielen zu können.

Sogar für die Rolle des in "Casino Royale" war Henry im Gespräch. Letztlich musste er sich  geschlagen geben, weil er für die Figur des Geheimagenten wiederum zu jung gewesen ist.

Über Nacht berühmt mit "Die Tudors"

2007 läutete dann endlich ein Ende der Casting-Pechsträhne ein, es ging bergauf – und wie! Drei Jahre war Henry in der Erfolgsserie "Die Tudors" zu sehen und verkörperte darin einen charismatischen jungen Mann, dem die Frauen zu Füßen liegen. Die Serie, die für einen Golden Globe nominiert war und einen Emmy erhielt, war für Henry ein großes Sprungbrett. "Die Show hat viel für mich getan. Jetzt, wo das amerikanische Publikum mich wahrgenommen hat und weiß, dass es mich gibt, kann ich mich definitiv besser verkaufen."

Henry ist nicht mehr zu bremsen

2013 spielte Henry in Superman-Verfilmung "Man of Steel" die Rolle des Clark Kent/Superman. Regisseur schwärmte von Henry und bezeichnete ihn als "perfekte Wahl für den Umhang und das große 'S' auf der Brust". Und auch Henry freute sich riesig: "Im Pantheon der Superhelden ist Superman der anerkannteste und verehrteste Charakter aller Zeiten, und ich fühle mich geehrt, ein Teil seiner Rückkehr auf die große Leinwand zu sein."

Seitdem hat er nie mehr nach einem Filmjob suchen müssen, sondern die Castingagenten klopfen regelmäßig an seiner Tür. Und er reist von Set zu Set. Immer an seiner Seite: sein Hund Kal, den er seinen "ständigen Gefährten" und "besten Freund" nennt und regelmäßig auf seinem Instagram-Account zeigt. Eine feste Freundin an der Seite des hübschen Henry gibt es hingegen nicht. Das bringt ihm natürlich insbesondere bei weiblichen Fans nochmal Extra-Sympathiepunkte.

Don't taste the white chocolate, they said. BE the white chocolate. And thus, I became. See this and more in the latest edition of The Rake magazine. Before you run out and discover the wonders contained therein however, I'd like to thank the most eloquent Editor of the magazine and writer of the article, Tom Chamberlin. The pourer of white chocolate herself (read: stylist), Jo Grzeszczuk. The very talented photographer, Kalle Gustafsson. And also a special thanks to Mark's club in London for the second to none setting. #TheRake

My heart goes out to the all the victims and also to the families of the victims of the shooting in Las Vegas. A shocking event. Seeing how people banded together to help those in need was heartening. Thank you to local law enforcement, first responders and those who remained brave and did all you could.

Hello All, today is National Fitness Day here in the UK. So Kal and I have decided to extend our usual walk and make more of a meal of it! Starting fitness can be one of the hardest things to do, believe me I know, I've had to start and restart so many times over the years and that's where my problem has been. Once you start.... just keep going. It doesn't need to be a workout of the gods everyday just a little something, much like the walk Kal and I are on today. I know everyone says, "you'll feel better" and "it'll change your life" which are easy words when you're the fit one right? Annoyingly, they are exactly right. But this time its coming from someone who used to be called Fat Cavill and indeed sometimes revisits those glory days after too many beers, pizzas and curries. I know those first steps aren't the most comfortable, or the easiest but they are the most rewarding especially if you take them at your own pace. Alot of us struggle to find the time to get our workouts in, but if you make the time, I promise that you will genuinely benefit from it in all walks of life. Especially while walking bears. Make it your choice and you will achieve it. Do it for you! #NationalFitnessDay #KalFit #WorkoutBear

Yes, I realise this looks like I just sat down in the captain's chair of the Starship Enterprise and they engaged warp speed before I was ready but in truth, I just finished watching some Nomis footage with Director David Raymond. This stunning theatre is the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill and I never knew it was so nice! (My loss) The footage however, I had a high expectation for and it was indeed very creepy and really rather good stuff. Watch this space. #Nomis #ElectricCinema #StarTrek #Engage

In honour of national comic book Day I went down to Forbidden Planet in London and grabbed me some reading material!! Any recommendations for when I go back? As an aside, I do believe my Clark disguise is 100% on point because only 2 eagle eyed young chaps spotted me (you know who you are) and the gentleman who helped me with my purchases at the counter, very casually said "looking forward to the next one" as I walked away! Very smooth sir, very smooth. So basically, Clark Kent should have a handle bar moustache in the next movie. It seems to make sense to me. #NationalComicBookDay #Superman #JusticeLeague Forbidden Planet

So, there is this little movie coming out in November called Justice League. It may have come up on your radar once or twice. It involves a group of superheroes doing super heroic stuff. Facial hair is involved. Anyways, I'm here to let you know that you lovely people (who will undoubtedly have watched said movie at least 6 or 7 times by this point) will have an opportunity to come meet me, Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher and Ciarán Hinds in December at ACE Comic Con in Long Island, NY!! Whaaaaat? I hear you say. Yes dear friends, get all your moustache related questions ready because I will be there to answer them. I can't wait to meet you all and to also wax lyrical about DC on the big screen. www.aceuniverse.com #JusticeLeague #ACEComicCon Photo: Jason Fabok

Sitting on the Via Sacra in Rome. The weight of history here is palpable...so much so that there is a wonderfully hushed tone to everyone's exploration. It also happens to be Guy Ritchie's birthday today! So, happy birthday old boy and here's to the wonderful memories of shooting Man from Uncle here in Rome! Thank you for being such a wonderful Chap. Guy Ritchie #Rome #ManFromUncle

I love the way this beast feels....it's powerful, it's fast, it looks good and it looks different. Moustaches aside though, this Bentley makes me feel exactly the same way. #Beastache #ContinentalV8S Bentley Motors

This has been many months in the making but a message of gratitude is due just the same. Last night my brother Nik and I had dinner with Mr. Bruno Wang who won a Dunhill fundraiser auction during my Batman V Superman tour. He is a man of the arts and a kind one at that! Thank you, Bruno, for supporting the Royal Marines Charity with your very generous donation. The Royal Marines Charity Alfred Dunhill

Had the pleasure of being taught by Roger Gracie again this morning under the watchful gaze of Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu Grand Masters and Masters. My BJJ has slipped by the wayside a bit with my focus being on work but it's now time to get back into it! Such an enjoyable way to train. #BJJ #RogerGracieAcademy Roger Gracie Academy HQ

My heart goes out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding in Texas. Although I am so far away, I wanted to do my part in sending a message of hope and support in a situation where hope might seem very distant. I also wanted to sing the praises of everyone who has worked so hard to rescue and send aid during this very trying time for Texas. Let us all continue to donate and lend support where we can. I found the picture above while doing some digging for news and thought it was a great display of strength and defiance. Texas, we are with you. #HurricaneHarvey #Texas

We've all been hurt, we've all got it wrong, trusted the wrong person, made the wrong bet, turned the wrong way, made THAT mistake. What we've experienced is important, it defines us. But what is more important, and often forgotten, is that we decide how it defines us. The experience, decision or moment itself does not. Others will almost always try and define you by past transgressions more quickly than your past successes. I've made mistakes, I've been someone I'm not proud of plenty of times. I've fallen down. I've loved the wrong person. I've failed. I've been hurt. I've hurt. That's life! In life we are going to get it wrong....a lot. What I've tried to do and still try to do each time though is recognize those mistakes and mould them to my advantage. Make them a way to better myself. We've all had a bad experience thanks to someone else. Don't let that bad experience decide how and who you are. Don't let it hold you back from love or success or giving something a go. Don't vent your pain onto or at others in an attempt to bring them down and hold them back and cry your fury to the world. Don't let it turn you into the monster that hurt you. Use that experience! Run with it. Take the sum of your past and make it your tool to approach the future with. Move forward and love the experiences you have, use them to define you and make you the best version of yourself that is humanely possible. Your life is yours and will be whatever you want it to be. Love, grow, pursue, strive, challenge yourself. Be afraid so that you can be brave. The video above is what positive forward motion, determination, bravery, strong will, dedication and self respect looks like. This is my Lucy. She is one of the best stunt women in the world. She has defined herself. She continues to define herself. She grows, everyday. She is Lucy Cork because she says so.

Hi everyone! Meet Liang Yang who is another member of Eastwood Action Stunts. He hails from Harbin, China which is famous for building palaces made of ice during the winter!! I’m being serious here, actual palaces, Google that stuff....it’s nuts. Liang, before moving over to stunts was a Chinese Wu Shu champion and it truly shows in his ability to move and fight with precision but also extraordinary speed and endurance. While I was shattered after the work we did together he seemed unfazed and remained smiling…. a true champion in ability and especially character. #Stunties #MissionImpossible #MI6 #ChineseSuperman

Happy Birthday to Ben the Bat!! Today marks the 2nd year of Ben the Bat's young and very important life. However, it took some explaining to convince Kal that he is still number one non-human in this pack! @Durrell_JerseyZoo #BenTheBat #HappyBirthday #Kal

Dear followers, It is time to finally set the record straight in this moustache fiasco. Pictured above, is not a set on MI6 but is in fact the latest in a series of weapons being designed by Warner Bros and Paramount Studios to combat the entity know as "Henry Cavill's Moustache". There has been no discussion over whether to shave or not to shave for the JL reshoots, simply a relentless campaign to put an end to the seemingly inexorable conquest of this despotic 'stache. It is not a question of IF I should shave - it is a question of how can we possibly be victorious against such a beast without bringing our own doom raining down upon us. #MI6 #JusticeLeague #HenryCavillsMoustache #HopeIsAllWeHaveLeft #MoustacheImpossible
