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.

8 of the world’s best (or my favourite) comic book artists, created 30 original pieces of Superman art for our Search For Hope Treasure Hunt, which my team and I hid all throughout the Nassau Convention Center. From Friday to Sunday we released clues where fans raced to find said pieces of art, for a chance to win a limited edition Superman coin and to hang out with me for a 1 hour Q&A after the convention. Thank you to the artists for making this possible, thank you to the vendors at the Con for playing along with us and particular thank you to you, the fans. Your passion, energy and your joie de vivre made this weekend something truly special! We had a great time setting it up and we hope those that played, had an even better time on the hunt! Until next time... #SearchForHope #Superman ACE Comic Con

While I am not American, my faithful bear is not only American in name but was indeed born in Arkansas so I figured it only proper that he have a Thanksgiving treat! Pretty sure a full turkey might have been a bit much so I went with a chicken.... Happy Thanksgiving to you all! P.S I did not actually eat any of the raw chicken...I was just there for moral support. Kids...don't eat raw chicken. #HappyThanksgiving #AmericanAkita

Aside from my fashionable nipple attachments this didn't feel so bad. Turns out that behind me is a 1980ft almost sheer drop. I say "turns out" but my adrenaline was extremely aware of it at the time! Seriously though, I am so appreciative of all the incredible places that this movie has taken me and all of the wild and wonderful things that it has asked me to do. #MI6 #MoustacheImpossible #Norway

Just wanted to share this picture of my friend Wolfie and me. We often like to make odd faces at each other and punch at the air in between us. Really helps pass the time on set.There's more of this kind of fun to be found in Men's Health UK, which goes on sale tomorrow, no less! Not forgetting that there are also words to be read within the aforementioned magazine. Yay! Men's Health UK

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
