Henry Cavill Top Movie

August Walker – Mission: Impossible – Fallout (97%)

One of the best action films of the last decade, Mission: Impossible – Fallout might very well be the best entry in the series. And for a franchise that’s been around for more than twenty years, that’s a very admirable feat.

A large part of why Fallout is such a smashing success is Cavill. Playing the silent but deadly antagonist, August Walker, Cavill proved himself not only a consummate action star, but a great actor for villainous and morally ambiguous characters. His Walker is threatening, imposing, and lethal, and Cavill gave Tom Cruise a run for his money when on screen together. It’s no wonder why August is at the very top of the list, and why it’s Cavill’s best role yet.

Sherlock Holmes – Enola Holmes (91%)

Stepping into the shoes of a classic literary character is never easy, especially one that’s been portrayed so many times before, to great acclaim. Yet, Cavill successfully played the most famous detective in literature in Netflix’s Enola Holmes. And while the film centers on Sherlock’s younger sister, Enola, he still gets his moments to shine and definitely makes an impression.

Cavill manages to separate his Sherlock from those of Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch, creating a third iteration that’s still faithful to the character’s essence. Positively received by both critics and audiences, he is expected to return should a sequel be made.

Stephen Colley – I Capture The Castle (79%)

One of Cavill’s earliest roles, he was twenty when he played the role of Stephen Colley in the 2003 adaptation of Dodie Smith’s classic. Stephen is a supporting character, serving as a love interest for main character Cassandra. He is the handyman of Cassandra’s family who’s deeply in love with her.

The film is rather unknown and grossed only $6.5 million when released in 2003. However, Cavill manages to leave his mark, playing a sweet and noble character who doesn’t get the best of treatments.

Humphrey – Stardust (76%)

A blink and you’ll miss it role, Cavill wore a blonde wig and mustache to play the small part of Humphrey in Matthew Vaughn’s enchanting fantasy film, Stardust. He acts as a rival to main character Tristan, played by a pre-Daredevil Charlie Cox, who tries to win the heart of Victoria, the beauty of the town.

The film is wonderful and received a very positive reception from critics and audiences. Cavill has a charming scene at the end of the film, where his character shares a flirtatious moment with Robert De Niro. Now, that’s reason enough to see this movie!

Charles Brandon – The Tudors (69%)

The role that introduced him to mainstream audiences, Cavill portrayed historical figure Charles Brandon over four seasons in Showtime’s The Tudors. Playing King Henry VIII’s best friend and confidante, Cavill appeared on every episode and played a significant role in the story.

The show itself received positive reviews for its entire duration, with Cavill attracting a decent amount of attention for his performance. However, it was never as critically lauded or commercially popular as some of the other historical shows to come out of cable television.

Geralt Of Rivia – The Witcher (67%)

Some actors are born to play certain characters. And just like Cavill was the perfect choice to play Superman, he also took on another role that seemed tailor-made for henry cavill witcher : Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s 2020 adaptation of The Witcher.

Based on the series of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, the series follows Geralt, a magically enhanced monster hunter, and his relationships with both Princess Cirilla, Crown princess of Cintra, and Yennefer of Vengerberg, a powerful sorceress. The show received a positive reception from critics and overwhelming support from fans, who’re eagerly waiting for the second season, to premiere sometime in 2022.

Napoleon Solo – The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (67%)

Sporting an American accent and all the smoothness and swagger of James Bond, Cavill’s charisma was in full display when he played the leading role in Guy Ritchie’s stylish adaptation of the 1964 television series.

As Napoleon Solo, a thief turned spy for the United States who must join forces with an ill-tempered Russian, Cavill displayed an obscene amount of charm. And while the film received mix-to-positive reviews from both critics and audiences, almost everyone agreed that the Brit shone in the role, sharing great chemistry with his on-screen partner in crime, Armie Hammer.

Superman/Clark Kent – Man Of Steel (56%)

Arguably Cavill’s most iconic role, 2013’s Man of Steel launched him to superstardom. Become henry cavill superman He played the classic superhero in Zack Snyder’s reboot of the Superman franchise, a role he was practically born to play. In the film, and after finding out he’s a superpowered alien from Krypton, Superman must become humanity’s protector against the threat of General Zodd.

Although the film received a mixed reception when first premiering, and it still is quite divisive to this day, Cavill received an overwhelmingly positive reception. The actor would reprise his role in a sequel, 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and in 2017’s controversial Justice League. Although no MoS sequel has been greenlit (yet), Cavill will don the suit once more next year in the anticipated Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Henry Cavill facts

He Can Speak NINE Languages

But enough about his hobbies. What about his skills? Well, it turns out that Henry Cavill is also a skilled speaker. At least, when it comes to learning languages. It appears that Henry Cavill knows NINE languages. Though, he admits to only being comfortable and fluent in four of them. Those four languages are English, French, Spanish, and Italian.

Rather Then henry cavill speaks german

As for why Cavill speaks so many languages, he chalks it up to an interest in different cultures back during his school days.

“In school, I had an interest in ancient history and Egyptology in particular,” Cavill said, “There was a historical fiction writer named Christian Jacq who wrote a series of books, sort of Egyptology-based, and I really enjoyed them. I thought, ‘If I’m going to study something, why not make it something I really enjoy?’ The idea was to get a degree in ancient history or Egyptology and have the armed forces sponsor me through university. And join the armed forces afterward.”

The “Unluckiest Man In Hollywood”

Things weren’t always so positive and great for Henry Cavill, however, as he once carried the name the “Unluckiest Man In Hollywood.” This is because Cavill used to always lose out on mainstream roles.

In 2006’s Superman Returns, Cavill auditioned for the man in the red cape and lost out ot Brandon Routh. Conveniently, Cavill later won the role in Man of Steel. But that’s not all. Cavill lost the Cedric Diggory role to Robert Pattinson (which isn’t the only time the two competed for a role). Cavill also hoped to play as the iconic spy James Bond, but Cavill lost to Daniel Craig. Cavill also lost to Jaime Dornan in the race to 50 Shades of Grey. Though, perhaps he won that one in the end.

He Wears A Signet Ring

To honor his family and their history, Henry Cavil wears signet rings that hold the Cavill family crest. Henry also introduced the idea of his The Man From U.N.C.L.Echaracter wearing a signet ring as part of the costume design.
