    He was born and spent his early childhood on the island of Jersey, the birthplace of his mother. His father, Colin Cavill, he served in the Navy and then worked as a financial broker. Mother Marianne was a housewife and raising five sons. Oldest Henry was the fourth.

    At first the boy was doing in elementary school, Saint Michael in Saint Sevie, where he loved to play on stage in school productions.

    18-year-old Cavill was invited to take part in the filming of a joint canadian-Italian Thriller «the Lagoon», and he agreed, not yet formed a final decision to become an actor. But working with American movie star Joe Mantegna has placed all points over «i».

However, the project went for some freedom, to enable viewers love artist.

    From Henry Cavell in Hollywood rise to fame actor, who from under the nose take the desired role, which at the end of 2005, the magazine «Empire» jokingly called him «the most unlucky man in Hollywood». It virtually adopted the role of Cedric Diggory in «Harry Potter and the goblet of fire», but in the end it passed to Robert Pattinson as the role of Edward Cullen in the acclaimed the vampire Saga «Twilight», although the author of these fantasy-romance novels by Stephenie Meyer insisted on the candidacy of Henry. But the Directors believe it is not age appropriate. For the same reason, but discounted for the youth, the actor denied the casting to the final painting in the «Casino «Royale», where he claimed to be the agent of James bond and was able to circumvent many of the candidates, including Sam Worthington, but lost to Daniel Craig. Another setback was the project «Superman returns» in which the actor was already approved in the lead role, but after a change of Director, it was decided to replace the cast, including Henry Cavill.
