Henry Cavill made his debut as an actor with a minor role in the 2002 film The Count of Monte Cristo. Half a decade of supporting roles and small screen appearances followed, along with a string of bad luck. Cavill was considered for the roles of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Edward Cullen in Twilight – both of which went to fellow Brit Robert Pattinson. Yet in 2007, things began looking up for the actor in the form of a four-season run as the Duke of Suffolk on Showtime’s The Tudors. Cavill then went on to star in last year’s blockbuster Immortals as mythological hero Theseus, and much like his character, the Gods seem to finally favor him. The 29-year-old actor will portray Superman himself in next year’s long-awaited Man of Steel, produced by none other than Batman veteran Christopher Nolan. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? We’d say it’s a star in the making.
