British actor Henry Cavill rose to fame in 2013 as the screen incarnation of Superman in "Man of Steel," and reprised the character on several occasions while also providing brawn and gravitas for such hits as "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." (2015) and "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" (2018). Born Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill on May 5, 1983 on Jersey, the largest of England's Channel Islands, he began his education at St. Michael's Preparatory School on Jersey before crossing the Channel to attend the Stowe School, a private boarding school near the town of Buckingham, England. He was initially drawn to ancient history, which he hoped to study at university through an armed services scholarship. But a chance encounter with Russell Crowe, who filmed "Proof of Life" (2000) at the school, inspired Cavill to turn his interests toward acting, which he pursued through school productions. By chance, a casting director visited Stowe in search of a young actor to play Guy Pearce's son in Kevin Reynolds' version of "The Count of Monte Cristo" (2002), and chose Cavill for his looks and relative acting experience. Roles in high-profile British films, including "I Capture the Castle" (2003), followed, but within a few years, these had given way to low-budget or largely unseen projects, like Reynolds' "Tristan and Isolde" (2006). Cavill had also earned a reputation for missing out on major projects, including two that went to Robert Pattinson - "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (2005) and "Twilight" (2008) - as well as James Bond in "Casino Royale" (2006) and ironically, Superman in what would become "Superman Returns" (2006). He busied himself instead with supporting turns in Woody Allen's "Whatever Works" (2009) and a recurring role as the first Duke of Suffolk on Showtime's historical drama series "The Tudors" (BBC Two/CBC Television, 2007-2010). A turn as the mythological hero Theseus in Tarsem Singh's "Immortals" (2011) reconfirmed Cavill's knack for physical roles, which in turn put him back in the spotlight for the Superman film franchise. He assumed the cape for Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" (2013) - with his acting inspiration Russell Crowe as Superman's birth father, Jor-El - and reprised the D.C. Comics hero in two more films, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016), with Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader, and "Justice League" (2017), which added Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Between these special effects-fueled epics, Cavill played '60s TV super-spy Napoleon Solo in a big-screen adaptation of "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," and played a double-crossing agent opposite Tom Cruise in the blockbuster hit "Mission Impossible - Fallout." With an array of hits now under his belt, Cavill divided his time between television, playing a monster hunter in the Netflix fantasy series "The Witcher" (2019- ) before moving on to another enduring pop culture figure - Sherlock Holmes - in "Enola Holmes" with Millie Bobby Brown of "Stranger Things" (Netflix, 2016- ) as the consulting detective's younger and equally talented sister.

QUOTES FROM Henry Cavill CHARACTERS

Clark Kent/Superman says: Stay down! If I wanted it, you'd be dead already!

Clark Kent/Superman says: What's your position on the bat vigilante in Gotham?

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Daily Planet, wait, do I own this one, or is that the other guy?

Clark Kent/Superman says: Civil Liberties are being trampled on in your city, good people living in fear.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Don't believe everything you hear, son.

Clark Kent/Superman says: I've seen it, Mr Wayne, he thinks he's above the law.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: The Daily Planet criticizing those who think they're above the law is a little hypocritical, wouldn't you say? Considering every time your hero saves a cat out of a tree, you write a buff piece editorial about an alien who if he wanted to can burn the place down, and there wouldn't be a damn thing we can about it.

Clark Kent/Superman says: Most of the world doesn't share your opinion, Mr Wayne.

Bruce Wayne/Batman says: Maybe it's the Gotham City in me, we just have a bad history with freaks dressed like clowns.

Clark Kent/Superman says: I can take you in without breaking you!

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: I'm surrendering to mankind, there's a difference.

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: Wouldn't be much of a surrender if I ressisted, and if it makes them feel more secure and all the better for it.

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: My parents taught me to home my senses, Zod. Focus on just what I wanted to see, without your helmet, you're getting everything. And it hurts, doesn't it?!

General Swanwick says: Then I'll ask the obvious question: How do we know you won't one day act against America's interests.

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: I grew up in Kansas, General. It's about as American as it gets. Look, I'm here to help. But it has to be on my own terms. And you have to convince Washington of that.

General Swanwick says: Even if I were willing to try, what makes you think they'd listen?

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: I don't know, General. I guess I'll just have to trust you.

Colonel Hardy says: This man is not our enemy!!!

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: I grew up in Kansas, General! I'm about as American as it gets!

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: Don't do this!

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: Krypton had it's chance!

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: The world's too big, Mom.

Martha Kent says: then make it small. Focus on my voice. Pretend it's an island out in the ocean. Can you see it?

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: I see it.

Clark Kent/Kal-El says: I grew up in Kansas, you can't get more American than that.

General Zod says: You already have.

Superman says: My father believed if the world found out who I really was it'd reject me. He was convinced that the world wasn't ready. What do you think?

Jonathan Kent says: You're the answer, son. The answer to "are we alone in the universe".
