Henry Cavill Interview

written by Annie XXX.V

Great new Interview with Henry by Collider.com, you can listen to the audio interview on their website:

I’ve done a lot of interviews over the past eight years, so you can put it in perspective when I say getting to talk to Henry Cavill on the set of Man of Steel was one of the highlights of working for Collider. It wasn’t only because he was super cool and generous with his time when he’d spent all day filming a complicated action scene. The main reason this was one of the best interviews I’ve ever been part of was due to Cavill wearing his Superman costume during the interview! As a lifelong Superman fan, getting to be on the set and talking to the person playing the Man of Steel was literally a dream come true.

During the group interview, Cavill talked about the daunting nature of the role and project, his training, the wire work, perfecting an American accent, what it’s been like filming on location, working with the rest of the cast, which comics he’s enjoyed reading, his interpretation of Clark Kent, the action scenes, and so much more. Hit the jump to either read or listen to what he had to say.

Question: So I gotta start by asking about the suit. That does not look comfortable.

HENRY CAVILL: It’s not so bad.

No?

CAVILL: No, but I’ve got a harness on underneath it, so I’m moving quite stiffly, but it’s really not so bad.

We really appreciate you taking the time.

CAVILL: Oh, an absolute pleasure. We appreciate you guys coming and asking a few questions.

We heard you guys are shooting some six day weeks. We’ve heard that it involves you waking up at four in the morning, working some very long hours. Is this even more challenging of a role than you anticipated? Talk a little bit about just the daunting nature of this role and this project.

CAVILL: As far as anticipation? No. It’s exactly as hard as I anticipated, so I’m okay. It’s not like I suddenly stopped and went, “Oh my God, this is impossible.” I was expecting very early mornings, so I’ve got to get up, train in the mornings and then go to work for a 12 hour day. That’s all expected and fine. As far as the sheer scope of it, it’s wonderful. The more the days go on, the more I’m enjoying it.

“The Cold Light of Day”: Henry Interview

written by Luciana XXX.VIII

The site Flicks & Bits has an interview done with Henry, not sure when done but published this week. Check it:

In 24 hours Will Shaw’s family will be dead. Armed with a gun, but no information, distraught, confused and alone in an unfamiliar city, Will (Henry Cavill) is forced to piece together the puzzle of his missing family. Unwittingly embroiled in a Government conspiracy with agents from all sides hot on his tail, an unrelenting chase across the streets of Madrid intensifies and Will is forced to question everything he has ever known in order to stay alive long enough to rescue his family… but is there anyone left he can trust? Starring Henry Cavill (Immortals, Man of Steel) alongside Hollywood action legends Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver, ‘The Cold Light of Day’ is an adrenaline fuelled action thriller from director Mabrouk El Mechri. The film is released September 7th in the US, while it sees its Blu-Ray and DVD release in the UK on September 10th.

You filmed ‘The Cold Light of Day’ just after ‘Immortals,’ a film you trained extensively for to get your characters physique and fighting abilities on point. With this, you’re playing an average man, with no particular skills. What was the experience like preparing for this role?

Henry Cavill: The preparation for this role was different, indeed (laughs). I came off ‘Immortals’ where I had to be super fit, and sort of the killer of men. This one was quite the opposite because I was told that I wasn’t allowed to do a single push-up or sit-up, I had to eat and drink as much as possible and be as average and normal as I possibly could be – within the short space of preparation time given, because ‘The Cold Light of Day’ was literally filmed off the back of ‘Immortals.’ The idea of the preparation was: be less competent and walk with less balance. For example, in a high stress situation, Theseus was very much someone who would react perfectly. In ‘The Cold Light of Day,’ Will doesn’t act that way at all (laughs). He runs or he fires blindly and tries to survive. The preparation was different. It was difficult to do prep for that. You kind of have to just feel it in the moment and run with it. But the most difficult thing was I suppose getting out of shape, it was trying to be as out of shape as possible so that it’s more believable in the story. Continue Reading
