Mister Cavill, Last summer you made headlines with “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”, not least thanks to your mustache. Do you miss that sometimes?
The mustache had its time. Maybe it will be the day of his return, but it will take a while.
There were enthusiastic responses to the look on the internet. Or are you not following what’s written on and about you on the net?
I make an effort to read the comments below my posts. I also study fan and movie pages to see how the mood is there. I try to get a sense of how my work is perceived, at the same time I do not want to attach too much importance to online commentary.
Her career began 18 years ago. At that time, they worked in bars and nightclubs in England to afford the auditioning auditions in Los Angeles. How present are these times still in your head?
That feels very far away. But it’s not like I’ll ever forget those years. I really appreciate where I stand today and I’m still working hard. Only that the hard work has changed a bit.
At that time, were you sure that you would succeed in the breakthrough? Or were there phases of doubt?
At the time, I was driven by a mixture of belief in myself and the sense of reality. I had forbidden myself to make too many thoughts of failure. At the same time, however, I have repeatedly questioned whether I’m really happy with acting. As a young actor, you really do not have it easy: you need a name to get the big parts, but to make a name for yourself, you need big parts … There have been many moments in which I’ve thought of that To hang up a film career and go to the military. That was my plan B.
