Henry for Prestige Hong Kong

written by Jasper II.VIII

We are on a roll! Henry is featured in this month’s issue of Prestige magazine, and it is such another gorgeous shoot. Check out the cover and some outtakes in our gallery!

Henry Cavill is a gentleman. It’s in his actions, his diction, his dress sense and the fact that he’s unfailingly polite. When he arrives at our top-secret photo shoot location, he’s wearing a Royal Marines Charity hoodie, blue jeans and smart brown shoes – and, until now, I’ve never seen anyone look so dapper in jeans and a sweatshirt. Cavill also holds the door open for me on two occasions. It’s the small gestures that add up. This 35-year-old British actor has accomplished a lot, but still remains humble in what’s known to be a fickle industry.

“What is it like being considered a sex symbol?” He’s a bit surprised by the question and responds by saying, “Oh, God. Am I? I don’t know if I’m considered a sex symbol. ‘I don’t know’ is the answer to that question. I think, I mean, cool? If that’s the case, yay? My brothers will have a good laugh about that.” 

Cavill has starred in a string of box office hits including his performance as Napoleon Solo in the action spy comedy The Man from U.N.C.L.E., not to mention him suiting up for the role of Clark Kent/Superman in three DC films. This summer, we’ll also catch him on the big screen in Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Off-screen, Cavill’s schedule is hectic. Besides co-founding the film, TV and events company Promethean Productions with his brothers Charlie and Ben Blankenship, Cavill is actively involved in charity work as an ambassador for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and The Royal Marines Charity, a British organisation that provides support to serving marines, veterans and their families.

Cavill was born in Jersey in the Channel Islands, where the beach was just a 15-minute walk from the family home. The second-youngest of five boys, his career began when he bagged the role of Albert Mondego in the 2002 adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ The Count of Monte Cristo. Back then, he was just a lad at England’s Stowe School and it was uncertain whether he’d pursue a full-time acting career. But by the time the movie had wrapped, Cavill had two agents, one in the UK and one in the US. 

Starring as the most famous comic-book character in not one but three blockbuster films, Cavill was the lead in Man of SteelBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League (the first two are the highest-grossing Superman films of all time). As it turns out, “Supes,” as he affectionately calls him, was also the young Cavill’s favourite superhero.

Men’s Journal (August 2018) Scans

written by Jasper XIX.VII

Henry is on the cover of next month’s issue of Men’s Journal magazine. He brought along his best friend, Kal, on this gorgeous shoot filmed on location in Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park. Check out a behind-the-scenes video below, and screencaps and high-quality scans in our gallery!

Henry Cavill for Square Mile

written by Jasper X.VII

Henry has blessed us with another gorgeous photo shoot as he graces the cover of this month’s issue of Square Mile magazine! He discussed a lot in this interview, including the much-awaited Mission: Impossible – Fallout, being Superman, some of his earlier projects, and much more. Check out the two covers and some outtakes in our gallery.

Cavill is bigger: north of 6ft, and with a build to make a wardrobe search for the nearest brick shithouse to cower behind. Your grandmother would describe him as a “strapping young fellow”, while your wife quietly slips her wedding ring into the nearest drawer. Never has a man looked quite so obviously Leading.

A cinematic star needs a cinematic setting – so we recruited the Shangri La penthouse at the Shard, and thus half of London sprawled out beyond gigantic panes of glass. We have gathered on the X floor of Europe’s tallest building to discuss Cavill’s role in Mission: Impossible – Fallout; or rather the little that Cavill can discuss about his role in Mission: Impossible – Fallout.

Refreshingly for a modern blockbuster – where spoilers are tossed into the first trailer, and the plot can be deciphered a month before general release – very little is known about the sixth installment of the M:I franchise. Naturally, it stars Tom Cruise as daredevil superspy Ethan Hunt, naturally there is a countdown to an imminent global catastrophe, and naturally a lot of vehicles will blow up.

Cavill is the headline addition to an ensemble cast that includes returning M:I alumni Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan, and Ving Rhames – a veteran of the very first installment way back in 1996. (Cavill was 13.) Our man plays “primary antagonist” August Walker – a thrusting CIA agent whose methods clash with Hunt’s inexhaustible heroism. (Hunt can’t be much chill, although neither is Walker by the sound of things.)

“I’m forced upon Ethan’s team by the director of the CIA. August Walker is a sledgehammer to Ethan’s scalpel. He will get the job done no matter what. His MO is so different to Ethan’s that naturally they don’t get along at all. Walker has no problem with collateral damage,” notes Cavill with a certain fondness. “He’s fine with it.”

Which is fortunate, as the trailer promises plenty of collateral will be duly damaged. Including the leading man: Tom Cruise broke his ankle chasing Cavill across the rooftops of London. (Fortunately for on-set harmony, the men were filming at the time.) Cruise, the utter pro, finished the take, but production was halted for several weeks.

Cavill spent the hiatus developing the character of Walker – and enjoying a little downtime. Every cloud… “I didn’t break my ankle, so I got a holiday and my character got better!” he says cheerily. “Wasn’t even a cloud: just silver lining!”

After such a mishap, it might seem prudent to tackle the dialogue scenes and retire to the trailer for the heavy stuff. Cavill is made of sterner stuff, and insisted on performing the vast majority of his own stunts. (He can’t share much details about the lone outlier, except to warn: “If you have two actors involved in that stunt, it increases the risk tenfold. And when we’re talking about that kind of stunt, if the risk goes up just a little bit, people die.”)
