Henry: (About which three wishes he would like to see fulfilled): For my family to be fully content and happy with life… to have a wonderful marriage and to be happy and successful myself.
Henry: (About the most challenging thing he’s ever done): Climb the side of a small mountain in Nepal… because I was in a competitive mood and had to beat the guides to the top. Almost killed me.
Henry: (About his most embarrassing moment): I was running to get to an audition when i first starting acting and when crossing the road with traffic stopped everywhere I slipped in this huge puddle of black water and got soaked and my papers went everywhere while holding up traffic and being pointed and laughed at.
Henry: (About his role in Matthew Vaughn’s Stardust): My character is unpleasant. He has floppy hair and a moustache and is so arrogant it borders on ridiculous.
Henry: (About how he got the role of Albert Mondego in The Count of Monte Cristo): They were looking for a boarding school boy and luckily, I happened to look right for the part and I had a bit of acting experience, and that’s were it all kind of kicked off.
Henry: (About the sex scene with Gabrielle Anwar in The Tudors) It was the most graphic sex scene I have ever done. I was fully naked with my back to the camera, bum and everything, although we did wear modesty pouches.
Henry: (About Dublin) I love Dublin. I lived here for awhile when we were shooting, so I know it fairly well.
Henry: (About the curiosity his private life arises between his fans) They want to see what the person behind the character is like, and I’m guilty of that too, but it’s important to retain a sense of normality. The actor’s job is to do his job. But that’s difficult, especially with the celebrity attached to acting these days.
Henry: (About whom keeps him grounded) I have four brothers, three of whom are much older that I am. They would kick my ass if I got too involved in the glitz and the glamour.
Henry: (About acting) In prep school, I really learned to love the stage. When you step out from the wings and into the lights, there’s this incredible rush of adrenaline and fear and anticipation; it’s just something else, it really is.
Henry: I’ve traveled enough on planes to realize it’s not about how you look – it’s about how you feel.
Henry (On the roles that he plays): I’m Henry in real life, I’m Dunhill Guy for Dunhill Fragrance things, and I’m Charles Brandon on The Tudors. But Henry is the most important of the three, and sometimes he likes to get dressed up and sometimes he doesn’t.
Henry: (On Charles Brandon’s womanizing ways) He really can’t keep his d*** in his pants!
Henry: It’s fun to keep things normal. You’ve gotta do stuff in your free time, otherwise you just get bored.
Henry: I’m not really into fancying people.
Henry: (When asked how he deals with his fame) My fame? Truly I don’t consider myself famous…long way to go yet. But if anyone does ask for an autograph it’s a wonderful feeling…
