Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Blessed with the same rakish British charisma that made Americans swoon over Jude Law and Robert Pattinson, Henry Cavill made a dent in the international hunk-consciousness with his portrayal of the Duke of Suffolk on Showtime's Henry VIII-based series, "The Tudors" (2007-2010). Cavill was by then accustomed to period dress, due to his previous noted performances in historic features such as "The Count of Monte Cristo" (2002) and "Tristan and Isolde" (2006). Even as he gained notice for his work in "The Tudors," director Woody Allen helped the actor expand beyond his 16th-century limits and into the modern-day world with a small role in the contemporary comedy "Whatever Works" (2009). However, when he was suddenly announced as film's next Clark Kent in the latest iteration of Superman in 2011, it became clear that Hollywood had indeed deemed him a leading man in the making, with Cavill finally making his Kryptonian debut in 2013's "Man of Steel."
