Henry Cavill was always interested in Ancient History, and considered joining the army and serving the British nation, but life gave him a chance to play in movies. In school years Cavill studied drama and got his first professional role in 2002 – he played Monte Cristo in “The Count of Monte Cristo” when he was 18 years old. Since then Henry has appeared in many notable movies such as “Immortals”, “Hellraiser: Hellworld”, “Red Riding Hood”, “Tristan & Isolde” and “Whatever Works” where he played Randy Lee James. Although his career as an actor could seem amazing to many people, not many viewers know Henry’s resume as an actor could be very different if he hadn’t lost some notable roles to other celebrities. For example, Henry Cavill was one of two final candidates to play James Bond in “Casino Royale”, but finally lost to Daniel Craig – producers preferred Bond to be older. But after announcing final actor to play agent 007, Cavill didn’t give up and has indicated he would be interested in trying one more time in taking this role after Daniel Craig‘s contract is finished. One more misfortune was losing the Bruce Wayne role in the movie “Batman Begins”.
