Mini Biography

Henry Cavill grew up in Jersey, Channel Islands. Jersey is his home but he is currently, in his own words, "floating around the world." He has four brothers and a pet parrot.

Henry Cavill was a main actor at the boarding school he attended. The boarding school, Stowe School, is located in Buckingham. His roles include Oberon in a rendition of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream", and Sonny in "Grease". He also starred as Hamlet in "40 Minutes", which he also happens to have directed.

Henry Cavill starred in Dennis Berry's Laguna opposite Joe Mantegna. He enjoyed working in Laguna more than all his other movies because he played the lead and therefore developed a close relationship with the director.

Since then he has appeared in a couple of well-known movies such as The Count of Monte Cristo and I Capture the Castle. He also has a number of lesser-known movies, and television movies. He delivered a captivating performance as Chas Quilter in Inspector Lynley's Mysteries: Well-Schooled in Murder.

He has worked with the actor Bill Nighy twice, once in I Capture the Castle and also Well-Schooled in Murder. He has worked with the young actor Joe Sowerbutts three times, also in 'Capture', 'Well-Schooled' and briefly in Goodbye, Mr. Chips. He met Russell Crowe a long time ago in boarding school, and in 2013, got to work with him in Man of Steel.

Early Life

Cavill was born on the island of Jersey in the Channel Islands, the fourth of five boys. His mother, Marianne, works as a secretary in a bank, and his father, Colin, is a stockbroker.

He was educated at St. Michael's Preparatory School in Saint Saviour, Jersey before attending Stowe School, a boarding school in Buckinghamshire, England. He began acting in school plays during prep school, and has said that if he had not become an actor, he would have joined the army or gone to university to study ancient history, specifically Egyptology.

Personal Life

On 4 May 2011, his girlfriend, show jumper (equestrian) Ellen Whitaker, announced their engagement.
As of August 2012, Henry and Ellen have called off their engagement and split.

Cavill began dating American actress and former mixed martial artist Gina Carano in September 2012.

The other touchstone moment at boarding school involved Russell Crowe, who plays Cavill's father, Jor-El, in Man of Steel. "He was on campus filming Proof of Life," Cavill says. "Everyone was standing in a semicircle, and I thought, 'We look ridiculous, staring like he's some kind of prize pony.' So I walked up and said, 'Hi, my name is Henry. I'm thinking of becoming an actor. What's the acting world like?' He said something like, 'Sometimes it's great. Sometimes it's not so great. It's fun acting. And they pay well.' Then everyone ran up and asked for autographs, and I turned to Russell and said, 'Run.'" Several days later, Cavill received a package from Crowe containing snacks, a rugby jersey, and a CD of the actor's band. "There was also a signed note," Cavill says, picking up a fry. "It said, 'Dear Henry, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.'" On the set of Man of Steel, Cavill reminded Crowe of their meeting. "I told him, 'I was the fat one who didn't ask for your autograph.' He looked at me blankly, and then he actually remembered."
