Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill (born 5 May 1983) is a British actor.

Cavill was born in Jersey and was educated at St. Michael's Preparatory School on the Island, before attending Stowe School, a boarding school, where he acted in many plays.

Cavill's film appearances include 2002's "The Count of Monte Cristo", " I Capture the Castle" (2003), "Red Riding Hood" (2004), "" in (2005), and the 2006 film version of "Tristan & Isolde".

Cavill auditioned for the lead role in "Batman Begins" but lost out to Christian Bale. In 2005, he became a young contender for the role of James Bond, and performed in a final screentest. The producers and director were torn between Cavill, Daniel Craig, and Sam Worthington. Apparently the director favoured Henry Cavill as a younger version of James Bond, roving about the parlors in "Casino Royale". However, the producers believed Cavill was too young for the role, which then went to Daniel Craig.

In the December 2005 edition of Empire Magazine, he was dubbed "...the most unlucky man in Hollywood".

Cavill then landed a leading role in the Showtime series "The Tudors" (2007) playing the historical character of Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, brother-in-law to Henry VIII of England and enemy of Queen Anne Boleyn. He also landed a minor part in the fantasy film "Stardust" (2007). In 2007 he was featured in Vanity Fair's "Hollywood's Next-Gen Men" article.

In early 2008, Cavill was featured Dunhill fragrance advertising. The television ad features a suited up Cavill walking through the Union Jack flag, before mounting a helicopter.
