There are numerous prominent personalities whom I admire but the person I’m most captivated by is Henry Cavill. He is a Hollywood actor who gained critical acclaim for his diverse movie choices and talent. I am a movie lover and regularly watch action packed superhero films. Superman is one of my favourite superheroes and I have watched all the Superman movie instalments released so far. In 2012, a movie called Man of Steel was released in which Henry played Clark Kent alias Superman in that movie and I have revered him ever since. 

Henry was a regular teenager like many others with a family of seven. He had played soccer in his high school days and even went on to state championships along with his team. Being a nice kid, he was often bullied in school because of his weight issues. He started trying out acting at a very young age and it took him years to bag an acting role that pulled out his skills thereby making him famous in the film industry as well as around the world.

He first gained recognition for his portrayal of a supporting role in a series called The Tudors, a historical show set in ancient England. He later amassed global praise for his notable performance in Man of Steel and spy movies like The Man from UNCLE and Mission Impossible.

I commend his acting skills along with the knowledge he carries about each of the character he plays. Besides, he plays video games and is a computer geek which makes him more relatable. In addition, he participates in events for charitable causes and a member of Durrell, a wildlife conservation trust. These activities coupled with his acting have made me his fan.
