Henry Cavill has made waves in cinema over the last decade, not least because of his turn and the controversy surrounding his role as Superman in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and the ill-fated Justice League.
He has shown that he has extreme dedication when it comes to roles, evident in his muscular physique but also, when examined more closely, in the research that he puts into his roles. He is not simply the beefcake to end all beefcakes - he is in fact a talented actor.
Rising to prominence in Showtime's The Tudors, he starred in that role for three years before really making his entrance to cinema. He would bounce around in a couple of starring roles before landing Superman, which would propel him into the stratosphere.
Ever the gentleman, in many interviews he displays a genial persona, very open to discussing the work he has done on his films but also the work of the other members of the team. He credits directors and writers for what they bring, rather than allowing interviewers to simply laud his own skills.
While he might be most well known for the work he has committed to bodybuilding for his many physical roles, Cavill has demonstrated a wide range of skills, best shown in the films on this list.
