Henry Cavill Growing Up With Four Brothers

Henry Cavill has revealed that growing up with four brothers prepared him for his action films, due an abundance of ‘rough and tumble’.

The actor, 38, made the admission during Friday’s episode of The Graham Norton Show which saw him promote the return of the fantasy series The Witcher.

He brazenly said of siblings Niki, Charlie, Simon, and Piers: ‘Growing up was intense – we were living on the edge of survival most of the time.

‘To give you an example, my dad came home from work one day and asked my mother why the wallpaper had changed, and she simply said, “It is easier to clean the blood off this one!” There was a lot of rough and tumble!’

On his character’s lack of dialogue in the Netflix series, he said: ‘This time round he says a lot more and they have popped in some of my expletives from the last series.’

When asked if he is in the running to be the next James Bond, he admitted, ‘I would definitely have a conversation. From what I understand there are very early conversations happening at the top but there is no list as such.’

Elsewhere in the installment, Tom Holland and Zendaya were unable to give much away when it came to their new movie Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The London native said: ‘It’s tough to tell you much. Marvel and Sony have done such a good job of putting trailers together without giving anything away, but just enough to get everyone excited.

‘What’s cool about the film is that it picks up right after the end of the second one and for the first time in Peter Parker’s history his identity has been revealed to the world. Everyone thinks he is a crazy villain, and it all goes horribly wrong for him.’

Zendaya, talking about figuring out the various timelines in the film, said, ‘It’s extremely confusing to work out what is going on.

‘There would be a lot of times when we had no idea. There were days when Tom and I would look at each other and say, “What on earth is this?”‘

Gugu Mbatha-Raw, talking about her new BBC series The Girl Before, revealed how being an executive producer for the first time had been ‘an incredible learning curve.

She said: ‘The interesting thing for me was being on the other side of it having auditioned for years has been an actor, and then being part of the casting process. It was so exciting and cool to be on that side of things.’

Little Mix performed their latest track, Between Us, live in the studio before spilling the beans about their recently announced break.

Jade said, ‘It’s been terribly emotional. We’ve still got the tour next year and a few other bits, but it’s been 10 incredible years and we always said if we’re going to take a little break it would be on an incredible high.

Leigh-Anne added, ‘It’s time to spread our wings a little bit and do our individual things.’
