24 Aug Henry Cavill in Jersey

Category: New Photo & Video Discussion:

Today Henry Cavill attended a Jersey rugby game and took some pictures with rugby players, fans, and Jersey journalists. BBC Radio's Kevin Pamplin asked Henry a couple of questions about Ben Affleck as Batman in Man of Steel sequel and being home on Jersey, and here's what Henry had to say.

Henry is "more than excited" working with Ben Affleck the new Batman: "He is such a great actor. I'm so very excited about working with him. He is going to have such a presence. I can't wait."

Henry on being home: "I feel good its been such a great year happy to be home and all with that comes next."


Jersey Evening Post also wrote about Henry's appearance in Jersey:

"SUPERMAN was spotted at a number of different locations over the bank holiday weekend after returning to Jersey for a flying visit.

"Henry Cavill, who recently starred in the blockbuster film Man of Steel, posed for photographs with star-struck Islanders in nightclubs on Friday night and also took a coach into town with a visiting Premiership rugby squad on Saturday evening.

"Former St Michael’s School pupil Cavill, who brought fellow A-listers Russell Crowe and Amy Adams to the Jersey premiere of Man of Steel at the Waterfront in June, was at the Rugby Club for Jersey’s first match of the season on Saturday."

Here's a video from the Jersey Rugby club manager Sean Dunne with the players from Leicester Tigers Rugby club: "Just how I roll on a Saturday night with Superman and Leicester tigers good times."

UPD: Now we know a backstage story — Aaron Penberthy, one of the players, reveals:

“It was weird. There was a big crowd at the top of the clubhouse and none of us knew what it was all about”, Penberthy told The Rugby Paper.

“It turned out Henry Cavill was up there and I had no idea he was a Jersey boy. It was all good fun and a lot of us had our pictures taken.

“He partied with the Leicester team afterwards and said that if any of their lads could beat him to 50 press-ups, they could use his limousine.

“Tom Croft promptly beat him and got his driver to take him into town. Henry had a good time with us but might not fancy doing that again!”
