SavageTechman (Ed) interviews Tai from HenryCavill.org, "the #1 site on the web for the British actor". Together we discuss all things Man Of Steel, coming to theaters June 14th! Our discussion includes talk of the Smallville influence, the new Superman suit, rumors of a Justice League movie, how this Superman is given a more "realistic" approach by Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder, things you are familiar with that will NOT be a part of this Superman/Clark Kent, and much more. Listen here:
Sylvia Day is an international bestselling author. She has topped the New York Times best sellers list. Her books have been translated into thirty nine languages. They have also taken the #1 spot in eleven countries. Last year, her two novels, Bared to You and Reflected in You were among the top ten bestselling books of 2012 on both Amazon and iTunes.
Elan Goldstein is an extra in the upcoming Man of Steel film. He generously agreed to tell us about his experiences on set with the cast and crew and to give us a little insight into what it was like to work with Henry Cavill. Elan has had minor roles in television shows like Bones, House, M.D., and Criminal Minds. He also directed and starred in a short iPhone film in 2012 called Changewith his wife Lauren and friend Rob Kolinsky. His mother is a huge Henry fan and we are grateful to her for connecting us with Elan.
In the Discovery Channel UK's new series, Driven to Extremes, Henry Cavill, star of the new Superman film Man of Steel, and world superbike champion, Neil Hodgson, take on the Taklamakan Desert, northwestern China. Summer temperatures are a staggering 50 degrees Celsius. The duo must cross 470 miles of the largest shifting sand desert in the world, from Hami to Urumqi, where water is as scarce as life. Aldo accompanied Henry and Neil and the crew as a survival expert.
One of the things I love about Twitter is the discovery of fabulous authors and their new books. A few months ago, I noticed a lot of chatter about the author Alice Clayton and her book Wallbanger. After following Alice for a week or so, I knew with her fabulous quick wit and sense of adventure, I had to buy her book. I read it in two days and I found myself either laughing or swooning as I poured through the pages. The main character, Simon immediately made me think of Henry Cavill. Charming, tall, dark hair, adventurous and handsome…
Alice was recently signed with Simon & Schuster and will be releasing Wallbanger and the Red Head series through their publishing house. I interviewed her about her writing, her inspiration, and of course… Henry Cavill.
Twitter is a great place to discover interesting and wise people, but it’s also a fabulous place to find funny people. Debra Anastasia is all three. I started following her on Twitter, when someone retweeted her hilarious tweet and I had to read more. Months after I started following her, I downloaded her book, Poughkeepsie. Few books have touched my heart the way this book did. I wasn’t sure what I’d think of the main character, Blake being homeless, but one chapter into it, he had won my heart.
After I read Poughkeepsie, I decided I’d try her Seraphim Books — Crushed Seraphim followed by Bittersweet Seraphim. It was the first time I’d read a book about a fallen angel and her complicated relationship with the devil and other out of this world characters. As I read the book, I couldn’t help, but have a huge crush on the hot, sexy, evil devil Jack. The description of Jack made me think of Henry Cavill with his dark wavy hair, chiseled face and broad, muscular structure. When we decided to start doing interviews with authors who’ve written books with male leads that remind us of Henry, I knew Debra would be at the top of my list.
The art community has given us some wonderful illustrations of Superman (as portrayed by Henry Cavill) over the past few weeks. You can see several examples of this fan art on our Facebook page. Joey Romero, better known as “Average Joe Art”, came onto our radar screen a few weeks ago, when he tweeted a stunning illustration of Henry Cavill as Superman based on the cover photo from Empire Magazine. We recently talked to him about his art, comic books and most importantly, Henry Cavill and the Man of Steel movie.
A couple of years ago, a friend of mine who knew I was looking for something fun and erotic to read, recommended a fan fiction called, ‘The Office’. It captivated me from the first chapter. I’d stay up half the night desperate to find out how the romance of the two main characters would play out. The exciting news is that story is now out in print as the Beautiful Bastard.
Two years ago, a good friend of mine introduced me to the novel, Gabriel’s Inferno. It was originally written as a fan fiction, but it has since been updated and published. The book is set at the university in Toronto. The love affair between the brilliant, handsome, yet dark Professor Gabriel Emerson and his sweet, innocent student, Julia Mitchell held my attention from beginning to end. I finished reading the novel on a plane headed to Toronto. During my visit there, we had fun doing the Gabriel’s Inferno tour to see all the different sites. The sequel to Gabriel’s Inferno is Gabriel's Rapture, an equally compelling and captivating story. Its author is now hard at work on continuing the story of Julia and the handsome Professor. We recently caught up with the charming author, Sylvain Reynard and gained insight into both his writing process and his novels.
*This interview by Jen Freligh originally appeared on Pattinson Post on October 12, 2011 here. Author E.L. James was doing a blog tour promoting the second book in the series, Fifty Shades Darker.
It’s no secret that I not only enjoy E.L. James writing, but have great respect and admiration for her as well. I was thrilled to be a part of the Fifty Shades Tribute in May when we celebrated the news that her book would be published. I was equally excited to have the opportunity to interview her and to also be able to share questions from some of our followers. You’ll see their questions with their twitter names after the question.
If you haven’t yet, read the “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Fifty Shades Darker” – I urge you to do so. The ongoing story of Christian and Anastasia’s relationship and all of its complexities will hold you spellbound until the last sentence and then, will leave you yearning for the next books release.
What follows is my interview with E.L. James where she answers our questions and some fan questions taken from Twitter.
