Henry Cavill showed up for a photoshoot to promote his latest film, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and was surprised not only the photographer, but all the female staffers who waved their day off.
The British actor is working hard in promoting the 1960s remake, which is set to open in theaters in August. During a visit to Devon International Airport in England last week, he took the time to participate in the promo campaign. The 31-year-old was in nearby Exter Airport doing some more PR stuff with Shortlist magazine, according to Western Morning News.
The publication contacted private flight operator Capital Air Charter — based at Exeter Airport and owned by the Rigby Group — for use of one of its executive private planes. When Henry Cavill showed up, even the managing director, Malcolm Humphries, was surprised, as he had been told a male model, not an A-lister was going to be used for the shoot.
“Then they called back to say they had been lucky enough to have Henry Cavill for the shoot. I said ‘OK’ and if I’m honest I had never heard of him, so I Googled him and thought ‘Oh My Godness’. A lot of the girls in the office who weren’t due to work said they would come in anyway for some reason.”
“He was a really nice chap, so lovely and really kind to all the staff here.”
“We have been asked to do photo shoots before for magazines and videos but really didn’t expect anything like this.”
“There was a photoshoot of Henry with all the staff but unfortunately one of our staff members in accounts missed it. She was so upset so we are trying to organize a signed picture for her.”
This is not the first time Henry Cavill has been praised for his kindness to those he meets along the way. The action star is said to have been training in nearby Dartmoor for a new role, which we speculate is that of Stratton: First Into Action, an adaptation based on the Duncan Falconer series, about a Royal Marine inspired on himself.
Falconer had similar words about meeting Henry Cavill for the first time to discuss the Stratton film, which is being produced by the actor’s newly formed production company. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Falconer revealed on his Facebook page that Cavill was set to begin his training and shared some details about their meeting.
“I met Henry for a beer a few days ago, our first meeting. I’m a no BS kind of person, as you might suppose, and I have to say, and I’m relieved to say, he is a first rate bloke.”
As seen on the photos shared on Twitter, Shortlist magazine hired a Rolls Royce for Henry Cavill’s photoshoot and everyone spent most of the day at the airport.
