Henry Cavill enjoys a special spotlight amongst fans and general audiences who have supported him time and again. From being an enormously talented presence to embodying some of the most challenging, pressure-inducing, iconic roles — the man keeps winning everyone’s hearts continuously. However, what intrigues people the most is how the Man of Steel actor, irrespective of his stature, remains grounded in his interests, which often encompass several nerdy hobbies.
Back in 2020, the DCEU alum was seen building a gaming PC. To say the video went viral would be underselling it. The actor has also, on countless occasions, made his love for video games very evident. He has even said in multiple interviews that his favorite hobby is indeed gaming. In a recent interview, the Justice League talent confessed that he’s planning to upgrade the PC he had built two years back.
Enola Holmes Star Henry Cavill Is Upgrading His Gaming PC
While talking to Collider about his upcoming endeavor, Enola Holmes 2, Cavill was asked whether or not the “gaming rig” or the desktop that he custom-built in 2020 was still working. To this, The Witcher alum enthusiastically responded, “Absolutely it is!” Attesting to the quality of his PC, the actor stated that the rig is performing so excellently that he feels hesitant to upgrade it with the newer parts that are coming up in the market.
Nevertheless, he’s still waiting for the latest upgrades to come out so he can start rebuilding and refurbishing his gaming PC.
Following is what Henry Cavill had to say:
“I’m waiting for the new CPUs to come out from a company which I won’t name just yet. And also, the new GPUs which have just come out which everyone’s talking about anyway, so I’m pretty sure you know which ones those are.”
He then finishes his statement by alluding to how difficult it is to proceed with an upgradation, especially when certain parts of the PC are “not easy to find.” The Enola Holmes star hopes to soon get his hands on the latest upgrades.
The interviewer humorously suggested that the renowned actor should call the uber-popular software company Nvidia, asking them for the newer portions in return for Henry Cavill doing an Instagram ad for them. Cavill agreed and said that he could indeed do that. Perhaps, the Mission: Impossible – Fallout star is much closer to re-customizing his PC than he thinks.
Henry Cavill And His Love For Video Games
As mentioned earlier, Henry Cavill is known for his love of video games. In his viral 2020 PC-building video, fans were impressed to see how meticulously the actor was able to customize his gaming rig. Although it took hours — understandably so, as putting together a PC requires a lot of attention and patience — the DCEU star was able to do it flawlessly. He was nothing less than Superman in this regard.
Cavill had once also revealed that he would much rather stay at home and play video games than go outside. To him, he prefers the medium to “escape” — which people usually can’t strive to do if they’re outside. In an older interview with GQ, the Night Hunter alum mentioned that he grew up playing games like Delta Force and Half-Life. In a separate interview, the Man of Steel star disclosed that he thoroughly enjoys playing World of Warcraft.
Interestingly enough, his love for gaming makes sense when you take into consideration that he is renowned for portraying Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher, a character from a renowned fantasy action role-playing game, sharing the same name as the series. What will not shock you is how Henry Cavill has also played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which he deemed quite a tough game to navigate through.
To say that the ever-so-accomplished actor is living the dream of thousands of gamers would be an understatement. If the DCEU star manages to obtain the upgraded parts for his gaming rig, we sure do hope the world can bare witness to another viral PC-building video.
As for now, fans of Henry Cavill can anticipate the release of Enola Holmes 2 which premieres on 28 October 2022 on Netflix.
