Just saw that clip of Henry Cavill talking about Warhammer with Graham Norton. And on the one hand, it was all good fun bants. On the other, I was cringing at how derisive Norts was of Henry's hobby (in front of an audience), because I've had that same conversation 1000 times.

Weird approach by Graham Norton, given how Games Workshop is worth billions. Presumably monopoly and scrabble are deemed acceptable, but table top games must be laughed at? Either way, Henry Cavill is a legend. https://t.co/oeSSxbrm7W

Yeah, I got the same vibe, but highlight was Tom Holland’s,” It sounds amazing!!”. Now I’m imagining Cavill inviting him over to show off his stuff and give hime a demo.

Even though Norton decided to titter and "Toy soldiers" Cavill played it like a gentleman.
