Henry Cavill World of Warcraft

Negli ultimi anni abbiamo imparato a conoscere sempre di più Henry Cavill che dopo aver interpretato l’uomo d’Acciaio per Warner Bros. si è munito di spada e cavallo per affrontare mostri nella serie tv Netflix, The Witcher.

Cavill, che non ha mai nascosto le sue passioni nerd legate ai giochi di ruolo, ai fumetti ed ai videogames, ha raccontato in un’intervista a fine 2019 di come quasi perse il ruolo di Superman per colpa di queste sue passioni.

Come si può sentire al minuto 1:11 del video sottostante l’attore all’epoca ignorò totalmente la chiamata di Zack Snyder per il ruolo di Superman perché era intento a giocare a World of Warcraft, lasciando squillare il telefono per non distrarsi molto probabilmente da un Raid in corso.

Fortunatamente l’attore ha poi ripreso in mano il telefono e richiamato il regista ma non prima di aver concluso la sa sessione di gioco.

Cavill qualche giorno fa ha inoltre rivelato un’altra delle sue grandi passioni nerd legate alle miniature con un post su instagram. L’attore sta infatti passando questi giorni di quarantena a dipingere miniature ed a scrivere.

Considering we are, both, going through the Easter period, and going through The Lockdown, I figured it a good time to put a silver lining onto the cloud that is some of the darker moments during this time. So I've decided to polish some old skills and try my hand at some new ones! It is a time of rebirth after all. So, as you can see here, the obvious might look a little bit like a tiny helmet…which it is. One of my almost life long hobbies, that I've been following but not actively doing, is this. A company called Games Workshop…or plastic crack as "we" call it. Genuinely can't get enough of the lore they have built over the decades. They have been some of my most enthused reads! If you were in denial about me being a geek before, you can't hide from it now. Also, in the background of this photo, there may just be some completely new skills I'm working on…..or there may not be, so all of your eye squinting and attempts at digital unfocusing will be in vain….orrrr maybe they won't. I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank, from the bottom of my heart, all of the NHS (National Health Service, here in the UK) and healthcare workers worldwide, for your unceasing efforts to protect us. I imagine it might be feeling a little rough right now, but you Ladies and Gents are absolutely smashing it! Keep it up! You got this. "Hold on a second", I hear you utter….."if he has both hands in the photo…how is he taking the photo??" New skills, my friends….new skills. #Easter #Passover #GamesWorkshop #ProperGeek #Custodes #NewSkills #NHS #ThankYou #Raggy?
