Henry Cavill On Adopting An American Accent For Man Of Steel

Henry Cavill On Adopting An American Accent For <i>Man Of Steel</i>

The British actor speaks about training his voice to sound like the American raised Superman in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel, and the reactions to his new accent so far..

When Henry Cavill was cast as Superman there was a bit of a furor in certain fan circles that a character seen as an American icon would be played by a Brit. Most people didn't have an issue with this but one thing that may have been a concern was how Cavill would fare with the accent.



Well speaking to Total Film the young actor explains how he prepared his voice for it, and reveals the initial reactions of those that have heard it..

"Doing an American accent is about exercising the muscles in your throat and your mouth. Sometimes it can sound great for a long period of time, sometimes your inflection is wrong. It all depends. As long as you've got a professional watching over you saying, "You did this wrong, you did that wrong.." it can be made to seem effortless. But you still get days when it just seems to stick in your mouth."


So how does he rate his American accent now?

"I've been told I can be very good at it..but I know I've been very bad at it in the past!"


Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel is currently shooting in LA. Find out how authentic Cavill's accent is when the movie is released in 2013.
