The British actor, who is best known for his portrayal of the DC Comics character in the DC Extended Universe, has stated that he owes his current good mental health to his dog.
Cavill made an appearance on the British talk show “Lorraine” on Monday alongside his dog Kal to promote the upcoming season 2 premiere of his Netflix show “The Witcher,” which is scheduled to take place on December 17. The topic of his canine companion, Kal, came up relatively quickly, and he shared with the host, Lorraine Kelly, just how significant Kal was to him.
The famous actor is very active on Instagram, where he has 17.7 million followers, and he frequently posts photos of his well-groomed American Akita.
While stroking Kal, the man, who was 38 years old, confided in Kelly that he was, in fact, his best friend. “Together, we travel to all of the locations. Now 8 years old, he has on numerous occasions been the emotional and psychological savior I needed.”
Cavill referred to their relationship as being “extremely intimate.”
Cavill, whose acting credits also include “Enola Holmes,” “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” and “Immortals,” revealed during the interview that he keeps his Superman suit in his wardrobe and that he is “ready and waiting for the phone call” to reprise the role of Superman. His other acting credits include “Enola Holmes,” “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” and “Immortals.”
Cavill made his debut as Superman in the film “Man of Steel,” which was released in 2013, and went on to play the role in subsequent DC films such as “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Zack Snyder’s Justice League.”
When asked about his performance as the character, he said: “When you reflect on the past, all you can think is, “what a fantastic opportunity!” And even if I were to stop acting tomorrow and go live on a yacht or boat somewhere, a sailing boat, and just travel the Mediterranean, I would still be able to look back and say that I have donned a cape, leaped about the place, and entertained some people.”
