When Henry Cavill Met Patrick Stewart

When Henry Cavill Met Patrick Stewart

Superman Meets Picard

Patrick Stewart just chatted to Henry Cavill about the roles that changed their lives, Picard and Superman, to Variety

On “The Witcher,” Henry Cavill sheds Superman’s suit in favour of weighty armour and a blond wig to battle monsters as Geralt of Rivia, adapted from Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy books. The call to save humankind is nothing new for Patrick Stewart. In “Star Trek: Picard,” Stewart returns to the captain’s chair of the USS Enterprise; he first played Picard in 1987, when ”Star Trek: The Next Generation” launched. And years before Cavill became Superman on the big screen, he met his own hero — Stewart — on a theatre audition that he would never forget. They talked to each other over video chat for Variety‘s Actors on Actors issue.
