In 2005, when the protagonist of Immortals was right in the final choice for the role of James Bond in Royal Casino, Apparently, the producers and the director did not agree between choosing Henry Cavill or Daniel Craig. Now we know who they decided on.

I could have prepared better. I remember Martin Campbell, the director, saying to me, ‘Henry, you look a bit chubby.’

I didn’t know how to train or diet. I’m glad he told me, I took it very well and it helped me improve. I wasn’t exactly thrilled not to get the part, but I was used to being disappointed, so it was nothing new to me.
