Frida Gustavsson Shares About Her Admiration For Henry Cavill

Frida in her recent interview, however, shared that Henry helped her in understanding the approach of leading a show.
“The thing that I think I take away from it the most is working with Henry Cavill. He taught me so much about how a #1 should behave. Even though I came in, I have only like two little scenes with him, it was incredible to see a star of that magnitude for me coming in and being this random Swedish actress, the way that he was so collaborative.”
About her experience of working with him, she expressed, “He was very, very sweet about, ‘Would you mind if I changed this line? Did you want to run the scenes together?’ Make sure that everyone on the set’s comfortable, making sure that everyone knows his name, that he knows their names.”
Furthermore, she added, “I think that was really eyeopening for me because coming from Sweden, you hear so many stories about, ‘Oh, all of these Hollywood actors and they’re just in their trailers with their massage therapists and they’re so horrible,’ and then to meet this man who is like, not only the most talented and gorgeous man, but just such a lovely person, that was a big inspiration for me and I hope that I can bring those qualities to set and make sure that everyone who works on my sets feels seen, feel like they’re a creative partner.”
