Henry Cavill has said that he was "flattered" to be called the ideal choice to play Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga.
Author Stephenie Meyer originally named the former Tudors star as her top pick to play the vampire in the film adaptation of her bestselling novels. While the role ultimately went to Robert Pattinson, Cavill revealed that he still appreciated that Meyer thought of him.
He continued: "If a writer were to say that I am the writer's ideal choice, that's enormously flattering. I hope that I will be able to continue to perform in a way that will have other people saying it."
