Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill, better known by his shortened name Henry Cavill, rose to prominence with the role of Superman/Clark Kent in Warner Bros.' superhero movie, "Man of Steel" (2013), which was based on the DC Comics' character of the same name.

The British actor became the face of the iconic superhero after being cast in "Man of Steel" and reprised the role once again in 2016's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Cavill is all set to play Superman in next year's "Justice League Part One" as well.

Besides playing Superman, Cavill's other prominent roles include the characters of Charles Brandon in the TV series, "The Tudors," and Armie Hammer in the 2015 movie, "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."

As the actor celebrates his 33rd birthday, here are some of the most inspiring quotes by him on his successful career.

"Some people thrive under pressure, but pressure can also ruin your performance, it can push you down angles which you don't want to go."

"I never thought of myself as unlucky. When you aim high, it's tough to get there unless something really fortunate happens."

"This character matters so much to so many people. I want to get that right. I want to do it justice. I want people to believe in the character and have faith in the character and kids to grow up wanting to be Superman. Or, God forbid, there's people who are going through hardship and wishing that this character would turn up and save them."

"As an outside; don't worry about failure, because failure will take care of itself. Focus on success."

"Regrets are something you can't really have as an actor, because ultimately you'll end up destroying yourself... there's a lot of disappointment in this business."

"You can train and train until you are blue in the face, but you've got to diet, you've got to have that leanness because if you are not lean, your abs won't show. Of course, the training has to be put in, but then you've to shed all the fat and keep the fat off. And that's how you get an eight pack."
