A couple of fans devoted to seeing their favorite actor, the currently little-known Henry Cavill, have created a small and informative website soliciting letters to support their position to enlist him in the movie Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Cedric Diggory.
Tasha, along with help from Rachel and Gillian, constructed this website (Loyal and True: Henry [Cavill] for Cedric Diggory) solely to elect this slowly rising talent to a role that any actor in such a position would dream of.
The fans penned their own exposition detailing their favor for Cavill as Diggory:
Cedric Diggory, though briefly introduced in the third Harry Potter book, became a well-known and important character in the fourth. A genuine Hufflepuff, he is dear to the hearts of many Harry Potter fans, and it is imperative that the perfect Cedric Diggory is selected for the movie adaptation of "Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire."
In our opinion, Henry Cavill is the ideal Cedric Diggory.
First, there is the physical description to consider, and Henry fits that very well. Henry is tall, has the strong facial features, the brown hair, and the light eyes. This is easy to see, even by looking at photos of Henry. One could describe Cedric, and practically be describing Henry at the same time.
In this editor's opinion, this would be an excellent venture to pursue. Fresh talent would be excellent for any role, including this one. Huge production budgets and top-draw stars should not prohibit less well-known actors and actresses from joining any cast. Too often and unfortunately, the same happens.
