HENRY CAVILL ACED THE ROLE OF AUGUST WALKER
In 2018, ‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’ featured the return of the original trio Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt, Simon Pegg as Benji, and Ving Rhames as Luther. They go on a mission of stopping the suspicious activities of the terrorist group, The Apostles, that developed three years after the remains of terrorist Solomon Lane’s (Sean Harris) organization, The Syndicate. During the mission, Hunt, Pegg and Rhames get stuck with an agent of CIA’s Special Activities Operative, August Walker (Henry Cavill).
Henry Cavill seemed like the perfect fit next to the original cast. Before filming for ‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’ in 2017, he had already made a name for himself by starring in movies like ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’, ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ and ‘Man of Steel’. His acting abilities had led him to star next to ‘Mission: Impossible’ star Tom Cruise. Cavill’s performance as the shady double agent was beyond perfect. However, ‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’ was majorly about seeing Henry Cavill and Tom Cruise together. It saw a different generation of actors play their character with conviction and a different approach. Tom Cruise was busy running on top of London rooftops or speeding through Parisian streets on a bike. Cavill was significantly calm while handling any task. It was exciting for fans to see them battle it out both as a team and as enemies.
