Henry Cavill Reveals Tom Cruise Wouldn’t Allow Him To Do A ‘Mission: Impossible’ Stunt Because He Worried ‘You’ll Kill Everyone’

Henry Cavill was eager to join Tom Cruise in doing some daredevil stunts when he appeared alongside him in “Mission: Impossible — Fallout”, but Cruise refused to allow it — because he was worried that Cavill would “kill everyone.”

Cavill, 36, made the revelation while appearing on “The Graham Norton Show”, reports the Daily Mail.

“One stunt I really wanted to do was the high-altitude jump at the beginning of the film,” Cavill told host Graham Norton.

“I begged to do it, but Tom said, ‘We would love you to do it, but I am up there with the professionals and if I get anything even slightly wrong, they can correct it. If there are two of us up there and something goes wrong, you’ll kill everyone!’ And I was like, ‘Okay!'” quipped Cavill

Watching Cruise in action, Cavill explained, gave him the impetus to do his own stunts in his new Netflix fantasy series “The Witcher”.

“I do every single stunt myself,” he said. “I have a lot of respect for the stunt performers and their craft, but if there was an emotional scene I wouldn’t ask another actor to come in a cry for me. For me, it is really important that the character exists in the action, so if I am going to take on a role like ‘The Witcher’ I am going to make sure I can do all the stuff he can do.”
