Tom Cruise is known for his daring stunts in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, and his co-star Vanessa Kirby recently revealed just how fearless he is.
Kirby, who played Princess Margaret in the hit Netflix series “The Crown,” is set to reprise her role as White Widow in “Mission: Impossible 7.” In an interview with British talk show “This Morning,” she opened up about filming a scene with Cruise where they ride motorcycles off a cliff.
According to Kirby, Cruise had “no fear” during the stunt and was completely in control of the situation. She described the experience as “madness,” but also praised Cruise for his professionalism and dedication to the craft.
“He’s got no fear, he’s got complete control,” Kirby said. “He’s done it so many times, he knows exactly what he’s doing.”
This isn’t the first time Cruise has performed death-defying stunts in the “Mission: Impossible” series. In the past, he’s hung off the side of a plane, scaled the world’s tallest building, and performed a HALO (high altitude, low opening) jump.
Despite the risks involved, Cruise is known for doing his own stunts whenever possible, which has earned him a reputation as one of the most dedicated and hard-working actors in Hollywood.
“Mission: Impossible 7” is set to release in May 2022, with a sequel already in the works. If Kirby’s comments are any indication, fans can expect more heart-stopping stunts from Cruise in the years to come.
