During his recent promotional events for Argylle, the team spoke to Collider, where they were asked about the scene in their career they had felt most nervous about before filming. Cavill said,


“I think you can get nervous and scared before most scenes, really. It’s good to have that feeling. It means the scene is alive inside you. But before I knew that, it was The Count of Monte Cristo, which was my first ever-professional job. I was fresh out of school, and I was terrified.”

During his conversation with Collider, the actor who has had good experience filming action sequences in movies before was asked about them for Argylle using new techniques. To which he said,

Cavill shared that director Matthew Vaughn had informed the cast that they are trying to do something brand new and there is a probability of it working or failing but they’d have to work really hard in the rehearsals and see how it goes. The actor continued,

“We pushed and pushed and pushed, and all that rehearsal time and all the work that Matthew puts into pre-production pays off because Sam and I, on that train scene for example, it seemed to go fairly seamlessly and it was only because of the hard work put in.”

Henry Cavill lastly added that scenes like these only work when the cast does their bit puts in the hard work, prep well, and eventually it turns out to be a fantastic scene. Vaughn admitted that he likes to start movies with a strong, hard sequence because it gets the crew up to speed very quickly.

Argylle is available to stream on Apple TV+.
