Mission: Impossible 2 Star Thandie Newton said she had “never been invited” to reappear in the franchise and said she had a “nightmare” working on a stage with co-star Tom Cruise.
Speaking during a long interview with Vulture, Newton, who played Nyah Nordoff-Hall on the second MID film in 2000 said that the reason she no longer played in the franchise was because she was never asked to come back.
She also talked about a difficult experience she had while filming a night scene with Cruise, who plays Impossible missionEthan Hunt, the central character.
“I was so scared of Tom,” she said. “He was a very dominant individual. He tries his best to be a nice person. But the pressure. He takes a lot. And I think he feels that he alone can do everything the best he can.
“Once upon a time, we were doing this scene at night … And I don’t think it was a very well written scene. I get angry with him. We are frustrated with each other. And we look on the ‘Spain. It was not going well. “
She added that Cruise “was not satisfied” with what she was doing in the scene “because I had the craziest aftershocks”.
“And he’s so frustrated with trying to explain that he says,” Just leave me – let’s go, let’s go. Let’s repeat right in front of the camera. “So we rehearsed and they recorded it, and then he said,” I’ll be you. You will be me. “So we filmed the whole scene with me being him – because, believe me, I knew the lines by then – and he was playing me.
“And it was the most useless … I don’t see anything less revealing. It just pushed me further into a place of terror and insecurity. It was really a shame. And bless it. And I want to really say bless him, because he was doing his best. “
Newton revealed that after the night’s shooting ended, she called director Jonathan Demme (who was not involved in the film) and told him that the shooting had been “a nightmare”.
“As I described it, it was clear that I thought I was the big f-king problem. And Jonathan was like,” Thandie, shame on you for not supporting yourself. “He was really sweet. And then Tom called and I thought,” Oh, that’s it. Excuses.“No, it was just like,” We will resume next week. I say to myself, ‘Bright way.’
“And the next time we shot it, I went there and I just manifested everything – because I realized what he wanted. He just wanted this alpha bitch. And I made some best I could. It’s not the best way to get someone’s best job. It wasn’t horrible. It was just – he was really stressed. “
Calling the experience “surreal,” she added that she had “had the most amazing time” working on the film and revealed that Cruise’s wife at the time, actress Nicole Kidman, had been “a great lawyer” to get the role.
Digital spy contacted Tom Cruise representatives for comment.
Cruise is currently working on Mission: Impossible 7 and 8, the shooting of the action sequences should resume in September after the production was stopped by the coronavirus pandemic.
