The Mission: Impossible franchise has earned a reputation for the insane real-life death-defying stunts that Tom Cruise do all by himself. He also tends to drag the other actors into these stunts as well. However, there was one stunt in Mission: Impossible – Fallout that Henry Cavill wasn’t allowed to do because it was so critical there was a possibility that he could’ve killed Tom Cruise in the process.
Cavill recently told Good Morning America that they stunt was the HALO (High Altitude, Low Opening) jump out of a plane from 30,000 feet. This is the same stunt that Tom Cruise ended up pulling off.
“Tom eventually said to me, ‘I understand what you’re saying. I’d love for you to do it, but if you do, the chances are you will kill me and everyone else in the process’.”
It is a disappointing story of how Henry Cavill wasn’t allowed to jump from 30,000 feet and Tom Cruise was. What do you think?
