Charlotte Duck talks to Henry Cavill & Armie about playing spies, doing accents and a possible Man From UNCLE sequel.
Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer have been talking about their new movie, the Guy Ritchie-directed spy thriller, The Man From UNCLE.
Henry, who plays America CIA agent Napoleon Solo, talked about how he struggled at first with an American accent.
“I definitely struggled at the beginning because we hadn’t found the accent by the time we started shooting. When we were shooting Guy would come in and say ‘No, that sounds wrong,’ or ‘this sounds wrong’ or ‘try and say the word this way’ and because there’s no uniform structure to it, it became very difficult to perform and you become very conscious of speaking as opposed to acting and feeling. Eventually we found it about a quarter of the way through the movie because we found a way of speaking that was consistent.
The actor also joked about being approached the play Bond following Daniel Craig’s predicted exit: “It’s top secret so I can’t say anything.”
Armie also seemed keen: “Totally, I’m in. I’m not supposed to talk about it yet but I’ve had a conversation with someone.”
The movie, which GLAMOUR very much enjoyed, sets up for a sequel at the finale so we asked the boys if this was happening.
“We haven’t heard anything. We’d love to do it,” said Henry.
