Blurring the lines of reality and fiction, the razor-witted mind behind the Kingsman franchise is grilling a new inventory of approaches. Based on the facade of Elle Conway’s series of spy novels, Cavill’s titular character is a mythic representation from the pages of Conway’s creation. But in a twisted turn of events, an actual clandestine operative is also in the works within the plot whose primary target is Conway.

In the face of pulsating action freeze, Elle Conway is taken aback by the imagination of the fictional Argylle becoming her savior. However, staying true to its comic accuracy, her real guardian angel is a dingy persona, Aiden Wilde.

What is “new” for Henry Cavill in Argylle?

Henry Cavill’s performance in action movies has always been witness to his groundwork for devoted practice. While the dedication did not lack herewith either, his take on the fight sequence is both tricky and cheeky. In his latest interview with Entertainment Weekly, the British actor affirmed that filming the action set piece was “definitely a new way of doing things.”.

As per the movie’s plot, the first action sequence takes place on a train. Since Elle Conway visualizes Argylle instead of Aiden, the intense sequence is performed by both the reel and the real figures. Hence, not only Cavill, but Sam Rockwell, who portrays Aiden, had to keep eagle-eyed details on their “similarity of movements.”. Furthermore, the Argylle actor shared how it was “nice doing these things” with someone who was on the same page as him.

Henry Cavill also shed some light on how Aiden’s and his own appearances will be widely contrasting. Apparently, Aiden will be the agent with a shaggy beard and long tresses. On the other hand, Cavill will rock “a flat top haircut” with a green velvet suit, something that is largely not in the books of his history of portrayals.
