By: Margaret Wilson
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. Although the British actor was denied to perform a daring airplane stunt on the set of the «Mission: Impossible-Fallout». That was a stunt he had long been dreaming of checking off his wish list. But Tom Cruise was the one who had to tell Cavill it wasn’t going to happen.
Henry admitted he was desperate to do his own stunts. «The jump out of the back of a Boeing C-17at dusk was my idea of magic and I was praying they'd let me do it, begging Tom. And Tom eventually said to me, Look Henry, I understand what you're saying. I would love, love, love for you to do it but if you do, the chances are that you will kill me and everyone else in the process,» Henry said.
But Cavill ended up with a signature move of his own by the end of filming that has already gone viral and turned into a popular animated GIF. After demonstrating the move in slow motion for the «Good Morning America» audience, Cavill offered some practical life advice.
