Vanessa Kirby reprised her role as Alanna Mitsopolis, also known as the White Widow, in "Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One."
Kirby focused on portraying the White Widow as a powerful and dangerous international arms dealer, adding an electrifying dynamic to the film.
The character of the White Widow is known for her quiet yet menacing look and aura, which Kirby found challenging to learn.
Kirby aimed to capture the essence of what the previous actor had done with the character.
She was surprised to see herself as someone in charge of a dark and powerful organization but wanted to bring lightness and playfulness to the role.
Kirby performed stunts alongside Tom Cruise, who plays protagonist Ethan Hunt, and Cruise is known for performing his own stunts in the "Mission: Impossible" series.
"Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One" hits theaters today, following a four-year gap since the release of the previous installment, "Mission: Impossible – Fallout."
To show gratitude to the audiences and embrace their enthusiasm for the franchise, Cruise and other cast members visited movie theaters in multiple cities.
The bond among the cast and crew grew stronger during the filming of the movie, as they formed a little family in their bubble during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Vanessa Kirby expressed pride in being part of the film and praised the fantastic work of the entire cast.
