Henry Cavill has recalled the most difficult scene or sequence he has filmed in his career so far.

The Brit, who has long been a favourite to become the next James Bond, has starred in gruelling productions like Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Witcher and Mission Impossible: Fallout.

There was a lot of physicality required from Cavill in each of those projects, but he says one sequence in Fallout was particularly hard for a number of reasons.

"Even though it's not a single shot, it's a sequence, and I love this sequence and I would do it again in a heartbeat, but physically the most enduring was a ‘Mission: Impossible’ helicopter sequence," he told Collider.

"It was so extremely cold, literally above the Southern Alps in winter, with the doors open on a helicopter. I'm sticking my face into the wind and firing blanks, with all sorts of stuff flying back at me, and just doing it over, and over, and over again. Completely deaf, just waiting for the pilot to scream something inaudible and do this , which meant we are rolling. So I had to then just keep on acting with my head out the window until I assumed that they had stopped shooting.

"So. I was watching either Tom 's helicopter in front or behind, and watching the camera ship as well, to see when the camera ship pulled away and did its own thing. I was like, 'Okay, I think that means I can sit back in now.'

"I'll do that for 40 minutes, then land, and then sit by a little Red Rad heater, warm my hands up. Within a half an hour they're like, 'Right, we're refuelled. Let's go again.'

"It was just having to suck it up and do that for at least two weeks. That was rough, but I absolutely loved the sequence, and it was so worth it.“

The sequence that Cavill is referring to involves his character August Walker involved in a daring helicopter chase with Tom Cruise's hero Ethan Hunt.
