Vanessa Kirby has confirmed her return for the upcoming 7th and 8th Mission: Impossible films.
Vanessa Kirby made her debut in the Mission: Impossible series in the 2018 film, Mission: Impossible-Fallout. In it, Vanessa Kirby played a black market dealer named Alanna Mitsopolis and was also known as the White Widow. She ultimately aids the CIA and IMF in their battles against Sean Harris’ Solomon Lane. By the time the film ends, Vanessa Kirby’s character is still alive and being kept as a potential ally for the various spy organizations. Now it seems that the IMF will be using Vanessa Kirby’s character in the upcoming Mission: Impossible sequels.
During a recent interview with Glamor, Vanessa Kirby let it slip that she was about to go into training for the upcoming Mission: Impossible films and just how exhausting her career currently is:
I was really tired, I just got in from Canada and I was dying, I was dyinggg! I felt like a dishcloth. I just wrapped filming a movie (Pieces of a Woman) about a couple who lose a baby with Shia LaBeouf who is now one of my best friends – I love him so much. It was extremely intense and very dark so going into training for Mission Impossible is slightly going to release it all.
