How Kristen Scott Thomas Feels About A Possible Return To Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible Series

As Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 both feel like they’re starting to draw the Ethan Hunt saga to a close, writer/director Christopher McQuarrie has been bringing back ghosts from the IMF super agent’s past. Returning figures like Henry Czerny’s Eugene Kittridge from the 1996 original only prove that point, as Tom Cruise’s iconic character is about to make his way through what could be his greatest, and final, mission. With the door wide open for pretty much anyone to return, one has to wonder if Mission: Impossible star Kristen Scott Thomas would be keen on returning herself. 

During the press day for Apple TV+’s dark espionage comedy Slow Horses, I had the privilege of speaking with Thomas, who plays the exacting Diana Taverner in this new series. Returning to the world of spies and state secrets, Kristen Scott Thomas finds herself higher up the food chain this time, as her MI5 gig doesn’t send her out into the field much. Which might work to the favor of Mission: Impossible fans, as she told CinemaBlend the following: 

Well now you’ve planted an idea in my head. I love doing things that are outside my kind of [wheelhouse.] Throughout my career, I’ve done an awful lot of smoking cigarettes and drinking champagne. So anything that is outside of that, I’m terribly excited about it. So yeah, why not? That’s what’s so great about movies, is that it’s all invented. It’s not real.
