The excitement was palpable as we arrived on site and joined all the other photographers and news media. We received our press credentials and slowly were led into the temporary tent structures outside the theatre that enclosed the red carpet. The long hall was decorated with large framed movie posters every few feet and on the other side of the carpet was the roped off area for the news media. It was very exciting to stand at our spot and watch the rest of the press set up their equipment and prepare for the arrival of the stars. Scheduled to be present from the movie were: Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Hugh Grant, Luca Calvani, Misha Kuznetsov, Simona Caparrini, Guy Ritchie and Lionel Wigram.
Soon we were alerted of the stars arrival as flashes from cameras began going off. The stars entered the structure from one end of the long red carpet and slowly made their way down to the other end. We could see Luca and Simona making their way down first. Behind them we could see Henry and Armie and then the rest. They were stopping every few inches to talk to another reporter or pose for a picture. At one point, they all gathered next to the beautiful background of the framed posters for a group photo opportunity. The dynamics of the red carpet involves a lot of waiting for your turn. It is a slow process as the main stars get asked more questions than the others which holds up the line.

While waiting, Charlie Cavill, Henry’s brother, stopped by our spot and looked down to our sign that said “HenryCavill.org.” He looked up and said “Hey I love you guys! You do so much for us and I’m so grateful for all you do! I just love your website!” We were thrilled by his comments and asked him how he was enjoying his visit and the premiere so far, and he said he was having a blast. We then got him on video thanking us again.
Next, the actress, Simona Caparrini, who plays the Contessa on TMFU, got to us, and we were able to quickly interview her. She was very sweet and personable.
Unfortunately we missed Luca Calvani as he hurried into the theatre.
Finally Henry got closer to our area. We could make out the gorgeous Dunhill dark grey wool 3-piece suit with gold tie and gold/white pocket square. He is even more handsome and charismatic in person! His publicist pointed us out to him and he made his way over. We then began our interview. Although he had a cold, he was very charming and extremely polite. He answered all of our questions, thanking us at the end.
As we were speaking to Henry, we noticed Armie and the ladies heading into the theatre so we were not able to interview them.
All in all the red carpet experience for The Man from U.N.C.L.E. premiere was a fantastic experience for us and the fans!
