Over the past few years, the magnitude of Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill’s fame has risen exponentially. Now the two stars are not only looking at helming big-budget productions but can boast of a highly expansive and successful future in the industry. With Enola Holmes 2 making a big splash on Netflix, it seems like the onscreen sibling rivalry of the duo has filtered out into the real world and Millie Bobby Brown just cannot make her older co-star get on the Gen-Z train with her.

Millie Bobby Brown Cannot Get Henry Cavill To Do a TikTok

While the clash of generations is a problem of every person trying to reconcile their ideologies with those of their predecessors, Millie Bobby Brown seems to take it personally as she calls out Henry Cavill for his physicality. The two Brits have been co-starring in the Enola Holmes films adapted from the eponymous Nancy Springer novels. During their time together, the much extroverted Brown has made it her duty to annoy Cavill by any means necessary.

While it is very much in the Stranger Things star’s character to radiate peak Gen-Z energy, the poised and gentlemanly presence of Henry Cavill is a facade that has proved difficult to break, even by Brown’s presence. Those who have kept tabs on the emergent actor’s activities on social media or her presence in interviews know how contagious Brown’s energy can be. The undefeated enthusiasm with which she presents herself naturally draws all the spotlight on her. It’s not too much, considering all of Brown’s indomitable traits, for her to ask Henry Cavill to join in on a TikTok trend with her. But it’s easier said than done.

Millie Bobby Brown Recalls Henry Cavill’s On-Set Presence

While it is truly amazing to witness a quirky Sherlock getting on with his sibling and pairing up to solve a case, Henry Cavill’s whimsical presence makes the role manifold better. But that’s not all the tea to be had from the Netflix set of Cavill’s new film. During an interview with BBC Radio 1’s film critic, Ali Plumb, Millie Bobby Brown divulges some insider secrets from her time on the sets of Enola Holmes 2 and her theories on what stands in the way of Henry Cavill and a TikTok video dance.

“Ali, it is honestly like getting a brick wall to move. It’s just not gonna happen unless I get a sledgehammer and just get in there, it’s not gonna happen. Well, also the fact that he’s just very big in general, I can’t get him to move. It would be like, you know, his hand would be there and my head would be like pressing up against it —  he’s just too big and muscular.”

When Plumb facilitates the commentary by recalling how in the movie, Cavill’s Sherlock is like a dead horse on top of another dead horse, Brown snarkily quips, “It is, it’s truly like that. That is Henry Cavill, our new James Bond.” Even though the “James Bond” quip has stirred up some unwarranted noise, it is to be noted that the slip-up about Cavill being the next Bond was one made entirely as a joke to be understood within the context of the interview, and was not a confirmation of the actor’s role within the 007 franchise.

Enola Holmes 2 is now available for streaming on Netflix.
