<b>You needed to prepare for a lot of physicality in this film. What was the hardest part of that training?</b><br>
The sprinting. Definitely the sprinting. Because I work out in my real life and I go running for exercise, but actually having to sprint--like really, really, Tom Cruise-style sprinting--it's harder than it seems. Or it's harder than it looks to maintain the physicality and also to be playing a character so historically associated with economy of movement, with stillness. To have to accelerate and to engage in that level of exertion was probably the most challenging aspect of the physical training.<br><br>
 
<b>How fast were you going at the peak?</b><br>
I don't know in terms of m.p.h., but I know that I was hauling ass and pushing myself to the absolute limits of my capabilities. [Laughs.]
