While shooting a scene in Venice, Ethan and Paris engage in a fight. Klementieff suggests to Cruise to kick her in the stomach to make the scene look more realistic. She even points to her midsection and urges him to go for it, saying it would be beneficial for her performance. However, Cruise declines and refuses to kick her.

In: Impossible 7, Klementieff’s character is described as a chaotic element in the story. Even if she’s in the background, viewers will be constantly watching and wondering what she will do. Her character, Paris, destroys everything in her path and is a rebellious, skilled killer who is also quite lonely.
