  • Dialogue changed during the shooting of the film and improvisation was involved. When it came to the dialogue, Henry Cavill said, "Some days they stay exactly as they are, and other days they change completely, and that's quite refreshing." Actress Alicia Vikander said of this movie: "It's a great feeling knowing that, together, you've gone beyond what was originally on the page. You get to know your character better because you're not only thinking about what they say, but about what they might say." Actor Henry Cavill, for whom working with director Guy Ritchie was the number one reason he signed onto the project, concurred: "His movies are fantastic and his filmmaking style is unique. There's no over-rehearsing, so you can get in there and do it, and it feels very fresh and new when you shoot." Actor Armie Hammer added: "It really keeps you sharp. You have to do your homework and show up ready for anything because things can change," who likewise jumped at the chance to work with the acclaimed director. "I think he intentionally keeps the atmosphere light because you get the best work when everyone is free and everything is flowing. It's an open, inviting, creative space and that's what Guy tries to cultivate on the set."
  • In the television series [The Man From U.N.C.L.E.], American agent Napoleon Solo is played by American actor Robert Vaughn, and Russian agent Illya Kuryakin is played by UK actor David McCallum (from Scotland).
