‘I was in love with him!’ Mission: Impossible star Rebecca Ferguson reveals she had a ‘huge’ childhood crush on her ‘wonderful, hilarious’ co-star Tom Cruise.

The 31-year-old, who is starring in the hotly-anticipated new installment of the franchise, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, revealed her youthful infatuation in an interview with ELLE.com. ‘I had [a crush on] Tom Cruise,’ Rebecca admitted, before confessing that she had even filled her co-star in on her former fantasy: ‘And yes, I told him [about it].’ A devoted fan from an early age, Rebecca explained: ‘I had a recurring dream about him, like a love dream.HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Jul 22, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) — TCL, the fastest growing TV brand in North America, today announced a marketing partnership with Paramount Pictures in support of the July 31 theatrical release of the upcoming film “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” produced by and starring Tom Cruise and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. In the film, Ethan (Cruise) and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate, an International rogue organization, as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the IMF. He was probably my one crush.’ After seeing a five minute video that the actress had previously recorded, Cruise requested that Rebecca fly out to meet him in London.

For the red-carpet event and screening, the historic Vienna State Opera House is receiving a makeover of IMAX proportions exclusively for this premiere. TCL bought the naming rights for what was formerly called the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre for $5 million in 2013 as part of an effort to raise its profile in Hollywood. During the past three days, IMAX’s team has equipped the opera house with an IMAX screen measuring approximately 56 feet by 37 feet, IMAX’s proprietary dual-projection system and a custom sound system configured and tuned to optimize the playback of the film’s IMAX soundtrack in this unique environment.

According to director Christopher McQuarrie, the pair immediately began bonding from the moment they met, leaving both him and Tom with little doubt about who should take on the role. ‘Rebecca walked into the room and she and Tom started chatting,’ he explained in a recent interview. ‘I was asked if I wanted to audition her and I said, “It’s OK, she’s already got the job.”’ She was filming the TV epic The Red Tent, which is based on the novel of the same name by Anita Diamant, and 17 hours later she was walked into a London hotel, about to meet her superstar childhood crush. TCL has shouldered into the domestic home electronics market, rising from selling roughly 100,000 sets two years ago to approximately one million this year. This marks the second time IMAX has transformed an iconic venue for a one-night-only global premiere following Paramount’s Transformers: Age of Extinction in June 2014. It is fifth in market share among television manufacturers. “We want to grow both our brands,” Chris Larson, vice president of sales and marketing for TCL, said of the Paramount partnership. “The film is fun and engaging without being heavy, and that’s how we see ourselves. TCL is already the official sponsor of the world-famous TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, home of numerous major movie premieres, and the historic display of hand and footprints of cinema’s biggest stars. “TCL has emerged as a true player on the Hollywood landscape.

What am I doing?” When it came to being on set with Tom, he certainly lived up to his action star reputation. ‘Tom Cruise likes to run,’ she explained. ‘I don’t know if you’ve seen him. We just want them to be able to consume it in the best possible way.” Paramount previously worked with TCL on its “Transformers” films, so the companies had a prior relationship. He sprints like a Formula 1 Man, so…’ After landing the role she returned to London and spent six hours a day, six days a week, physically preparing with ‘a lot of sprinting, a lot of regular training, and then we had choreography sessions for the special scenes’. Studio executives view “Mission: Impossible” as one of their preeminent film franchises, and say they are judicious in how many corporate tie-ins they use.

It is also working with the likes of BMW and Glu Mobile. “It’s a prestige franchise for us, and we, from the filmmaking team to the talent involved, don’t seek out a big logo parade of partners,” said LeeAnne Stables, president of worldwide marketing partnerships & licensing at Paramount. “We like to work with a short list and do quality, creative work.” The new line of smart TVs features the Roku® operating system which includes a personalized home screen, 2000+ streaming channels and super easy, user-friendly experiences.
