While Dua Lipa’s SNL performance was a success, her last film, Argylle, couldn’t live up to fans’ expectations. The spy thriller, directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Henry Cavill, failed to capture the attention of the audience.

However, Lipa’s short but important role as the villainous LaGrange was liked by fans. She took the opportunity to show her acting skills and even performed her own stunts during the film’s action sequences.

While speaking to abc News, Lipa expressed her excitement at being a part of the project and working alongside industry veterans like Cavill and Vaughn. Her dedication and commitment to the role were evident. She said,

“I just had the best time on set; it was amazing, and working with Henry [Cavill] was amazing.”

However, Argylle flopped at the box office due to many factors. The film’s high budget, odd and unpredictable premise, and negative early reviews contributed to its failure. Despite the star-studded cast and Vaughn as a director, Argylle struggled to find its hold.

While the film’s performance may have been a disappointment, Lipa’s performance in Argylle and her success on SNL shows her commitment to her craft. As she continues to explore new roles, fans will anticipate witnessing her on both the stage and screen.
