Claudia Schiffer’s cat makes acting debut in first trailer for movie Argylle

Forget nepobabies, Claudia Schiffer’s cat is about to make its acting debut in upcoming Hollywood film Argylle.

Directed and produced by Matthew Vaughn, Argylle is described as “a razor-witted, reality-bending, globe-encircling spy thriller”.

The official synopsis reads: “Bryce Dallas Howard is Elly Conway, the reclusive author of a series of best-selling espionage novels, whose idea of bliss is a night at home with her computer and her cat, Alfie.

“But when the plots of Elly’s fictional books – which center on secret agent Argylle and his mission to unravel a global spy syndicate – begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organisation, quiet evenings at home become a thing of the past.

“Accompanied by Aiden (Sam Rockwell), a cat-allergic spy, Elly (carrying Alfie in her backpack) races across the world to stay one step ahead of the killers as the line between Elly’s fictional world and her real one begins to blur.”

Alfie is played by Chip, the real-life cat of supermodel Claudia Vaughn (née Schiffer).

The ensemble cast also includes Henry Cavill, John Cena, Ariana DeBose, Dua Lipa and Bryan Cranston.

Catherine O’Hara, Sofia Boutella and Samuel L. Jackson also appear.

Argylle is due for release in cinemas nationwide from February 2.
