Argylle: Does the author of Henry Cavill’s spy thriller even exist?
Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming movie Argylle stars Henry Cavill as the world’s greatest spy as he’s caught up in a globe-trotting adventure. The movie is based on the as-yet-unpublished novel by first-time novelist Elly Conway, with Apple reportedly paying 200 million for the rights. That’s certainly not a small chunk of change, but there seems to be a little confusion regarding who Elly Conway is and if the Argylle author even exists.

A new report from THR dives into the mystery of Elly Conway, who doesn’t seem to have much of an online presence, something largely unheard of in this day and age. When you search her name online, you’ll find that most articles/images bring up references to a fictional character on Neighbors, an Australian soap opera. The author’s Instagram account is also vacant, and her extremely short bio on Penguin simply reads, “Elly

Snow White: Gal Gadot shares “intimidating” details about her Evil Queen
Gal Gadot can be a hero or villain, from Wonder Woman to the Evil Queen. With her latest venture, a new take on Snow White, Gal Gadot put herself into the antagonist’s shoes (heels?–what does that lady wear anyhow?), playing nasty on set.

“I truly felt people were intimidated by me” on the set, Gal Gadot told People. “Everything was very, not aggressive, but it was very intimidating. But to be that character just feels great, because you feel like it’s effective in the story.”

Co-star Rachel Zegler, who plays Snow White, agreed. “It’s very intimidating…And it was also the black lipstick, it was the nails, it was the lashes.”

But there’s more to the Evil Queen than just looks. Gal Gadot wanted to ensure audiences knew there was some dimension to her Snow White character. “I wanted to make sure that we keep her delightful and delicious,
