Top Gun Star Anthony Edwards Reacts To Maverick, And Shares What He Told Tom Cruise

Anthony Edwards took part in 1986’s Top Gun as a key character in the life of Tom Cruise’s Pete “Maverick” Mitchell: Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, Pete’s RIO and best friend. Unfortunately, Goose puts a tragic end in Top Gunbut his spirit is most certainly felt during the events of Top Gun: Maverick through both Cruise’s character and his son, Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, played by Miles Teller. As far as real life goes, Edwards has shared both his opinion on maverick and what he told Cruise about one of the most recent 2022 movie releases.

Although Anthony Edwards didn’t attend the world premiere of Top Gun: Maverick, he informed ET that Tom arranged to screen it for his co-star in person, and Edwards brought his son Bailey with him to see the movie. So what did Edwards think about maverick? He summarized his thoughts thusly:

People had a certain feeling in the original one and that one [Top Gun: Maverick] does exactly what it felt like seeing it the first time, only more so. As I said to Tom, ‘mission accomplished.’ They did it. They really did though. It’s a lot of work that went into that. It had the feel, it had the tone, it had what people wanted.
