Hollywood star Tom Cruise has been spotted filming the latest in the Mission: Impossible film franchise in North Yorkshire, reports The Scarborough News.
The actor was seen in Pickering countryside and at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway on Monday (19 April), where he is thought to be filming his latest film, Mission: Impossible 7.
Photos taken by members of the team at Pear Tree B and B and Holiday Cottages, located on Westgate in Pickering, show the star by a helicopter in the Pickering countryside.
Pear Tree B and B and Holiday Cottages posted on social media: "We were walking the dogs today and bumped into Tom Cruise!
"Not only do we love Pickering and our stunning countryside but it was chosen for filming TC's new film!"
Images show Cruise waving to passers by while standing next to the helicopter, which had also been seen flying over Scarborough. The film star is understood to have travelled by helicopter to Pickering.
A film crew was also spotted at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, which is also located in Pickering.
Mission: Impossible 7 has been filming worldwide for the last year, but initial production in Italy last February was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Since then, the film has also been shot in the UK and Abu Dhabi, but it was revealed last week that the release date for the film had been delayed again due to the ongoing pandemic.
The film, which was expected to be released in November 2021, is now expected to air on 27 May 2022.
