One man was “absolutely stunned” when Tom Cruise parachuted into the middle of his hike.
Andras Catica was enjoying a day in the Lake District last week when he heard a helicopter hovering overhead.
As it landed a group of men erupted – among them even Hollywood superstars.
Cruise jumped from a parachute while shooting for his upcoming film Mission Impossible 7.
And our remarkable videos and photos capture the star in action.
They also give Granthshala readers a glimpse of what the star might look like in the upcoming Top Gun remake, due to hit cinema screens in November.
Andras, who was hiking with his friend Tutti last night, said: “I certainly wasn’t expecting to bump into Tom Cruise during my hike. That’s when I realized who it was.” was clearly completely stunned.
“But he was really friendly and offered to take his picture. It looked like he was having a great time, but was also involved in some serious work for the filming.
“By the time he parachuted, a little crowd had gathered, but Tom showed no sign of nerves. He clearly loves the thrill of being involved in his stunts.”
Cruz’s colleagues said they were in the field testing a new ‘prototype wing’.
Earlier this week it was revealed how the actor’s production team took care of an entire farm of cows after tightening security during the shoot of MI7.
The actors were doing more parachute jumps in the UK’s Lake District when devices used to stop drones from interfering put the animals into confusion.
Cattle shackled as Tom, who performs his own movie stunts, jumps from a helicopter four times to his latest outing as action detective Ethan Hunt, right.
A source explained: “A high frequency noise was used to stop the drone flying near him during the parachute jump, but the technique was too strong and the cows fell across the field.
“Thankfully, they were fine once the scratching device came off.”
Although Cattle may not be his biggest fan, Tom continued to have his fascination throughout the UK while filming.
He thanked some local people “for letting me live in a country of such beauty”.
A person who chatted with friends said: “We talked about the film and he said he likes to parachute jump and has been hiking here several times.
“He was in no hurry to get off and treated us like friends.”
