LOOK CRUISE HERE: Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise spotted filming Mission Impossible in tiny Yorkshire village


Tom Cruise in Yorkshire: Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has been spotted filming the new Mission Impossible film in a tiny Yorkshire village.

The Mission Impossible 7 cast and crew have been filming in Levisham, North Yorkshire, much to the delight of many locals and passers-by. Many fans were able to catch a glimpse of Tom Cruise in the quiet Yorkshire village.

We met some of the film fans whose mission was to briefly meet Hollywood royalty.

Superfans Ebony, Yolanda and Cassie waited over 3 hours to get a glimpse of Cruise.

Leeds TV and Tom Cruise fan Diane is on holiday in nearby Pickering and couldn’t resist heading along to see where all the helicopters were landing.

Paul and Sharon have had a passion for Tom Cruise and his films ever since Top Gun - and even credit their marriage to a Mission Impossible-based pavlova task which Sharon set Paul many moons ago!

Rumour has it that filming for the seventh Mission Impossible film has been underway at the site for some weeks, but as word has spread, more and more have been heading along to get a glimpse of Tom Cruise, Hayley Atwell and other members of the cast and crew.

The train track along from Levisham - and the skies above it - have been the main filming locations, with several helicopters spotted throughout the days of filming.

Filming in Pickering

Earlier in the week, Cruise was spotted filming in Pickering. Sarah Jones, 46, said it was a ‘lovely surprise’ to see the actor arrive by helicopter while she was on her daily walk with her dog.

She said the actor was ‘extremely friendly’ and waved at the group of dog walkers who happened to be on the same field in Pickering, North Yorks., during his landing.

Sarah, who runs Pear Tree House Bed & Breakfast nearby, said it was thrilling to see the Top Gun star, as it’s one of her favourite films.
