Tom Cruise faced an unexpected dilemma while filming ‘Mission: Impossible 8’.
The actor and his team were forced to halt production after an unlikely confrontation with a flock of sheep in England’s Lake District.
The animals were seen heading towards the filming area and began chewing grass near a marquee set up for filming on Wednesday.
The 60-year-old Hollywood star couldn’t help but laugh at the heist and was even seen stepping aside so the animals could pass, Fox News reports.
The actor, who plays crime-solving hero Ethan Hunt in the film franchise, has been shooting scenes for the film since July.
Cruise, famous for his own stunts, was recently seen jumping off a mountain and paragliding while filming.
The seventh film in the franchise is slated for release in July 2023. A release date for the eighth film has yet to be announced.
It seems that England has several surprises in store for Cruise.
A group of local Lake District walkers got more than they bargained for on Tuesday after accidentally bumping into the actor in the countryside.
The actor happily posed for snaps with a couple of passers-by, before thanking them and resuming filming.
“He was nice and polite and really humble. Tom Cruise apologized for the noise from the helicopters and asked if everything was okay,” Adam Wheeler told The Northern Echo.
“He made sure anyone who wanted to had their pictures with him. We were the last to take his picture and then he simply paraglided down the mountain to his camp next to Buttermere.
“It was a real pleasure to meet one of Hollywood’s most famous actors – one of the richest as well. It wasn’t what we expected walking the hills,” Wheeler added.
