In recent weeks, Tom has been seen shooting daredevil stunts in the Lake District, including showing off his skills as a parachutist as he swooped to the ground while performing sky acrobatics in scenes filmed earlier this month.

The actor has been taking flying lessons at Teeside Airport in preparation for the exhilarating scenes in the new film.

Earlier this month, a group of local walkers in the Lake District got a surprise when they stumbled upon Tom filming Mission: Impossible.

The actor, who was being helicoptered to High Cragg before soaring down to Buttermere below, happily posed for a photograph with the pair, before thanking them and leaping off again.

Speaking to The Northern Echo, Adam said several people wanted photos with Tom who happily obliged.

He said: ‘He was nice and polite and really humble. Tom Cruise apologised for the noise of the helicopters and asked if we were alright.

‘He was making sure everybody who wanted to, got their photos with him. We were the last ones to get his picture and then he just paraglided off the mountain back to his camp next to Buttermere.

‘It was a real pleasure meeting one of the most famous Hollywood celebrity actors out there – one of the richest as well. It was not what we expected while out walking on the fells.’

The couple added they watched some of the filming taking place, with Tom performing all his own stunts as he paraglided down the fell several times.

Meanwhile, the cast and crew had an encounter with a flock of sheep who invaded the set last week, after a gate was opened to let them through.

The animals were seen stomping their way along a path as they filed through to chomp on the lush green grass close to a marquee that had been set up for the people working on the film.

Walkers were seen stepping out of the way and taking pictures as dozens of the creatures went about their business.
