Sarah and Jason Haygarth, a UK couple, were enjoying a hike in the Lake District with their dog Edward when they reportedly spotted and spoke to Top Gun: Maverick star Tom Cruise.
The duo recently told a publication about meeting the Hollywood star on a walk in Britain’s very remote and quite hilly National Park.
“Towards the end of the hike, the final summit, we start to see helicopters coming up a ravine and dropping people off the top… We thought that didn’t seem right,” Jason told the publication. “We found out the people, those were the cameramen. When we reached the top, we were stopped by a member of the production team and said, “You can’t go. We’re going to land the helicopter up there…’ So we took a selfie.”
It was soon revealed that the 60-year-old star was filming a stunt sequence for his upcoming film Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning. As Sarah and Jason were allowed to continue their hike, the couple met Cruise.
“I could tell right away it was him,” Sarah told the publication. “When we got there, people were talking about Mission: Impossible being filmed… but I was expecting a stunt double.”
“He first apologized for the noise. ‘Sorry guys, I know we spoiled your walk with the noise,'” Jason said, Cruise told them. “And then he said, ‘I like your dog,'” Sarah added.
Sarah said she asked the actor after the cliff, “Are you really going to jump off there?” Cruise nodded and called out before making the jump, “See you later guys.”
Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One is slated to hit theaters on July 14, 2023. The film also stars Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson and Cary Elwes.
