Tom Cruise leaves Kevin Gallacher stunned after bumping into ex-Blackburn striker while filming Mission Impossible

HOLLYWOOD star Tom Cruise stunned ex-Blackburn striker Kevin Gallacher after the former footballer spotted him filming Mission Impossible 7.

The 59-year-old actor has been in England shooting his latest movie in the famous franchise since last September.



And to the amazement of ex-Scotland international Gallacher, Cruise came strolling past them while they were exploring the countryside.

Speaking on Twitter, he said: "We went for a walk and noticed a helicopter flying up and down the hills, wondering why!

"We walked around the lake to find campervans and tents and a second helicopter, overhead we had paragliders.

"To our amazement @TomCruise came walking past. What a day to finish our weekend."

Gallacher hung up his boots in 2002 after nearly two decades playing the game.

The Scot netted 134 goals in 525 games for a number of clubs including Dundee United, Coventry City, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United.

He was also capped 53 times for Scotland, scoring nine goals for his country.

Gallacher was a part of the Scottish squads that went to Euro '92, Euro '96 and World Cup '98.

Meanwhile, earlier this week Cruise was seen landing in a helicopter as he finished shooting the highly publicised film.

Over the last year he has been seen performing death-defying stunts himself, after refusing to use a stuntman.

Filming has taken longer this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In December last year Tom was secretly recorded telling staff they are “f*****g gone” if they break strict Covid-19 rules and delay filming even further.

The movie – which is expected out in cinemas next May – also hit ANOTHER roadblock in June when Tom was told to self-isolate for two weeks after 14 crew got Covid.
