Harrison Ford swapped Indy’s trademark fedora for lycra while filming “Indiana Jones 5” in the Newcastle-Upon-Tyne area of North East England.
The 78-year-old actor surprised diners by cycling to local coastal eatery the Ship’s Cat in North Shields this week to grab lunch while filming the latest action-adventure movie.
“Everyone was a bit starstruck,” restaurant manager Connor Graham tells the Times. “He was really nice to all the staff, down to earth, and friendly. But we didn’t want to interrupt him when he was just having a meal.”
Fellow diners may not have interrupted Ford, but one sneaky visitor managed to snap a pic of the actor at the restaurant and shared it on social media.
Just Harrison Ford. On his bike.
In North Shields.
