Tom Cruise, 55, suffered an injury while performing a stunt for ‘Mission Impossible 6’ last year, and so he was forced to halt filming to heal the injury. It seems like everything is back to normal as the actor was seen on top of the Tate Modern Gallery in London, as reported by Radar Online, with helicopters buzzing around him.
The actor broke his ankle when jumping a stunt in August and was out of commission for the entire 5 months. He admitted at the end of last year that the injury was yet to heal properly. This last week, Cruise was seen looking in top form as he performed stunts that he is known for making fans believe that he has recovered, even though he seemed to have a harness on his ankle for some of the scenes.
Radar Online reported last year that Cruise had leapt off after performing a dangerous stunt. He jumped of a rigging one building to another, but fell short and slammed into the other building. The poor landing caused his injury. Although he must have been in pain, considering he hurt his ankle, the actor refused to use painkillers in line with his Scientology belief.
Well, the pain and injury seem to be a thing if the past now and the actor is back doing what he does best. He, alongside Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames, are getting the action going in time for the July release of Mission Impossible 6. Oh, and the actor learnt how to fly a helicopter so he could perform the stunts even better. How is that for dedication?! Some of the scenes were shot at St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Cruise’s injury on one of his movies is not the first on set. Investigations are ongoing for two pilots who allegedly fell to their deaths when filming ‘American Made.’
Glad to have Cruise back on set? Talk to us in comments.
