Harrison Ford appears to have finally made his debut on the set of Indiana Jones 5.

Twitter account EYFS enthusiast  shared a behind-the-scenes snap that sees the actor, 78, in his famous garb on set in North Yorkshire on Monday.

The What Lies Beneath star wore his famous fedora, with a taupe shirt and jacket as he was spotted in the village of Grosmont, surrounded by crewmembers.

Harrison was snapped with Lucasfilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy in the image, and was seen chatting to her through his face mask.

The Twitter user revealed the Hollywood star had made a cheeky quip to a young fan, writing: ‘Look who walked right past us in Grosmont today…Our son asked him if he was Indiana Jones and he tipped his hat and said no, he was just the stunt double.’ 

Fellow film buffs quickly responded to the tweet, writing: ‘Great response!’ and ‘I love this guy.’ 

The Star Wars vet was spotted near Pinewood Studios – a British film and television studio located in the village of Iver Heath in Buckinghamshire – a few days ago.

Resident Delphine Gale said the arrival of Ford into the sleepy village had created a ‘fantastic vibe’ in the area.

She said: ‘After the year we’ve had, to have the excitement of Hollywood coming to the village has really cheered us all up.’   

On Tuesday, the Hollywood legend was also seen in Newcastle, as he cycled along the banks of the River Tyne.

Harrison displayed his hunky physique in cycling garb paired with a helmet as he exercised during a break from his filming schedule. 

This comes after production got underway over the weekend on the North Yorkshire Moors in the dead of night earlier this week.

A stuntman was seen, surrounded by a film crew and hefty equipment, in order to shoot a motorcycle sequence.

Though very dark and misty, the stuntman appeared to be brandishing a face mask resembling Harrison, who plays the titular lead role.

The scene was shot in the early hours in Pickering – but the stunt went a little awry when the motorcyclist came tumbling off.

The head-mask flew off in the incident, with one of the crew having to retrieve it.

The on-set first aid team was called over to check out the stunt rider.

While it appeared he was unharmed, filming was paused due to damage caused to the motorbike.

According to a witness, one of the crew was heard saying that the production is already a day behind schedule, following a lengthy hold up thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This will be Harrison’s fifth time reprising the title role of the heroic archaeologist with supporting parts going to Mads Mikkelsen, 55, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, 35.

 A stretch of the North Yorkshire Moors railway has been transformed for the film too.

Crew members of the 2022 blockbuster could be seen on Friday working near a steam train which had been transformed into a Nazi carrier engine.

Filming will begin on the same stretch of track used only a few weeks ago by Tom Cruise for Mission: Impossible 7.

A glimpse at the props being set-up showed a black steam train which had been transformed into a Nazi carrier engine and vintage cars. 

A swastika insignia had been attached to the side of the steam engine, as well as onto a wooden pallet and onto the side of a green passenger carriage. 

A number of props were also being positioned by crew members onto open-topped carriages to give the impression that the steam engine was transporting goods for the Nazis in the film. Additionally, a number of vintage vehicles were also spotted parked on a field nearby. 

A troop-carrying truck, as featured in a number of the other Indiana Jones films was one of the vehicles parked near the train tracks, with crews working to put on the canvas roofing.

Additionally, a vintage motorcycle featuring a sidecar was also among the vehicles – a similar bike featured in the third Indiana Jones instalment.

The set pictures comes after reports in The Sun shooting will also take place at the ‘haunted’ Bamburgh castle situated on the northeast coast of England by the village of Bamburgh in Northumberland. 

The crew is reportedly ‘spooked’ by the famed Pink Lady. According to the publication, the crew is worried about the castle as it is haunted by the Pink Lady from the Middle Ages who roams the halls.   

‘It sounds silly but before filming even starts, all any of us are talking about is the ghost. It’s a seriously creepy place,’ an insider told the site.

‘A surprising number of the crew really believe in this stuff and it’s rattled everyone. A number of the team are reluctant to even go into the oldest part of the castle, it’s really shaken them up… 

‘The team will have to overcome it, even if some of them want to avoid certain places.’ 

James Mangold is directing the movie in place of Steven Spielberg, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Thomas Kretschmann are also on board to star.

Plot details are still being kept under wraps, and it’s unclear what roles the new additions will play in the fifth film.

Legendary composer John Williams is also set to return, continuing a musical legacy that began 40 years ago with Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Meanwhile, Harrison previously said he wouldn’t make another Indiana Jones movie unless he was sure the production team could ‘kill it.’

Citing the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he said: ‘I don’t really want to give them what they wanna see, I want to give them something they didn’t anticipate seeing.

‘The Marvel movies are a spectacular example of a success that worked the other way round – they killed it.

‘We’re not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we’re in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best.’

Last month Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renee Wilson joined the cast of Indiana Jones 5.

The Logan star and the 31-year-old actress will both star in the fifth instalment of the iconic action franchise.

Indiana Jones 5 was first announced in 2016 and originally scheduled to be released in July 2019. 

It was then pushed back a year, before being delayed for another 12 months until July 2021 after Jonathan Kasdan – whose father Lawrence Kasdan wrote 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark – was brought on board to work on the script after original screenwriter David Koepp departed the project.

The most recent film in the series was 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which earned over $790.6 million at the global box office.

The current release date for Indiana Jones 5 is July 29, 2022.
