Waddingham is seen in the image sternly gazing into the distance while donning tan headgear in front of what appears to be a communication hub. In 2022, Waddingham, 48, won the Emmy Award for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for her work in Ted Lasso as Rebecca Welton. She also appeared in the Hocus Pocus 2 prequel in 2022.

Long before the seventh Mission: Impossible film’s July 2023 release date, Mission Impossible: 8—also known as the second installment of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning—has been in production.

Fox News reports that during filming a scene in the Lake District of England in September 2022, Cruise and the production team had to pause because a flock of sheep had attacked the location.

Around 100 animals were seen entering fences that divided the filming set from the English countryside in photos from the incident. Based on pictures of the incident, Cruise, 60, and the other film crew members laughed and grinned as the sheep took over the set. As he parachuted from a mountain’s peak, Cruise, who portrays Ethan Hunt in the movie series, was seen once more playing the role of his stuntman.
