New Indiana Jones movie: Actor checked by ambulance crew after fall during filming on Glasgow street

An actor was checked by an ambulance crew after he had a fall during filming on the new Indiana Jones movie in Glasgow.

The performer appeared to be in a chase scene involving Harrison Ford‘s lead character at a New York parade for the returning Apollo 11 astronauts in 1969, when he barged through a brass band of sailors.

But despite being attended by medics the cast member, whose name is not known, was later back on his feet and gave the crowd a wave to signal he was not seriously hurt.

Also during Sunday’s filming, a body double for Ford could be seen riding a horse and bursting through a banner that had the words "a giant leap for mankind" – the phrase made famous by Neil Armstrong when he walked on the moon.

A body double for fellow actor Boyd Holbrook was seen on a motorbike as part of the chase scene.

Body doubles of Ford and Holbrook have been seen a number of times in the Scottish city over the past week – with filming due to last until 31 July.

The streets of Glasgow have been transformed into Manhattan for shooting on the fifth film in the franchise.

Hundreds of extras were also on the sets.

Scenes were shot on St Vincent Street, as well as in a car park near Ibrox Stadium, home to Scottish football champions Rangers.

Members of the public watched on as the filming took place.

Director James Mangold, who also took the helm for The Greatest Showman, Le Mans ’66 and Logan, has been seen around the city as well.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge has also been spotted in the area.

The film also stars Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Shaunette Renee Wilson and Toby Jones.

Indiana Jones first hit the silver screen in the 1981 flick Raiders of the Lost Ark, followed by The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade later the same decade.

Two decades later, in 2008, a fourth film – The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – was released to mixed reviews.

The bull-whip wielding action archaeologist was jointly created by Star Wars mastermind George Lucas and blockbuster director Steven Spielberg.

The next instalment is due to be released in 2022, despite a potential set back last month when Ford injured his shoulder during a rehearsal.
