Cruising into The Oval

Andrew McGlashan

The Oval has greeted many famous faces over the year, both on the field and in the stands watching the action, but last week there was one of the more unexpected sights to appear at SE11.

On a wintery November morning, Tom Cruise landed on the outfield in a helicopter to shoot scenes from his latest film All You Need is Kill.

Along with film crew and extras he milled around the outfield, rugged up against the cold, often with a coffee cup in hand. However, there was no sign of an impromptu game of cricket to keep warm.
