Keeping up with Dr Jones: Harrison Ford was spotted taking time out from filming the fifth 'Indiana Jones' movie in the North East of England at Bamburgh Castle. He's pictured here at Cresswell in Northumberland prepping for a bike ride. He was accompanied by his personal assistant and a bodyguard.

A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "It’s incredible. He seems to live a very strict routine. You can set your watch by the things he does at the same time every day.

“It’s clockwork, very regimented. It’s wake up, lunch, a very long bike ride, then he’s at the film set from 6pm.

“He then arrives back at the hotel around 5am. That exercise and work regime would be punishment for a man half his age. It’s real dedication.”

Harrison has been filming the new movie at Bamburgh Castle, near Newcastle.

The film co-stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen.

Meanwhile, Harrison delighted locals in Grosmont, near Whitby, when he went for a costume fitting and took a stroll around town dressed as Indiana Jones.

One source said: "He had to make sure he was comfortable in it so he went for a little walk around.

"It was quite bizarre. He just walked around the village for 15 minutes in costume saying hello to the locals. He stopped off and said hello to the landlord of the pub."

The first Indiana Jones adventure, Raiders of the Lost Ark,turned 40 over the weekend. The untitled sequel, to be directed by James Mangold (Logan), is slated to open in July 2022. — BANG SHOWBIZ
