Indiana Jones filming in Glasgow: Phoebe-Waller Bridge spotted in Ashton Lane

Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been spotted in Ashton Lane as filming for the new Indiana Jones film kicks off in Glasgow.

The Fleabag and Solo: A Star Wars Story star was spotted by an eagle-eyed fan after “having a bite” earlier in the evening.

Dale Andrew’s Twitter post includes a photo of the 36-year-old rising from the table outside Jinty McGinty’s with a companion as well as photos of the ensemble in the downtown area.

It is understood that the actor may have had dinner at Ubiquitous Chip. The restaurant currently uses seating outside the pub, which is currently closed. (Good taste, if you ask us.)

Waller-Bridge was also seen Wednesday afternoon ahead of filming scenes on Cochrane Street next to the City Chambers. She appeared to be in full ’60s character, dressed in flares, a velvet jacket, beret, and sunglasses.

Several streets were transformed in the United States for the fifth film in the franchise starring Harrison Ford, 79.

The town’s St Vincent Street was decorated with stars and stripes for the parade stage, which featured pipers playing Scotland The Brave and a marching band behind.

Ford’s body double rode past the parade, with Holbrook’s double behind on a vintage motorcycle.

A float involved in the parade featured the words “Apollo 11”, with other references to the astronauts suggesting that part of the film could be set in 1969.

Several takes were filmed this morning after rehearsals for the parade took place earlier this week in a parking lot in Govan, near Ibrox Stadium.

Crowds gathered at both ends of St Vincent Street – and side streets along the parade route – to get a glimpse of the action.

Film director James Mangold – who also directed The Greatest Showman, Le Mans ’66 and Logan, which starred Holbrook – was pictured in Glasgow on set alongside other members of the team this week.

The shoot has so far featured several hundred extras, but the film’s other main stars include Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Shaunette Renee Wilson, and Toby Jones.

Filming will take place on Trongate, Montrose Street, Bothwell Street and Blythswood Street throughout the month.

Vehicles will not be permitted to travel along the M8 Kingston Bridge exit ramp to Bothwell Street from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. between July 26 and 28.
