Tom Cruise is among the actors who will be allowed to enter the UK from the US without quarantining.
Following a discussion between Cruise and the UK Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden, an exemption to coronavirus travel rules has been granted to the cast and crew of Hollywood blockbusters travelling to the UK for work.
This will allow filming on Cruise’s "Mission: Impossible 7" to resume at Warner Bros Studios in the coming months without its stars being required to self-isolate for 14 days.
Dowden said: “The world’s biggest blockbusters and high-end TV shows are made in Britain. Our creativity, expertise and highly successful tax reliefs for our screen industries means that we are an in demand location that in turn delivers a great return for our economy.
“We want the industry to bounce back and exempting small numbers of essential cast and crew from quarantine is part of our continued commitment to getting cameras rolling safely again.”
