Tom Cruise in trouble with the BBC nuns

This time he did it big. He managed to make even the nuns angry. Because in the magical world of cinema and TV, two parallel universes like the one in which they exist Tom Cruise and his action films and that of the BBC period TV series, Love and Life – Call the Midwife, they just collided. Because of the star’s helicopter. And to have the worst is likely to be him. Now, the real Mission: Impossible by Tom Cruise will be able to make peace with the midwives of the Nonnatus House convent.
Tom Cruise ruins the BBC nuns set
Jenny Agutter, who has played Sister Julienne on the series since the first season, said filming on the final season was interrupted multiple times due to Tom Cruise’s helicopter. Which landed and took off from studios in Longcross, Surrey. “Tom Cruise keeps ruining our shots by landing his helicopter right in front of where we’re shooting,” the actress complained in an interview with the tabloid The Mirror.
Agutter said the cast had to re-shoot several scenes because the noise from the star’s helicopter interfered with their stage noises. The actress then joked (but not that much), threatening to take matters into her own hands if the uproar continues. «Present me in my dress! Imagine the scene: “Excuse me, Tom, but we’re trying to film here. I don’t know about her, but I’d get the helicopter out of here quickly!”».
Love and life – Call the Midwife, the series about 50s midwives
Some dispassionate advice to Tom Cruise: never go against Sister Julienne. It is she who rules the Nonnatus House convent. And if everything goes smoothly it’s only thanks to her! Love and Life – Call the Midwife is one of the most popular series of the BBC, aired since 2012. In Italy it was broadcast by Rete 4 and the first 5 seasons are available on Netflix.

Set in the 50s and 60s, it follows the story of some young women who work as midwives in the Nonnatus House convent. Which rises in the East End of London, a poor and degraded neighborhood. Jennifer Lee, protagonist of the series, is the newcomer of the group. And she will be the one to narrate the events in the first person.
The series, in fact, is based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth told in the book Call the midwife (Call the Midwife: A True Story of the East End in the 1950s), the first volume of a trilogy. To give her a voice on TV is Vanessa Redgrave. While among the protagonists of the various seasons the name of the Oscar winner stands out (for the screenplay of A promising woman) Emerald Fennell. Namely the Camilla Parker Bowles of the third and fourth season of The Crown.
Tom Cruise and his umpteenth Mission: Impossible
Tom Cruise, on the other hand, is finishing shooting the eighth chapter of the Mission: Impossible saga. The second part of Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning. Apparently not in the same place where they are filming the new season of Call the midwife. The star has been grappling with yet another adventure of agent Ethan Hunt since before the pandemic broke out. Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning – Part One will be in theaters worldwide on July 14, 2023. And it will see the characters return from Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg And Vanessa Kirby.
