He was joined by Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise for the premiere of the film at the BFI Imax in Central London.

The cast were in London for the first of three world premieres of Edge of Tomorrow – a sci-fi thriller in which soldiers fight off an alien attack, only to be killed and then forced to relive the battle over and over again.

They were visiting London, Paris and New York all within 24 hours to fit in with the theme of the movie.

Tom Cruise thanked fans for making an early start to join them – he arrived just before 7am and fans had been waiting since sunrise.

He said the cast were “really excited” about the triple premiere and had “a lot of fun working” on the film.

Jonas Armstrong, 33, plays a character named Stringer in the film, and has also starred in TV dramas such as The Street, The Whale, Prisoners’ Wives and The Field of Blood.

Last year, the former Arnold School pupil appeared alongside veteran actor Ben Kingsley in the film Walking With The Enemy, based on a true story about the German occupation of Hungary in the Second World War. Jonas starred as Elek Cohen, who steals an SS uniform and poses as an officer to find out the fate of his family and rescue other Jews.
