He popped into Pride and Provenance for lunch and, later, was seen again leaving The Piece Hall.

The historic venue has been shut for a week and transformed into a film set for the making of the six-part Marvel show, which will be screened on Disney Plus.

Other cast members are thought to include Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Killian Scott, Christopher McDonald and Carmen Ejogo.

There is still plenty of activity around The Piece Hall today, with people carrying set and filming equipment into the historic building, a huge light positioned overhead, and lots of trucks and other vehicles parked up.
