Hollywood actor Tom Cruise made his Instagram debut on 26 January and started with the announcement of his next film, Mission Impossible- Fallout. The actor revealed the title of the upcoming franchise film of Mission Impossible.  The Top Gun star has been updating his fans about the film since then. Recently, Cruise appeared on Graham Norton’s show with his co-stars for Mission Impossible 6, Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill and Simon Pegg.

On the show, the actor opened up about his ankle injury from the sets of MI. Cruise broke his ankle while filming a stunt for the film, he said, “It’s still broken but I’m doing well. It’s not fully healed but we are shooting and we have a release date so I just have to keep going. I spent eight to 10 hours a day, seven days a week in rehab because we still have some major stunts to do.”

Footage from the sets revealed on the show excruciatingly displayed the action scene where Cruise broke his ankle. The actor leaps from a building and unfortunately crashes on a wall. Watch the short clip here:

Tom Cruise explained the incident and said, “I was chasing Henry and was meant to hit the side of the wall and pull myself over but the mistake was my foot hitting the wall. I knew instantly my ankle was broken and I really didn’t want to do it again so just got up and carried on with the take. I said, ‘It’s broken. That’s a wrap. Take me to hospital.’ And then everyone got on the phone and made their vacation arrangements,” the actor said.

Tom Cruise appeared as Ethan Hunt in the very first Mission Impossible film in 1996. The previous installment of the franchise came out in 2015.
