Waller-Bridge, who is best known for her creative and starring role on Fleabag, was most recently seen as Helena Shaw in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, the fifth film in the adventure franchise.

In an exclusive interview with Digital Spy, Waller-Bridge spoke about a special moment from filming, revealing: “It was walking into the tomb at the end, and the detail, and the grandeur of it. The walls were wet and dripping, and there were these beautiful artefacts everywhere.

“The lighting was stunning. It was truly huge. They build these sets, so it's an experience when you walk in. It's 360 [degrees]. I remember walking in there, and my character was meant to walk in and just look at everything in awe. And, my God, I did – I really got a chill.”

The star also spoke about the moment where her character landed a punch on Harrison Ford’s iconic adventurer, telling Entertainment Weekly: “It's such a brilliant cut, and it's such an excellently scripted moment, particularly because there's so much fighting and left hooks.

“All that stuff [is] all the way through the film, but to level a punch to the hero of the film... It was glorious, because it was so funny. Underneath, it really had heart and emotion. And that's really a testament to [director James Mangold] and the Butterworths [Jez and John-Henry] for writing a moment like that.”

There is no release date for A Big Bold Beautiful Journey.
