During an evening run, I saw a helicopter parked in the Wembley Stadium car park. It could be heard for the remainder of the night flying quite low (very loud), back and forth, over and over.
Well it turns out, that it was a film crew shooting for the American hit television series “24”.
The scene was for a new season of “24: Live Another Day”. The lead actor Kiefer Sutherland who plays Jack Bauer was hanging out in Wembley, flying a helicopter with the famous arch due to feature in the show.
Kiefer tweeted “Shooting at Wembley Stadium with William Devane. Pretty Awesome. #24LAD “, sharing a pic of him and Devane who plays President of the United States, James Heller :

Other members of the cast on set who also checked-in at Wembley, include lead CIA character Kate Morgan, played by Yvonne Strahovski.
She shared a pic of herself with (from l to r) – CIA Computer Tech Jordan Reed (Giles Matthey), Director of 24 Jon Cassar and CIA Field Operative Erik Ritter (Gbenga Akinnagbe).

Just over a year ago, I caught a glimpse of Vin Deisel filming “Fast and Furious 6” at the national landmark.
You can watch “24: Live Another Day on Sky 1, 7th May”.
