Up, up and away! Proof that Bodyguard star Richard Madden’s career is really taking off… as he is seen filming a mid-air stunt with Priyanka Chopra for Amazon’s new spy show Citadel
Bodyguard star Richard Madden offers very close protection to co-star Priyanka Chopra as they soar through the air on the set of their latest blockbuster.
And he showed a daring worthy of 007 himself as he dangled from a harness while filming a different big-budget spy project, Amazon’s forthcoming Citadel series.
Madden, wearing a futuristic khaki outfit, placed his arm protectively around his 38-year-old co-star as they shot their stunts in a Surrey woodland last week.

Ms Chopra, a former Miss World who has enjoyed success in Hollywood and Bollywood, donned a silver and black two-piece for the scene before jumping behind the wheel of a buggy bristling with weaponry.
During a break from filming, the pair were seen giggling as they looked at their phones.
‘They looked like something out of a Marvel action comic in those costumes, but when you saw them laughing like a couple of overgrown teenagers, the penny suddenly dropped that they were unlikely to be saving the world from anything,’ said one bystander.
Citadel, which also stars Stanley Tucci, is described as an ‘action-packed spy series with a compelling emotional centre’.

Posing with a bouquet of flowers for a picture posted on Instagram earlier this month, Ms Chorpa wrote: ‘Day 1 on #Citadel. Thank you team for a sweet welcome! Let’s goooooo!’
The series is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the brothers behind several hit Marvel films, and will feature a number of spin-off productions.
Madden is also set to reprise his Bodyguard role of David Budd. The creator of the 2018 drama, Jed Mercurio, confirmed in January that there will be a sequel, but it is unclear when filming will begin.
