IT WAS confirmed last month that Hollywood royalty Tom Hanks and renowned producer Steven Spielberg would be filming their latest production in Oxfordshire.

Masters of the Air, a world-war two mini-series set to launch on Apple TV, is being filmed at Dalton Barracks military base, near Abingdon.

But who is starring in the TV show and what actors could be spotted in this small Oxfordshire town?

Northern Irish Actor, Anthony Boyle, who rose to fame when he played Scorpius Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on the West End, will take a leading role.

Austin Butler, who has starred in films like ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’, and Callum Turner, who recently starred in ‘Emma’, are also two of the main characters.

The TV show, based on Donald L Miller’s book, is going to be a follow-up to the Emmy-award-winning Second World War mini-series, Band of Brothers and The Pacific.

The series will focus on the 100th Bombardment Group (a unit of the US Air Force) who were based in Thorpe Abbotts in Suffolk during the war.

Each character is based on a real-life member of the 100th Bombardment group.

Boyle will play Major Harry Crosby, who was the lead navigator for the 100th Bomb Group.

Butler has been cast to play Major Gale Cleven and Turner will play Major John Egan.

Jude Law's son, Rafferty or ‘Raff’ Law has also landed himself in a major role, playing Sgt. Ken Lemmons - the flight chief of the bombardment group.

An anonymous source, who is working on the set, said: “I have met most of them, although you are not encouraged to talk to them and most of the time you can’t anyway as they’re busy – especially Austin Butler and Callum Turner.

“I have talked to Raff Law a few times, and he is such a cool guy, you might think he would be stuck-up, being Jude Law's son, but he is not at all.”

The on-set worker said he had not seen Spielberg, but there were rumours Hanks was on set last week.

The production is also being directed by several acclaimed directors.

This includes Cary Joji Fukunaga, who directed the latest James Bond film ‘No Time To Die’.

The other directors, who will lead different episodes, are filmmaking duo Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who directed ‘Captain Marvel’, as well as Dee Rees, who directed ‘Mudbound’.

A source on set has also said it has been suggested that Hanks will direct the final episode of the mini-series himself.
