Pictures show Michael Caine filming at Camber Sands beach IG News

Irshadgul News report,

A bartender has said it is “a privilege” to serve Sir Michael Caine behind the scenes of his new film, shot in Sussex.

The Italian Job and Batman star was seen on Camber Sands in the Rye before his lead role as Hov veteran Bernard Jordan in The Great Escaper.

Ali Burt has been working at The Dunes Bar Beachfront Bar & Restaurant for the past two days and was thrilled to meet the veteran movie star.

He shared several photos of Michael with the staff at the restaurant and enjoying coffee outside.

Ali said: “What a privilege it is to work at The Dunes Bar that we have been behind the scenes for two days meeting Sir Michael Caine and for crew and course meetings.”

The Great Escaper Hove tells the story of war veteran Bernard Jordan.

Bernard fled his care home in Furze Hill to attend the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France, in 2014.

He became a national sensation after launching a search for a missing person when he left the care home for an unannounced commemoration.

Bernard was a long-serving councilor and former mayor.

Earlier, 89-year-old Michael was seen in a wheelchair on the beach in Camber and in a divided street for filming.

He was seen wearing a flat cap and wearing a medal.

In film he will reunite with actress Glenda Jackson, 86, who stars as Bernard’s wife Irene, 47 years later, in The Romantic Englishwoman.

War hero Bernard, who made front page news around the world and received thousands of cards after escaping from his care home, died in 2015 at the age of 90.

In July 2014, he was made an honorary alderman of the city for his 23 years serving as Hove city councillor, as well as serving as mayor from 1995 to 1996.
