Stunt horseman Jacob Martin from Lanton, Jedburgh appears in the forthcoming $100million Hollywood blockbuster, Cloud Atlas, directed by the

team behind the Matrix films.

The horse cabaret performer with Les Amis d’Onno, pictured during a demonstration at Spittal, Berwick-upon-Tweed, is part of the stunt team and is thrown from a roof. Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugh Grant, the film will be in UK cinemas early next year.
