‘The world’s biggest blockbusters and high-end TV shows are made in Britain,’ Dowden explained, nodding to the seventh and eighth installments of the hit spy films being shot in Hertfordshire.

Tom first became involved in the Church Of Scientology in the early 1990s through his first wife Mimi Rogers, and has since been one of the religion’s most outspoken advocates. 

Scientologists believe that humans are immortal beings with an infinite number of past lives, some of which could be in extraterrestrial cultures.

The Church also rejects psychiatry, believing they ­interfere with the rational mind, for which Tom sparked earned backlash in 2004 when he refuted the use of psychiatric drugs to treat post-natal depression.

Members of the church are also thought to be huge supporters of Tom’s film career and his box office success, thought it’s thought his faith caused rifts in his marriages to actresses Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes.
