Colin Farrell and Viggo Mortensen fly under the radar as they step out on the Gold Coast – after jetting Down Under to film Ron Howard’s Thirteen Lives

They travelled to Queensland, Australia, last month to film Ron Howard’s new blockbuster Thirteen Lives.

And actors Colin Farrell, 44, and Viggo Mortensen, 62, were spotted on the Gold Coast on Monday as they stepped out for a leisurely stroll in-between filming.

The actors attempted to fly under the radar as they strolled down the footpath separately, with Viggo concealing his famous face behind sunglasses and a hat.

He completed his look with a black jacket, blue T-shirt and jeans. 

Irish-born Colin, meanwhile, showed off his bulging biceps in a dark blue T-shirt and baggy black trackpants.  

He clutched a brown leather bag and a white envelope – perhaps containing a copy of his script.

Production on Thirteen Lives began in March, with the Gold Coast hinterland doubling for the film’s location of Thailand. 

The film will tell the story of the dramatic 2018 rescue of 12 young boys and their soccer coach after they ventured deep into a cave which later became flooded.

Production is expected to inject more than $96million into the local economy, and create jobs for 435 cast and crew members, as well as an additional 3,400 background actors.
