By Jackie Bell

Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman was spotted walking the streets of Belfast yesterday.

Pictures on social media show The Shawshank Redemption star walking near Brunswick Street, while there are reports he was also spotted at popular tourist attraction The Crown Bar.

Meanwhile, a number of lucky fans managed to get a quick picture with the star as he walked around the Short Strand in east Belfast.

It's understood the actor has a family member studying at university in Northern Ireland, possibly explaining his visit.

Best known for roles in Driving Miss Daisy and The Shawshank Redemption, Freeman (79) has been promoting his latest film Going In Style alongside acting veterans Michael Caine and Alan Arkin.

In a career spanning more than 40 years, Morgan has won many major awards, including an Oscar in 2005.
