Lately he's been busy battling zombies, but on Thursday Brad Pitt stepped into the role of real-life rescuer.

The actor, 47, was shooting his new movie World War Z in Glasgow, Scotland, where more than 700 extras were packed into George Square to film chaotic scenes of a terrifying zombie invasion. But the terror turned real when a female extra slipped amid the trampling crowd.

"I don't think she could believe it when Brad picked her up," a set insider told The Scottish Sun. "He didn't have time to speak to her as it was mid-shoot. But she said afterwards how grateful she was, despite having a badly-grazed knee."

When he hasn't been busy shooting, Pitt has been enjoying the Scottish countryside with partner Angelina Jolie and their six kids, who are staying in a rented country estate that includes a 16th-century mansion.

The family is expected to remain in Scotland until Pitt wraps filming on World War Z in the next few weeks.
