The actor – favourite to become the next James Bond – was among worried audience members and staff checking on her as she regained consciousness.

And in another act of chivalry, the Hollywood star then escorted her to an ambulance, The Mirror reports.

Amanda, an illustrator for Salford, suffers regular seizures due to a mystery undiagnosed condition.

She was taken to hospital for a check-up and was later released.

She said: “I would love to thank him personally, but doubt I will cross paths with him – he’s very famous.”
