From Tiffani Thiessen, to Melissa Joan Hart and Will Smith, see where these actors first caught the acting bug.

“They’re very much present in the film as characters. In the tragic history of those buildings, this is one glorious and human moment that happened.

I think that’s something that’s important to remember too.” The Walk also stars Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale and Ben Schwartz, and will be released in October 2015.

Some of the biggest names in Hollywood first got their start as '90s TV stars.

Using the latest in state of the art visual effects, 3D and IMAX technology, as well as a massive set construction, Zemeckis and Gordon-Levitt have recreated Petit's historical walk.

The vertigo-inducing trailer for the film, released today on the Telegraph's website, depicts Gordon-Levitt as Petit, standing on top of the World Trade Center, testing the balance of a metal beam.

Given the tragic history of the Twin Towers, it's understandable that many people will feel strange seeing them recreated on film.

But Gordon-Levitt and Zemeckis see The Walk as a tribute to the skyscrapers.

On August 7, 1974, a man named Philippe Petit stepped out on to a high wire, suspended between the Twin Towers of New York's World Trade Center, 1,350 feet above the ground.

He performed there for 45 minutes, making a total of eight passes along the wire.

Man On Wire, a critically acclaimed documentary about Petit, was released in 2008.

Now, Forest Gump director Robert Zemeckis has turned Petit's story into a feature film, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the high wire artist.
