Behind The Scenes Pics Of David Bowie Filming 'Labyrinth'

The cult status around the 1986 film 'Labyrinth' has grown since the passing of rock superstar David Bowie who played the role of Jareth aka, ‘The Goblin King’

Directed by Muppets creator Jim Henson, the film, while not a huge blockbuster at the time, has endured over the years with it's charming mix of puppetry and live actors.

There is even talk of a musical version of the story and possibly even a film reboot in the next few years.

Now some amazing behind the scenes photos have been released which show Bowie working with Henson and young co-star Jennifer Connelly, as well as an incredible picture of Bowie and his stunt double both in full make up!

Take a look at the images above as well as this behind the scenes video about the making of this timeless fantasy film.
