In the video, the A-lister could be seen wearing 1950's clothing and a classic old fashioned truck was parked on the street.
Speaking to the local, one of the Black Mirror producers said: “Rye is great for filming these period dramas – it’s like you’re stepping back in time, even before we’ve added the set, props and signs.”
Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones' new production venture Broke And Bones landed in the popular tourist town on Monday to build the set for filming on Wednesday and Thursday.
And at least one scene in Black Mirror series six is set in the fictional shop, Al's Bait and Tackle, which can be seen in pictures of Rye.
Al's Bait and Tackle is actually a real-life cafe called The Old Grain Store.
An insider said: "Parking bays were suspended and film crew began clearing the road of anything that identified the place as an English town.

"We saw American road signs going up and crates of boxes and fishing nets being unloaded around the cafe opposite Mermaid Street.
"They made the cafe look like an angling shop and turned the antiques shop into a book shop. Everyone could see what was happening, it was all very exciting. Then Aaron Paul and Kate Mara arrived and we knew it was for Black Mirror."
It's good news for fans as not much else is known about the highly anticipated series, which first hit screens in 2011.
They've waited three years for news of the dystopian show to return after writer and creator Brooker stated he didn't think Black Mirror would be appealing amid a global pandemic.
Miley Cyrus, Andrew Scott (A.K.A Fleabag’s Hot Priest), Michaela Cole and more starred in the three episodes of series five.
Fans were blown away by the series calling it “terrifying”, “beyond creepy” and even claiming it stopped them from sleeping.
A release date for series six is yet to be announced though it is believed it will air on the streaming service early next year.
The Sun has contacted Netflix for comment.
