Yesterday she was seen carrying her young twins Knox and Vivienne on set, but today Angelina Jolie was treated to a visit by two of her older children Pax and Shiloh.

The two youngsters were spotted wandering the Maleficent set in Buckinghamshire accompanied by a minder, and were no doubt looking forward to seeing their famous mother.

It is unknown where the rest of Angelina's brood was, but Pax, eight and six-year-old Shiloh made the most of their time in the unfamiliar surroundings and appeared to be having a good look around.

Shiloh – who is Angelina's and Bard's eldest biological child – was dressed in her typical boyish attire of black shorts, a baggy checked shirt and dark shoes.

The blonde-haired child trailed behind Pax and the male minder glancing at the trailers.

Pax looked like an official member of the film crew as he wore a pass around his neck and held hands with the minder.

The young pair were probably making their way over to a nearby field where Angelina was visited by her young twins yesterday.

Twins Vivienne and Knox were brought on to the set to spend some quality time with their mother on a break from scenes.

She may have still been dressed in character with large horns jutting out of her head, but the youngsters seemed unaffected by their mother's bizarre get-up.

Angelina was seen cuddling her children as she carried them through the grassy surroundings.

Jolie looked pleased to see the twins and happily chatted away as her son and daughter were watched by a number of minders.

The actress rarely plays a villain in any of her films but it seems that looking scary comes easy to her, although her children didn't seem to notice.

Angelina was earlier spotted filming more scenes for upcoming movie Maleficent today, and fans may be shocked to see a different side to the Hollywood star.

Dressed in full costume and made up perfectly, Jolie can be seen striding through a field in Buckinghamshire as she glares at the camera.

Wearing her horned headdress, complete with prosthetic cheekbones and a long brown dress and matching cape, the dark-haired star looked frightening as the villain.

It is clearly a role that suits Jolie well, and even in between takes as she spoke with members of the film crew, the actress kept a serious look on her face and appeared to stay in character.

To add to the dramatic effect of the scary scenes, large wind machines were seen on set and blew the actresses cape in the air as she stalked towards the camera.

Members of the crew were also on hand to shelter Jolie from the unpredictable British weather and were seen hovering nearby with a black umbrella.

A lookalike – who was wearing the exact same costume as the actress – was also seen accompanying her, but this isn't the first time she has been on set.

Despite looking like she could be a stunt double, Jolie was spotted taking part in the risky scenes herself and was placed in a harness to perform her own stunts.

The mother-of-six stars as the title character – the evil Maleficent – in the upcoming film which is a real-life version of the Disney cartoon Sleeping Beauty.

The focus of the film centres on the events that hardened Maleficent's heart, leading her to curse the baby Aurora who will be played by Elle Fanning.

Speaking about her new film Angelina told EW: 'It’s not anti-princess, but it’s the first time they’re looking at this epic woman.

'I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities'

She said: 'It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that’s good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you’re saying they should be a villain. [Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect.

'In general, it’s a very good message to say, “Let’s look at something from the other side.” But then also, what our challenge will be – and the script writer [The Lion King and Alice in Wonderland’s Linda Woolverton] has already cracked it – is not to simplify it, not to just reverse the story but tell a bigger story that doesn’t point the finger [at Princess Aurora] either.'

The film is being directed by Robert Stromberg and is set for release on March 14, 2014.
