Over the weekend, pictures surfaced of Blake Lively looking totally unrecognisable as she filmed for her new movie in Dublin’s city centre.
The 30-year-old, who will play assassin Stephanie Patrick in upcoming spy thriller The Rhythm Section, has been in Ireland for the past two weeks with her husband Ryan Reynolds and their two daughters James and Ines.
And over the weekend, the Gossip Girl star finally started filming – and she looked totally different, dressed down in a blue beanie, a grey winter coat and burgundy trousers as she was filmed smoking a cigarette outside a fast food restaurant.
Last night, the actress was spotted filming more scenes on Dublin’s Henry Street, take a look at Goss.ie‘s exclusive clip:
An onlooker told Goss.ie, “There was a huge crowd gathered around the set, with people keen to catch a glimpse of Blake.”
“The audience didn’t seem to faze Blake at all, she was a total pro. In between takes she was chatting with the crew, and was even smiling towards the crowd.
“They filmed scenes of her walking down Henry Street before sitting down inside the GPO arcade. There was a tonne of extras for the shot.”
The Rhythm Section is a female global espionage thriller, which is being produced by the makers of the Bond movies, and directed by The Handmaid’s Tale director/exec producer Reed Morano.
The Rhythm Section will be the movie adaption of the first book in Mark Burnell’s four-part series, and the story follows the lead character, Stephanie Patrick, whose life is ruined when her family are all killed in a plane crash that she was meant to be on.
However, she then discovers that the plane crash wasn’t an accident, and turns into a deadly assassin – determined to take revenge on the people responsible.
Parts of the US, the UK, Spain, and Switzerland will also record scenes for the thriller.
With three other books in the series, producers are hoping the film will follow in the footsteps of the James Bond films and turn into a franchise.
