Belfast Live shared some pics from the set of The Lost City of Z that filmed at Strangford Lough earlier this week and gave us a peek at Charlie Hunnam as Percy Fawcett.
From Belfast Live:
A local source said:
“To have those Hollywood names right here in our village is amazing and we’re very proud of our heritage and our lough.
“I don’t know how Brad Pitt copes with it. Every time his name is mentioned, the women all go a bit mad. They all squeal and start giggling. He must be some fella.
“The film crew drove in under darkness, a whole cavalcade of them along the Newtownards Rd until they got to the big farm house.
“People were doing a bit of star spotting but the weather put paid to that and everyone cleared off.
“But fair play to all the people working on the film. They worked through rain and wind and it was pretty fresh too. They worked late into the night on Tuesday with big spotlights keeping the wee cottage alight.
“We’re used to the changing weather here but I’m sure some of those London ones or the Americans wondered what they’d come to, especially because it’s August.
“A lot of the riggers and the lads looking after the equipment were from Northern Ireland and they just got stuck in.
“But they all had to be careful about the tide so that the actors and equipment didn’t get stuck on the island.
“It’s a causeway until the water comes in and when it comes in, it’s fast. I think the speed of it took them by surprise on the first day although they’d been given advice by locals about the tidal times.”
