Keeley Hawes is to star in Bodyguard
FILM crews were shooting scenes for a new BBC drama starring Keeley Hawes in Highgate this week.
Production units working on Bodyguard – a political thriller – were set up outside a flat in Stoneleigh Terrace. Passers-by were reassured that any gunfire noise they may hear was simply effects from replica firearms. Signs read: ‘Don’t be alarmed’.
Producers paid a donation to Brookfield School to use its playground at the weekend. The new show has been written by Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio.
