Hollywood superstar Emily Blunt took some time out from filming her latest movie to visit an Irish drama group in Co Mayo.
The British actress was in Ireland working on her 2019 film, Wild Mountain Thyme, where she appears opposite Northern Irish heart-throb Jamie Dornan.
During some of the downtime from filming, Blunt paid a visit to the Kilmoremoy Drama Group where the kids were rehearsing for their production of ‘Into the Woods’.
Having acted in the screen version of the play, Blunt was happy to offer some tips and advice to the young actors.
Jack Cronin, 15, is the founder of the Kilmoremoy Drama Group, and when his father heard Emily Blunt was in town, he approached her and asked if she would pay them a visit.
The Girl on the Train star was more than happy to oblige.
Jack described the surreal experience. He said: “She was very good and very kind.
“She was talking to all the kids and took photos with them all and asked to see another scene from the show. She spent about half an hour with us altogether.”
Blunt’s latest movie Wild Mountain Thyme is the film adaptation of the play Outside Mullingar written by John Patrick Shanley. The play had a successful run on Broadway in 2014.
It is not the first time Blunt has been happy to mingle with the locals whilst working on the film.
