Film Stars say 'Thank You Cornwall'
10:01am 10th August 2012
The Hollywood stars of a new film set around St Austell have said, thank you Cornwall.
Bill Nighy and Sherlock Holmes actress Rachel McAdams have just finished shooting About Time.
It is thought to be a time travel romantic comedy, by the team behind hits like Love Actually.
The cast and crew have been spotted out in local restaurants and walking beaches.
Now director Richard Curtis has been in touch with Pirate FM to tell us it has been the "happiest three weeks of filming" he can remember.
He said: "The house we filmed in Porthpean was exquisite - and Port Loe provided a superb village backdrop as did all the other wonderful locations. But also, the hospitality we received from everyone - the great sense of welcome and high spirits we encountered everywhere have just been remarkable.
"Lots of people working on the film brought their families along, so we were a film unit and a holiday unit and both were equally happy. From the Pirate Party we had in Charlestown, to the sign someone saw in a shop in Fowey saying " Come in, Bill Nighy!" we encountered nothing but humour and helpfulness. We've all left with a love of Cornwall - and just hope that the film is up to to the high standards you all set us."10:01am 10th August 2012
