We have added a new HQ photo of Jess filming Jamaica Inn, thanks to Westmorland Gazette for the photo and this nice read.

The wait is over for South Lakeland residents keen to catch a glimpse of themselves or their home town on television. The dates have been announced for the screening of the BBC’s adaptation of Jamaica Inn, which was partly filmed in Kirkby Lonsdale using local people as extras.

“Kirkby Lonsdale looks set to be the quietest town in South Lakeland during Easter week!” said town council chairman Allan Muirhead. “Now we know the transmission dates, you can bet practically everyone in town will be tuning in for three nights’ viewing to see how it all turned out.”

The programme, which saw the town transformed into a 19th Century Cornish village for a week of filming, is set to be shown in three parts from Easter Monday, April 21. It will be shown in hour-long episodes, of which around 15 minutes will of the South Lakeland town’s Market Square, where fake shop fronts and tons of mud were installed to wind back the clock to 1820.

“We didn’t recognise parts of the town used for filming once they’d built false shop fronts,” continued Coun Muirhead. “It will be fun trying to spot ourselves.” The filming took place last October and saw stars Jessica Brown Findlay and Ben Daniels descend with a crew to film exterior shots. The adaptation of the Daphne du Maurier novel saw several residents chosen as extras, while hundreds more turned out to watch filming take place.

“We’ll have to watch very carefully!” added Coun Muirhead. A one-off event is now set to be hosted on Saturday (April 12) when the show’s producer, Dan Winch, will give a talk about ‘the making of Jamaica Inn’. One of the revelations is expected to be why the Cumbrian location was chosen rather than Launceston, where the book is set.

Accepting an invitation from town represenatives, Mr Winch said: “I’m so delighted that you all have fond memories of our visit. “The hard work and planning certainly seemed to pay off. I’d be delighted to visit. “It would be the very least I can do by way of thanks.”

The talk will be held at the Lunesdale Hall and tickets can be bought from the town’s visitor information shop at 24 Main Street.

Wading into the cold Atlantic ocean, waves crashing over her head, her lips slowly turning blue, there were moments when Jessica Brown Findlay feared for her life.

The actress known around the world as Downton Abbey’s elegant Lady Sybil found herself gasping for breath as she filmed the BBC’s gritty new three-part adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn.

Yet despite the danger and discomfort, she was having the time of her life playing headstrong Cornish girl Mary Yellen.

“Filming in the sea was ridiculous,” she tells me, she tells me with her distinctive, throaty laugh.

“It was exhilarating and special because you were able to get to a place so far beyond where it feels ‘pretend’. It was very real and there was a certain level of fear. You were in the sea, everyone disappeared and you may drown.

“The waves were so big – you’d go under and for a few seconds you couldn’t see which way was up.”

Lovely interview with Jess for The Times, plus a new photo added to the gallery…

Still most known for being part of TV’s favourite aristocratic family, Jessica Brown Findlay is busy expanding her range more than a year ago the nation watched in horror as the youngest daughter of the Earl of Grantham, DowntonAbbey’s Lady Sybil Crawley, suddenly died moments after giving birth to her daughter — and only midway through the series. It was harrowing stuff and no less so for the actress who played her, Jessica Brown Findlay, who quit the show at the peak of its success. “It was just this open abyss of unemployment ahead of me,” she says.

The abyss was short-lived. Brown Findlay is now a certifiable star on the rise. This year alone she has four projects lined up, including a role in the film version of Laura Wade’s play Posh, the lead in the new BBC adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn directed by Call the Midwife’s Philippa Lowthorpe and, opening in cinemas tomorrow, a starring role in the romance A New York Winter’s Tale.

Jessica Brown Findlay’s new TV show might be a period drama, but that’s where all comparisons with Downton end. In upcoming BBC series Jamaica Inn – adapted from the novel by Daphne Du Maurier – Brown Findlay will star as feisty heroine Mary Yellan living on a bleak 1820s Cornish coast. The drama, which will air at Easter – will also star Matthew McNulty (The Paradise) and Ben Daniels (House of Cards).

This year is set to be a very busy one for Ms Brown Findlay. In September she’ll appear in the hotly tipped big screen adaptation of the play Posh with Sam Claflin and Douglas Booth (lucky girl), followed by Frankenstein with James McAvoy and TV drama Lullaby with Amy Adams. Welcome back Jessica!

We have added x3 new promotional stills from Jamaica Inn to the galleries …
