The time a Bond girl came to Hadleigh
On the 12th and 13th of September 2022, the cast and crew of the film Boudica (currently on Netflix) came to Hadleigh to spend two days filming at the Ironage Roundhouse. I was lucky enough to be involved on both days (lovely to work so close to home!)
Involved in filming on location included Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Hitman, Oblivion), Rita Tushingham (A Taste of Honey, Doctor Zhivago), and James Faulkner (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, X-Men: First Class, three Bridget Jones’s films, Bergerac, Minder, Zulu Dawn). Also on location as a producer was Lucinda Rhodes Thakrar (Harry and Cosh, Cavegirl), and of course the director Jesse V. Johnson (Avengement, Triple Threat, The Debt Collector).
The film has the distinction of being the only film production with a filming location in Hadleigh on the well-known website IMDb. Attached are a handful of screenshots related to the film, including one inside (I’m slightly left of the middle) and three outside shots that include the roundhouse, which was used due to its size and authenticity by the production company.
