Ex­cite­ment as town cen­tre be­comes film set

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - LOCAL | NEWS -

Hol­ly­wood ar­rived in a sleepy High­land town as Kathie Lee Gif­ford and Craig Ferguson filmed new ro­man­tic com­edy Love Me To Death in and around lo­cal shops.

The peo­ple of Lochgilp­head in Ar­gyll were de­lighted when the film crew ar­rived and turned their town cen­tre into a movie set.

Film­ing has also taken place at Tar­bet by Loch Lomond and it is un­der­stood a wed­ding scene is due to be filmed in In­ver­aray to­day. Gif­ford is the host of the To­day show in Hol­ly­wood and Ferguson stars in The Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Love Me To Death fol­lows Annabelle, played by Gif­ford, a lonely widow who plans a trip around the world with her hus­band’s ashes in tow to visit the places they loved in the movies. When she ar­rives at the Inn in Loch Lomond, run by a grumpy, stub­born Scots­man, played by Ferguson, the first stop on the jour­ney changes her life for­ever.

A fam­ily se­cret is re­vealed, one wed­ding is de­railed, an­other is planned, and two un­likely peo­ple get a sec­ond chance at love.

Lochgilp­head carer Louise Bradley, 29, cap­tured im­ages of Gif­ford film­ing out­side The Stag Ho­tel in Lochgilp­head.

Miss Bradley, 29, said: “The whole of the Lorne Street car park was full of cars, vans, lor­ries and tech­ni­cal peo­ple.

“Roads were get­ting shut for short pe­ri­ods of time to al­low film­ing to take place.

“There was a ma­jor buzz about the town.

“A lot of the lo­cals were very ex­cited about it, but some seemed to­tally obliv­i­ous to what was go­ing on.

“A few walked right through the set dur­ing film­ing, it was quite funny!

“E v e r y o n e i n Lochgilp­head can’t wait to see the film.”
