Dublin city was transformed into the 19th century over the weekend with Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto taking centre stage as she filmed scenes for her latest movie.

The Hollywood actress was photographed in period costume but carrying a very modern plastic water bottle as she filmed in Dublin Castle yesterday.

Parts of Dublin and Kildare have this week been turned into scenes from 1800s England for a new movie, Mr Malcolm's List, being shot here.

The film is based on the novel by Suzanne Alani about a young woman in England who enlists the help of her friend to get revenge on a suitor who rejected her for failing a requirement of his list.

Among the stars of the new movie is Divergent heartthrob Theo James,.

Indian-born actress Freida rose to prominence in Slumdog Millionaire, for which she received several nominations as Best Supporting Actress.

The star, whose biggest commercial role has been in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, brandished a water canister during a break in filming, while production staff wore masks.

Also starring in the movie is Emily In Paris actress Ashley Park.

The American memorably played Emily's sidekick Mindy Chen in the Netflix series.

Ashley was captured in full period costume in one picture posted on Instagram alongside actor Sope Dirisu, who plays Mr Malcolm.

English actor Theo (36) is best known for portraying Tobias "Four" Eaton in The Divergent Series film trilogy

In 2015, he became the brand ambassador for Hugo Boss fragrances for men, appearing in print ads and commercials.

James recently married Irish actress Ruth Kearney, with whom he has been in a relationship since 2009, having initially met at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

Although Ruth was born in London to Irish parents she moved to Dublin at the age of five and grew up in Monkstown.

She is best known for her leading role as Jess Parker in the science fiction-drama Primeval, while she has also starred as Daisy in The Following.

Mr Malcolm's List also stars The Invisible Man's Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Lord Cassidy).

Directed by Emma Holly Jones, fans have been travelling to Celbridge, Co. Kildare, to try and grab a glimpse of Theo James in particular.

Fans got a glimpse of all the action as filming took place earlier in the week at one of Kildare's landmark buildings, Castletown House.

Mr Malcolm's List is based on the novel of the same name written by Suzanne Alani, who also wrote the script.

"Julia is a society lady jilted by London's most eligible bachelor, Mr Malcolm, when she fails to meet one of the items on his list of requirements for a bride.

"Feeling shunned and humiliated, she enlists her friend Selina to help her take revenge on Mr Malcolm by tricking him into thinking he has found his perfect match," according to the Irish Film and Television Network.

A fan under the name Bellawherehaveyoubeenloca took to TikTok with footage of Theo on set in Castletown.

The video has gone viral with over 300,000views and 62,000 likes.
