STAR WARS actor actor Ewan McGregor has filmed at some impressive locations across the galaxy but his latest role saw him at the more familiar surroundings of Hampstead Garden Suburb's Free Church on Tuesday.

The star of Trainspotting, Shallow Grave and Moulin Rouge was on set for his new movie 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen' at the church in Central Square alongside his co-star Emily Blunt.

Despite the wet August the production team still weren't taking any chances bringing along their rain machine suspended high up above the square on a crane.

The Scottish actor plays Dr Alfred Jones, a fisheries scientist, whose banal, salmon and trout-orientated life becomes reluctantly embroiled in a project to bring fishing to the highlands of Yemen. The film, based on a satirical novel by Paul Torday, also stars Kristin Scott Thomas and is set for release in 2012.
