Alexander Skarsgard & Florence Pugh Film ‘The Little Drummer Girl’ In Greece [PHOTOS]
Alexander Skarsgard and Florence Pugh were spotted filming their upcoming spy drama The Little Drummer Girl for BBC on Thursday,
The two were pictured getting close together as they were shooting some romantic scenes for the show at the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, Greece. The actors were in full costume while sitting in the vintage red car.
Skarsgard, who plays Becker in the series, can be seen from the car wearing a bright orange knit top with a pair of gradient lens aviator sunglasses. He completed the look with a silver chain around his neck.
Pugh, who was on the passenger side of the car, can be seen wearing a blue seventies-styled dress. She plays the lead role of the left-wing actress, Charlie, who is also Becker’s love interest in the series.
There were doubts where or not the series could be filmed on the ancient site near Athens, however the access ban to the 2,500-year-old Temple of Poseidon was reversed and the cast and crew took the opportunity to film on location.
The Little Drummer Girl is a six-part series that takes place in the late 1970s. It is based off the book of the same name written by John Le Carre. He also wrote The Night Manager, which was also a successful BBC adaption.
The show follows the story of the actress Charlie as she meets an intriguing stranger, Becker, while on vacation in Greece, but it later becomes evident that his intentions are far from a romantic relationship. Becker turns out to be an Israeli intelligence officer who gets her mixed up in a high stakes plot.
An exact date for the series’s release has not been announced yet, however is expected to premiere later this year.
