Lily James seen on set of new film after Dominic West scandal

Lily James was seen filming for her new movie What’s Love Got To Do With It? in London earlier this week, after she was pictured kissing and cuddling married actor Dominic West last October.

The screen star, 31 – who has rarely been seen in public since the images of her and Dominic, 51, emerged – was joined by her co-star Shazad Latif, 32, as they shot scenes at a matrimonial advice bureau.

While details about the upcoming film are being kept under wraps, the romantic comedy, written and produced by Jemima Goldsmith, is said to be based on a cross-cultural relationship set between the English capital and South Asia.

Cutting a casual figure, the actress was dressed in a khaki green jacket, teamed with a grey sweatshirt, baggy jeans and leather boots.

The Guildhall School of Music and Drama alum appears to take on the role of a photographer in the film as she held onto a professional camera.

The blonde was in great spirits as she filmed with Spooks star Shazad, who put on a dapper display in a navy jacket and a grey scarf.

In between takes, the Just William star sipped on a warm beverage from Costa and engaged in conversation with crew members.

According to Deadline, the Downton Abbey star is starring in the Working Titles production with Star Trek: Discovery’s Shazad and award-winning screenwriter Emma Thompson.

It is currently unclear which roles Lily and her co-stars Shazad and Emma, 61, portray in What’s Love Got To Do With It, which is being directed by Shekhar Kapur. 

The plot is believed to take inspiration from documentary producer Jemima’s marriage to Pakistan’s current Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The filmmaker, 46, and the former cricketer, 68, were married from 1995 until 2004, with the sportsman revealing their divorce was down to Jemima’s inability to adapt to his political life.

Lily has kept a low-profile since she became the subject of worldwide scrutiny when images emerged showing her and Dominic enjoying an al fresco lunch with their mutual agent, Angharad Wood. 

They enjoyed a two-day vacation in Italy where they were seen riding on a scooter through Rome, and Dominic appeared to at one point lean over and kiss Lily’s neck. 

A source told MailOnline the thespians spent two nights in a suite at the top Hotel De La Ville with a panoramic view over the city and just at two minutes walk from the Spanish steps.

Just days later, Dominic defiantly defended his marriage to wife Catherine FitzGerald, with the pair staging a photo opportunity outside their Wiltshire home and telling reporters: ‘Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together.’ 

TV and film star Lily previously dated The Crown star Matt Smith, 38, on and off for five years, with the relationship said to be over just weeks before she was pictured with Dominic.  

The brunette has raised eyebrows in the past by forging close friendships with her co-stars in recent productions – Armie Hammer in Rebecca and Dominic in BBC drama The Pursuit Of Love.

Lily has also been hit with claims that she grew close to her married Rebecca co-star Armie, with their alleged off-camera chemistry prompting gossip on the set that they had become an item. 

After the emergence of the lunch images, the stage star pulled out of a series of promotional appearances to plug Rebecca and has remained silent on the scandal ever since. 

The media personality also cancelled interviews with the Today show in America and an episode of The Graham Norton Show. 

The Surrey native made her first TV appearance following the controversy on the Jimmy Fallon show without co-star Armie to discuss their film, while addressing  Mamma Mia 3! rumours.

However broadcaster Jimmy, 46, did not broach the scandalous subject about Dominic. In The Pursuit Of Love, Dominic appears as the bullying and eccentric Uncle Matthew. 

In an interview with The Guardian conducted before the dalliance in Italy, Lily said she had known her co-star for ‘a really long time’ since they appeared together in a Shakespeare play a decade ago. 

Speaking of his role in their latest venture, the Cinderella star added: ‘He’s a brilliant Uncle Matthew, another mad sort of character. 

‘I have a great line in it where I say, “Matthew is frightening and I disapprove of him, but I feel he sets the bar for English manhood.” What a great line.’

It was reported last year that Dominic’s wife Catherine has held crisis talks with her family over the future of her marriage. 

Landscaper Catherine, 49, was said to have been left devastated when the images emerged, yet two days later, the couple defended their marriage in a smug photo opportunity outside their Wiltshire home. 

Despite their display, insiders claimed Catherine, who shares four children with the actor, travelled to her home in County Limerick, Ireland, where she was deciding the future of her marriage. 

Earlier this month, messages about rape fantasies, BDSM and cannibalism Armie, 34, allegedly sent to a woman were leaked.
