SETS JUDI DENCH AS KENNETH BRANAGH'S GRANDMOTHER
According to Belfast Telegraph Kenneth Branagh is secretly shooting a new movie BELFAST based on his own childhood with Judi Dench playing his grandmother, Ciaran Hinds his grandad, Jamie Dornan playing his father and Caitriona Balfe his mother. The semi
autobiographical film inspired by his early childhood growing up in Northern Ireland surrounded by a large extended family, will see Jude Hill playing him as a young boy in the late 1960s. He visited his grandparents twice a week, but when he was nine, his dad, a joiner, and mum, who worked in a chip shop, moved to Reading, Berkshire, to escape the tumult in Northern Ireland.
