Rutland and Stamford Mercury
19 Apr 2010
Life on Mars actor John Simm was in town today to film his latest drama.
Scottish actress Shirley Henderson, with other cast members and crew, was also in the High Street in Stamford today for the filming of Seven Days which follows the relationship between a man imprisoned for drug smuggling and his wife.
The film, directed by Michael Winterbottom for Channel 4, is being shot over the course of five years so the characters age and is due to be screened in about two years.
Scenes were also shot for the drama in the summer of last year at Stocken Prison, Oakham.
Melissa Parmenter, one of the producers, said: “We filmed in Stamford to portray a day trip out.
“It has been very good here, apart from the weather.”
