As I entered the building where I work early last week, I walked into the main reception/social area and headed towards the lift – glancing briefly to my left for a split second as I tapped the elevator button. I saw a nicely dressed woman who I thought looked a lot like Nicole Kidman. As I was going up in the elevator my thoughts were flowing pretty fast; ”was that really Nicole Kidman?, nah…couldn’t have been, why would she be here?”.
As the glass paned elevator moved slowly up I had a second glance and it turns out that it actually was Nicole Kidman accompanied by Colin Firth, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Last year I met John Malkovich in Edinburgh’s Royal Mile (2 minutes from my flat) who was promoting one of his friends shows during the festival and last week I was standing 7 meters away from Nicole Kidman.
Both stars, Nicole and Colin, arrived in Edinburgh last week and will be beginning to start filming tomorrow for the 2013 film, ”The Railway Man”. Other sources say they will be in and around Edinburgh, The Lothians and Berwick for the next 10-12 weeks shooting the movie.
