Keeley Hawes oozes 1930s chic while filming scenes for the Durrells in Corfu


She recently starred in the hit series The Bodyguard which has gripped the nation, leaving viewers desperate to find out the real fate of her character Julia Montague, with many suspecting she is still alive after being caught up in an explosion.

However Keeley Hawes looked worlds away from her role as the Home Secretary as she strolled along the sandy shores in a structured pink dress while filming the fourth and final series of The Durrells in Corfu.

The actress, 42, was recently spotted up to her co-star Alexis Georgoulis during a lavish dinner in Kalami, however she appeared to be filming scenes without him on this occasion.

Keeley’s 1930’s number was enhanced with button detailing along the neckline and waist band, it also included a slight pleat at the front of the frock.

The star paired her period look with a pair of Birkenstock-style sandals, while toting a rectangular raffia bag as she boarded a rib at the shore.

She also donned a floppy straw hat with floral applique, her locks were coiffed into a style typical of the era, set perfectly in elegant waves, while adding a vibrant slick of red lipstick.

Keeley, who appeared occupied chatting away on her phone, made her way down to the water to no doubt board the boat to another filming location.

She appeared in high spirits as she spoke to members of the crew, who looked laden with hair and make-up products in case any touch ups were needed.

Keeley, who plays a widowed mother who moves her children to the Greek island, admitted that she and the cast of The Durrells are now recognised by Corfu’s residents after filming three series on the island.

Speaking of the stir filming has caused to locals, Hawes said: ‘People are always very pleased to see us.

‘And now the series has been going for a few years, when people see the production trucks, they know exactly what it is. There’s lots of shouts of, ‘Oh Mrs Durrell, Mrs Durrell!’

She is not the only star of the programme to have noticed an increase in attention on Corfu.

The programme has become loved by audiences for its comforting, family-friendly viewing, but Hawes said the new series addresses fascism and dictatorship in its setting of 1930s Greece.

Hawes said: ‘It deals with all of these issues ahead of the Second World War. And we’re still dealing with them today. It does resonate.’

She added: ‘The Durrells were immigrants to Corfu and were completely welcomed. They had a wonderful time in a period where things were about to become very messy.
