Glenn Close has been pictured in a bowler hat and suit filming her new movie Albert Nobbs on location in Dublin.

The Fatal Attraction star co-wrote the big screen adaptation of her award-winning stage performance in The Singular Life Of Albert Nobbs about a woman in 19th century Ireland who disguises herself as a man in order to work as a butler to survive.

Glenn is filming in Dublin's Iveagh Gardens, along with Alice In Wonderland star Mia Wasikowska and many extras in period costume.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Brendan Gleeson and Maria Doyle Kennedy have been cast alongside a host of international names including veteran actresses Pauline Collins and Janet McTeer and young rising star Aaron Johnson.

Glenn, who has a small budget of just six million euro, said last month it was her dream to shoot the film in Ireland.

She said: "It is a real trick to bring off a movie, a period movie, on the budget that we have, but so far so good.

"At one point we were thinking of filming in Hungary, eastern Germany, Montreal in Canada.

"We've been all over the place but I'm really happy that we're here because this is where it should be."

The 63-year-old actress has revealed she was so moved by the role she has spent the last 15 years trying to get the movie, directed by Rodrigo Garcia, off the ground.
