BILL Nighy has been spotted while filming an upcoming film featuring at Worthing Lido.

The British actor, 71, was snapped during the production, shielding himself from the heat with an umbrella.

Donning a black waistcoat and pinstripe trousers, the Love Actually and Pirates of the Caribbean actor was seen sipping a bottle of sparkling water.

Earlier this month, a section of the Lido was shut off to locals.

The images are reported to be from the set of an upcoming film called Living where Bill Nighy plays a 1950s civil servant.

The actor will play Williams, who was tasked with helping to rebuild London after the Second World War.

The film will show Nighy’s character moving to the coast after receiving a life-threatening medical diagnosis, “vowing to make his final days meaningful, only to realise he doesn’t know how”, a statement from the makers of the film said.

The film has been adapted from the Japanese novel Ikiru by author Kazuo Ishiguro.

The film will also feature The Trial Of The Chicago Seven’s Alex Sharp, Mank star Tom Burke and Sex Education’s Aimee Lou Wood.

Producers Stephen Woolley and Elizabeth Karlsen said in a joint statement: “Adding Tom and Alex to our already distinguished cast is a great bonus for us all.

“They are both amazing actors and so perfectly right for the characters of Peter and Sutherland, two very crucial roles in our story.”
