Matthew Macfadyen: ‘Ripper Street’ Filming Moves to North Great George's Street 23 May 2013 : By Kevin Cronin (IFTN)
Dublin’s North Great George's Street witnessed dramatic scenes of ‘Ripper Street’ season two filming this week, with one character getting thrown from a window and impaled through the leg on a railing.
By contrast, cast and crew members - including stars Matthew Macfadyen, Jerome Flynn and Adam Rothenberg - were in high spirits, and a crash mat was laid under the scene of the wounded police detective (and uninjured stuntman) left hanging upside down.
Bafta-nominated for Best Drama series earlier this month, ‘Ripper Street’ returned to Clancy Barracks at the end of April for principal photography on its second 8-part series before moving to the Natural History Museum on Merrion Row and other Dublin locations in the weeks since.
The Whitechapel-set crime thriller, set in the aftermath of the Jack the Ripper killings in 1889, will wrap filming in Dublin on 31st August and return to BBC screens in 2014.
