Starring… Islington

There have been loads of great TV shows and films shot in Islington, since FilmFixer began managing the Islington Film Office. Here are some of the highlights.
Star-studded thriller Unlocked opens tomorrow night, putting London at the heart of an international terror plot. Londoners welcomed Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom as they capered about for the action-packed film in late 2014 and early 2015
Their Finest
War romance Their Finest premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, and has now opened on general release in the UK, bringing humour and warmth to the days of London in the blitz. One of the most dramatic scenes, shot in Islington’s St John Street, Gemma Arterton is seen walking past a dress boutique, which is hit by a bomb. In an eerie scene, she walks among mannequins scattered around the pavement, before coming across a dead body in the wreckage.
Around Mountgrove Herrick, Wyatt and Canning Roadsin Islington we were filming dramatic riots set in early 1970s west London.
Thierry Henry, Gatorade advert
Arsenal’s record goal scorer Thierry Henry filmed the new Gatorade ad in Islington’s Barnard Park last year. And this summer, locals will enjoy the benefits of a donation from the shoot.
