Former Lichtie and Scottish history nerd Jennifer Cooper is rubbing shoulders with Edinburgh actor and international model Chris Capaldi during the filming of Scottish movie ‘The Fairy Flag’.
Filming for the mystical movie started on June 1 in Fife.
Jennifer is a Production Assistant on the film working with Dunfermline based Tachy Studios. She began her career with the same studio on a number of projects, including three Scottish web-series.
Along with a healthy obsession with the Jacobite Rebellion, Jennifer has been building up a name for herself within the gory horror movie industry as a writer.
For the past five years she has been an ambassador for the grassroots movement ‘Women in Horror Recognition Month’ and is the founder of the Jennifer’s Bodies film festival which recently hosted a two day event in Edinburgh and is set to arrive in Glasgow this July.
The Fairy Flag (Am Bratach Sìth in Gaelic) centres around a treasured heirloom of the Clan Macleod.
The flag has resided at Dunvegan Castle on the Isle of Skye, home to the Macleod family for 800 years, making it the oldest castle in Scotland to have been inherited by the same family throughout the years. A point that is still true to this day.
Based on an original story by Rory Mhorr Nicoll and Peter Columbia, and directed by David Izatt, The Fairy Flag is a film that will embrace Scottish history, and the wonderful myths and legends that come with it.
Lead Chris Capaldi, face of Scottish Beef and experienced fitness trainer said on Twitter: “Cracking day on set! Meeting more cast members and getting into the character of Iain Breac Macleod.”
Arbroathian Jennifer said to the Arbroath Herald: “This is an exciting opportunity for me, to step up my game in the film industry.”
