Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams brought an unusual touch of Hollywood glamour to the streets of Edgware, as they were spotted this week filming Disobedience.

Weisz is also producing the screen adaptation of Naomi Alderman’s debut novel from 2006, which deals with forbidden love.

Set in north-west London, the story follows Ronit (Weisz) who returns home following the death of her father and rekindles a romance with her best friend (McAdams), who is now married to her cousin.

The pair were suitably wrapped up for the winter gloom and donned modest clothing, with McAdams visibly wearing a sheitel for the shoot.

The 38-year-old Canadian actress has been busy researching for her role and visited Hasmonean School for Girls in Mill Hill to speak to the students.
