“When my agents rang me about this one, I was like, ‘Where does it film by the way?’ and they were like, ‘Err, in Camden I think’ – ‘So you’re telling me there’s a Marvel movie that I’m gonna be in that films 20 minutes from my house, it’s not usual that that happens.'”

Kit Harington

While the trailer shows the Eternals all over the world, it also reveals a well-known pop-culture location, Camden. The beautiful London district and its no less famous painted bridge have a role to play in this blockbuster.

It is here that we first see Dane Whitman (Kit Harington) almost getting hit by a double-decker bus in Camden High Street, near the Camden Lock Bridge.

Kit Harington was delighted to shoot in Camden. The eclectic neighbourhood is indeed very close to his home. This is a very rare occurrence in the film industry, where most shoots are often set up far away from the crew’s homes or in studios in front of green screens.

Chloé Zhao wanted a more real setting to film the feature. Shooting on the street was a real challenge, but the Oscar-winning director of Nomadland wanted to bring a little extra to her film. All this while filming at night and causing as little inconvenience as possible to local residents. The latter were notified by mail that Sack Lunch was going to be filmed in their neighbourhood. A code name to hide the fact that it was, in fact, the latest Marvel blockbuster.

The actor, famous for his role as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, also revealed that he “got to film with Gemma and Richard… where we all used to go out when we were a bit younger, so there was a real thrill to that, actually.” Richard Madden, one of the many stars of the movie event, also commented “Are we at work now because we got drunk around here and hung out there quite a lot?”.
