"Thank you to everyone who welcomed me so warmly into your beautiful city. I'm coming back!"

Belfast will double for Iceland in the film, which centres around a Nordic Prince on a mission to avenge his father’s death.

A ‘Viking’ village appeared among the rolling hills of picturesque Torr Head in  Co Antrim during filming.

Production was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic but resumed in August.

Ahead of filming, she revealed the prospect of joining the set left her feeling "pretty terrified".

Speaking to Collider, she said: "I’m pretty terrified right now. I sound calm but you shouldn’t see what’s going on inside.”
