Rachael Taylor shoots new movie in Sydney CBD

She’s one of Australia’s most famous actresses.

And in the coming weeks, lucky Sydneysiders may be able to spot Rachael Taylor as she films her new movie in and around the harbour city.

On Saturday, shooting of the drama got underway in the CBD, with the stunning star seen slipping into costume for the period piece.

Turning back time! On Saturday, Rachael Taylor was seen on the set of her new period piece, Ladies In Black 

The film, titled Ladies in Black, is coming-of-age story based on the novel by Madeleine St John.

Set in 1959, the film is described by IMDB as ‘an alluring and tender-hearted comedy drama about the lives of a group of department store employees’.

Indeed, Rachael looked the part by donning a soft yellow cardigan and a floral sundress.

Sporting a finger style hairdo, the talented actress also added a pair of daisy earrings and dewy make-up to transform into character.

The 1950s look is a far cry from the way fans are used to seeing Rachael- who plays Trish Walker in the Netflix comic book series, Jessica Jones. 

Ladies In Black is directed by acclaimed Australian Bruce Beresford, who was seen conversing with Rachael in between takes.

Shooting took place at the historic Mark Foy’s building in the city- which operated as an iconic Sydney department store from 1909 until closure in 1980. The building now serves as Downing Centre Court. 

The film also stars Ryan Corr, who was also seen on set outside the Mark Foy’s building with assistants putting the finishing touches on his costume.
