Alessandro Glorio, of Café Gelato in Norwich, met Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormick, the stars of the film Good Luck To You, Leo Grande. They both enjoyed a well earned treat of Italian gelato during the shot of the new film.
The man was delighted to start a conversation in Italian with Emma.
Mr Glorio said: “The day of the filming we had an unexpected surprise, Emma Thompson came in. There was another surprise, she started to speak with us in a very good Italian.
“We immediately felt at ease with her, a lovely easy going person and a really expert of Italian gelato. Adorable.”
Dear Emmaholics, as you know Emma is busy shooting the new film Good luck to you Leo Grande in which she plays a middle-aged woman in search of adventures and runs into a young man who calls himself a sex-therapist.
The name of the young actor who should play the part of 20-year-old Leo is not yet known. Who would you prefer in this role? Among the young actors I really like Fionn Whitehead, who has already worked brilliantly with Emma in The children act and I also like Thomas Brodie Sangster.
Come on, let’s bet for fun: who do you think will play the role of Leo?
Emma Thompson will star in the sex comedy “Good Luck To You, Leo Grande”, directed by Sophie Hyde and written by Katy Brand. She plays Nancy Stokes, a 55 year-old widow who is yearning for some adventure. She hires Leo Grande, a sex worker in his early twenties for a night of bliss.
The film will go into production in London in early 2021.
