A TASTE of Hollywood came to Forty Green in Beaconsfield as scenes for a star-studded Netflix series were filmed in the village.

Romantic comedy Too Much, a Netflix production written and directed by Lena Dunham was filmed at The Royal Standard of England pub on Monday, February 5.

Andrew Scott, famous for his role as the 'hot priest' in the BBC series Fleabag, was pictured in the pub.

Matthew O'Keeffe of the The Royal Standard of England, explained how popular the pub is for production companies.

He said: "They are filming a romcom like the Notting Hill pub scene.

"We share the same language but we hear another meaning. We were a pub setting for a picturesque Cotswold pub.

"All the filming we allow raises our profile and, good for Buckinghamshire locally, brings in investment spending. Which is great for the local economy.

"We also get location spotting tourists checking out the pub from films and shows. Currently showing on Channel 5 drama Finders Keepers with Neil Morrissey. 

"I've even had a request from a family having a wake here to drop their father's ashes in the bar since Ricky Gervais attempted to do this here in his scene filmed in the pub, shown in his comedy Afterlife.

"All the filming cast and crew love the pub and would like one like this in walking distance from their home."

The series follows the story of Jessica, a New York workaholic in her mid-30s, reeling from a broken relationship that she thought would last forever and slowly isolating everyone she knows.

When every block in New York tells a story of her own bad behaviour, the only solution is to take a job in London, where she plans to live a life of solitude like a Bronte sister. But when she meets Felix – who is less Hugh Grant in Notting Hill and more Hugh Grant's drunken roommate – she finds that their unusual connection is impossible to ignore, even as it creates more problems than it solves.

Now they have to ask themselves: do Americans and Brits actually speak the same language?

From the creator of Girls and the producers of Love Actually, Too Much is an ex-pat rom-com for the disillusioned who wonder if true love is still possible, but sincerely hope that it is. 

Co-creator, writer and director Lena Dunham said: “Netflix have been so supportive of the vision, which is to create a romantic comedy that makes us root for love, brings joy but also has the jagged edges of life.”
