Billie Piper has been spotted filming a dining scene for Penny Dreadful in Dublin.

The English actress was snapped in costume outside Dublin Castle as she got into character for the gothic drama.

Billie, 32, plays the part of revived corpse Lily in the drama, but the Doctor Who star wasn’t the only famous face on set, as Irish actress Sarah Greene was also spotted during filming.

Another scene which involved a fight between police men and a group of female protesters, was shot by Yvonne Connolly’s boyfriend, filmmaker John Conroy.

The hit TV show centres on characters from 19th century fiction such as Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray- and we think Billie certainly looked the part!

It is one of the largest TV shows to be produced in Ireland and is now in it’s third series. The first series alone was worth €33m to the Irish economy- nice one!

The critically-acclaimed Showtime programme which also stars Hollywood heart throb Josh Hartnett and Eva Green, will air on Sky Atlantic in 2016.
