He is best known for portraying fearless character Peter Quinn in popular series Homeland, a lauded role he shockingly departed last year.
And Rupert Friend, 37, was spotted flexing his acting muscles for a brand new role on Wednesday, when he stepped out to shoot scenes for his upcoming supernatural thriller Separated, alongside The Handmaid’s Tale star Madeline Brewer, 26.
The co-stars wrapped up in winter gear to stave off the autumnal chill as they shot scenes for their William Brent Bell-directed film in New York City’s Central Park.
British actor Rupert kept himself warm in a padded green bomber jacket over a light grey shirt and a pair of T-shirts, which he teamed with lightly faded ripped jeans and cobalt blue running shoes.
Meanwhile, New Jersey native Madeline, who also appeared as drug addict Tricia Miller in Orange Is The New Black, stepped out in a mix of prints.
The actress caught the eye in a multicoloured houndstooth coat, which she wore over a white T-shirt and patterned top.
Wearing black skinny jeans with matching ankle socks and chunky boots, she wore her locks in a long fiery red style while keeping her hands warm in bright blue gloves.
Rupert and Madeline were seen engaging in intense conversation as they shot scenes for the film before a relatively small camera crew.
While publicly released details on the movie, which started production last month, have been scant, it is said to focus on the terrifying consequences of divorce.
At the time that the film was announced, the Hollywood Reporter quoted director Bell as saying of the plot: ‘It blends emotional, relatable family drama with edge-of-your-seat scares, and Rupert is the ideal actor to bring both aspects to life.’
Madeline has won over legions of fans thanks to her portrayal of Janine, also known as Ofwarren/Ofdaniel in dystopian drama The Handmaid’s Tale.
The first season of the show went on to win eight Emmy Awards, as well as Best Drama and Best Actress for star Elisabeth Moss at the Golden Globes.
Rupert, who once dated Keira Knightley, has been married to American fashion model Aimee Mullins since 2016.
