Popular movie star Michelle Keegan to shoot TV series in Kenya

Celebrated British actress, Michelle Keegan, will on January 2016 be jetting into the country to shoot her new film.

Keegan in June 2015 landed a role in a BBC produced TV series titled Our Girl. She will be playing Corporal Georgie Lane, an Army Medic, in the show

According to various media reports, the actress will be spending three months in Kenya at the beginning of next year to film the TV show.

Michelle landed the lead in the new five-part series which will air in 2016 and is expected to be a film landmark.

The excited screen siren told UK press: “I’m a massive fan of the series so I can’t wait to be a part of it. It’s going to be a big but exciting ­challenge for me.”

The star wedded her reality TV celebrity husband, Mark Wright, in May 2015 and a month later landed the £250,000 (Sh26.4 million) role.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, Michelle said: “I’m out there for a long time. Obviously I’ll miss him (Mark) and I’ll miss home.

“But it’s my first job working away properly and I’m just excited for the challenge.”

A source added the loved-up couple will ‘struggle’ being apart but that Mark had made plans for a visit.

“If Mark can come out then he will pay me a visit. It’ll be tough but worth it,” said Keegan.

The 28-year-old actress has her sights set high for her acting career, and has revealed that her new husband will support her if Hollywood comes knocking.

Speaking to Closer magazine last month, Michelle said: “If the opportunity came up then of course I would like to go to Hollywood.”

Keegan is best known for her role as Tina McIntyre in ITV’s beloved soap Coronation Street.
