Knebworth becomes backdrop of film
Coasters cafe in Knebworth, as well as locations in Datchworth and at Welwyn North train station, were used as sets for the filming for Nobody’s Child, written and directed by former WGC resident Sue Shearing.
The Catch Me Films production, which tells the story of a 14-year-old adopted girl searching for her birth mother, features Jonathan Ross’ step-dad Tony Phillips, as well as Hertfordshire people Lily Norman, Amellia Brown, Peter Lee-Byrne and Donna Brown.
Speaking after filming Sue, who lived for 40 years in WGC including in Melbourne Court, said: “It was fantastic.
“It has been an exhausting but fun week, with lots of laughs along the way.
“The film will now go into post production, and once edited will be submitted to TV companies and film festivals.
