Florence Pugh has arrived in Ireland to shoot a movie adaptation of Emma Donoghue's post-Famine psychological thriller The Wonder, which is set in the Irish Midlands in 1859.
The fast-rising English actress, who has starred in Little Women, Black Widow and Fighting With My Family, plays Lib Wright, a nurse who is sent to a tiny village to observe what locals say is a miracle or a medical anomaly - a girl said to have survived without food for months.

People have flocked to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell, and a journalist has travelled to the village to cover the story.
Posting a shot of the Hollywood sign in Wicklow on Instagram, Oscar-nominated Pugh said, "Less traffic, greener hills, great Guinness. A different kind of Hollywood.. 💚🍀"
After starring opposite Scarlett Johansson in Black Widow earlier this year, she is set to reprise her role as Yelena Belova in the Marvel series Hawkeye later this year and also stars with Chris Pine and Harry Styles in Don’t Worry Darling.
Donoghue's novel Room was also made into a movie, starring Brie Larson, and directed by Lenny Abrahamson.
