The Herald has an exclusive clip of a new romantic drama shot entirely on the Isle of Lewis featuring a former Game of Thrones star in the lead role.

Nobody Has To Know tells the story of a middle-aged farmhand Phil (Bouli Lanners) who remains tight-lipped about his past life in Belgium when questioned by members of the local community.

When he suffers a bout of amnesia following a stroke, a lonely middle-aged woman named Millie (Game of Thrones’ Michelle Fairley) swoops in to help and claims that they were once in a secret relationship.

She then must fight to keep the fragile lie alive as audiences are left to question what stories would take the place of our memories if they were to vanish.

Written and directed by renowned Belgian actor and filmmaker Bouli Lanners, and co-directed by BAFTA nominee Tim Mielants, Nobody Has To Know features a supporting cast including Julian Glover (Tár), Cal MacAninich (Mayflies) and Andrew Still (Coronation Street). 

Speaking ahead of the film’s release, Mr Lanners said he was “thrilled” at the opportunity to film in the Outer Hebrides, having holidayed across Scotland for more than 30 years.

Bouli, who’s previous feature The Giants won him the prestigious SACD Prize at Cannes and five Magritte Awards including Best Film and Best Director, wrote the script for Nobody Has To Know over seven months spent in a rented cottage on Lewis. 

Whilst he had originally intended to write a thriller, he said he found the island environment so emotional and romantic it became a love story instead. 

Nobody Has To Know will be shown at cinemas across the UK from Friday, November 3.
