SCOTTISH actor David Tennant and a former James Bond girl provided an unusual sight in the leafy west end of Glasgow.

Tennant was filming scenes with actor Rosamund Pike, who appeared opposite Piers Brosnan in the blockbuster Die Another Day, at a property in Scotstoun.

The duo were working on the BBC movie What We Did On Our Holiday. Film cables littered the pavement outside the semi-detached home as Tennant fine-tuned his humorous role as Doug – a man whose marriage is in tatters. It centres on a dysfunctional family's return to Glasgow to celebrate a relative's birthday.

There was no sign of one of the comedy's other big stars, Billy Connolly, who plays a character called Georgie.

Children who were being picked up by their parents at Scotstoun Primary caught a glimpse of the famous stars.

Tracey Andrews, 43, who was collecting her son Ronnie, nine, said of Tennant: "I really wanted to get a picture with him."

The movie is being filmed in different locations across the Highlands and Glasgow until August 3. Other actors appearing in the film include Celia Imrie, and Ben Miller of Death In Paradise fame. No date for its release has yet been set.

World War Z, which was filmed in Glasgow and stars Brad Pitt, will tomorrow have its premiere in Scotland as part of the West End Festival.

Meanwhile, work by a new charity which aims to help young people into film and television careers is under way at a studio in Glasgow.

JUMPCUT is backed by influential members of the industry and aims to support young Scots between the ages of 16 and 25 in finding sustainable careers in the screen industries.

The organisation promises to give practical advice and experience including access to industry experts and top tips from director Ken Loach and film star Robert Carlyle.

It holds monthly sessions at the Film City Studios in Govan, Glasgow. These include a mixture of talks, demonstrations and practical workshops.
