British up and comer Tamsin Egerton has joined Sam Claflin and Lily Collins in romantic comedy “Love, Rosie”, according to Britain’s The Daily Mail.
Collins and Claflin play best friends and star-crossed lovers in the film based on the novel “Where Rainbows End” by Cecelia Ahern, who also wrote “P.S. I Love You.” Christian Ditter directs the film which follows Collins’ Rosie and Clafin’s Alex on the cusp of heading off to college. When she gets pregnant unexpectedly, she urges him to go without her and the film chronicles their lives over the next 12 years. No word on who Egerton will play, but filming begins in May.
Egerton may be most familiar to audiences for her role as Guinvere in Starz’ short-lived Arthurian legend series “Camelot.” She’s appeared in cult British film “St Trinian’s II: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold” as well as “Chalet Girl” opposite Felicity Jones and will soon be seen opposite Steve Coogan and Imogen Poots in “The Look of Love.” She recently landed a starring role in new Fox pilot “The List.”
