Kelly Macdonald, who's starred in Harry Potter and Boardwalk Empire, admits that during her time in Cumbria she experienced "typical British weather".
The actress stars as Mrs Walker in the new BBC adaptation of the well loved children's series, "Swallows & Amazons", which is based on Arthur Ransome's summers in Keswick.

A Border Television TV Guide from 1961 is to be auctioned in Carlisle today.
The small piece of Border TV history was found in a house clearance where it had been hidden in a box for more than 50 years.
The September 1st edition transports us back to a time a few years before colour TV would have been in many homes.
It features programmes including Wrestling with Big Daddy, Western TV series Cheyanne, The Avengers and of course Coronation Street.
Experts say they have no idea how much the guide, which will be auctioned at H&H Auction Room, will be sold for.
This is a fantastic step back in time, and a great reminder of the of the TV programmes, which were popular over 50 years ago, most of which are well remembered and some of which are still with us today.
This quite literally is a magazine, which is synonymous with the 1960s, and I know it will bring back some very fond reminders and happy memories for many people.

A Carlisle church has been unusually busy - all because of the Pokemon Go craze.
People have been gathering at Christ the King in Harraby, which in the Pokemon world is classed as a 'gym'.
The aim of the game is for players to meet up and take part in virtual battles with their Pokemon characters.
Michael Docherty, Parish Priest of Christ the King, says players are welcome to pop into the church.
We'd welcome any players. The church is open morning through to evening. They can pop in, light a candle you know refresh themselves after fighting in the gym... whatever that means.
