Keira Knightley looks sombre in her new political film role as she joins co-star Indira Varma for the latest scenes of Official Secrets in Manchester
Shooting is well underway for the gripping political drama Official Secrets.
And lead actress Keira Knightley looked ever the professional as she stepped out with her game face on while filming new scenes on Sunday with her co-star Indira Varma, 44.
Portraying the real-life British whistle-blower Katharine Gun, the 32-year-old actress looked sombre as she completely embodied her character and stepped out of a black taxi in Manchester's city centre.

Dressed in a navy button-down coat, high waist beige checked trousers and dove grey heels, the British rose looked demure as she stepped out of the cab with just a brush of make-up on her chiselled face.
Keira added a pop of colour to her outfit of the day as she pulled on a blush pink scarf to keep warm in the bitterly cold weather.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star also carried a large leather tote bag on one arm, and could be seen talking animatedly with her scene partner Indira before they began shooting their new scene.

Indira, who is playing an as-yet-untitled role in the film, also looked perfectly chic as she walked out in a long sleet grey coat and a black dress.
The Game Of Thrones actress' cropped brunette locks were brushed to one side, and the pixie-cut look suited her well as it highlighted her stunning features.
Wearing a slick of bold red lipstick to offset her character's sombre attire, Indira was the picture of glamour as she walked alongside her scene partner.
On Friday, Keira was seen shooting what appeared to be wedding scenes, as she slipped her tiny frame into a white corset top and skirt and wore a pale blue pashmina to keep away the March chill.

The actress cuddled up to her co-star Adam Bakri, who wore a matching coloured suit and a flower at his lapel, and the handsome actor was seen planting a loving kiss onto Keria as she grinned girlishly.
In other candid snaps, things seemed to be a lot more serious as she was seen exiting a quaint village cottage, her long brunette locks falling around her make-up free features.
The star has been given an understated makeover for her role in the project, which also features Ralph Fiennes, Matthew Goode and Matt Smith.
Katherine Gun leaked information to the press about an illegal NSA spy operation designed to push the UN Security Council into sanctioning the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Gun was a former Mandarin-language translator at the British intelligence agency GCHQ in Cheltenham.
When The Observer broke the story, Gun was arrested and charged under the Official Secrets Act, causing public backlash.
Her trial took place in early 2004, but authorities soon dropped the case, and she was famously backed by famous faces including actor Sean Penn.
Directed by Gavin Hood, the film is based on the book The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War: Katharine Gun and the Secret Plot to Sanction the Iraq Invasion.
Fiennes is portraying Gun's barrister Ben Emmerson and Goode is set to play Peter Beaumont, one of the journalists who broke the story.
