THE FILM version of smash hit bestselling romantic novel Me Before You, which saw its stars filming on location in Pembroke last year, is to go on general release early next month.

Last May, Pembroke’s castle and streets enjoyed a touch of Hollywood, even witnessing an unseasonal snow storm, as movie crews and major stars were seen in the town, as part of shooting for a feature film based on author Jojo Moyes’ bestselling book.

Big draws for fans were The Hunger Games' Sam Claflin, Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke, and writer Jojo Moyes.

In the film version of Jojo Moyes’ bestseller, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke plays Lou, a small-town girl caught between dead-end jobs, and Will, played by The Hunger Games' Sam Claflin, a successful man, wheelchair-bound after an accident, who can find no reason to live, until they meet when he hires her as his care worker.

Author Jojo Moyes was more than happy to meet her fans in the town.

The town also had its taste of a magical winter scene, when the whole of Main Street snowed - in May – for location shots.

During the location shooting Pembroke also saw the return of a cinema to Main Street, called the Riverside Picture House in the film, not seen since the closure of the Haggar’s cinema.

A trailer for the forthcoming film, featuring location shots of Pembroke Castle is on general release ahead of the movie.

Before the filming there had been initial concerns about disruption, which was kept to a minimum.

After last year’s filming, town councillor Keith Nicholas said: “It’s good PR for the county, and genuinely no major problems.”
