Here she is, sporting the kind of rosy glow that comes only after one too many gin and tonics.
Emily Blunt has been spotted in character as downtrodden alcoholic Rachel Watson on set of the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Paula Hawkins' hit book The Girl on the Train.
As that bright yellow cab confirms, the film is still being set in New York rather than London, as it was in the book - a decision that has annoyed some fans.
The Devil Wears Prada star has been given blotchy skin and lank, greasy hair, with the negative physical effects of Rachel’s binge-drinking heavily referenced throughout the book.
But at least Blunt won't be playing the commuting protagonist with an American accent.
The actress recently told BBC News: “It's moved to New York but I'm going to play her as British, that was a decision Tate [director, Tate Taylor] and I made recently.”
“I try not to get weighed down with what people are going to think of me,” she adds. “I'm going to have my own take on it.”
It has just been announced that Blunt will be joined by Friends star Lisa Kudrow, who brings a hat-trick of connections to the '90s show:
- Lisa will play a woman called Monica - co-star Courteney Cox's name in the hit comedy
- Emily plays a woman called Rachel - co-star Jennifer Aniston's name in the show
- Jennifer Aniston's husband Justin Theroux has already been cast to play Rachel's ex-husband
Welsh actor Luke Evans and Haley Bennett will play the seemingly perfect couple Rachel watches from the train, according to The Hollywood Reporter, while Rebecca Ferguson will play Anna, the wife of Rachel's ex-husband.
The Help star Allison Janney is set to play a detective and Edgar Ramirez will take on the role of Dr. Kamal Abdic.
The book was released in January this year and has sold more than three million copies worldwide. The film is due to hit cinemas in October next year.
