Bermuda born Young in ‘Girl on the Train’

Bermuda's own Lana Young continues to enjoy acting success, most recently in the drama film The Girl on the Train, which is now showing in local cinemas.

The Universal Pictures film has reportedly topped box office on its opening weekend.

Ms Young, who appears as a fertility doctor opposite Emily Blunt and Justin Theroux, said she's been fortunate in her career since moving to New York in 2014.

“My scene was the first on the schedule that day, so I got the great pleasure of meeting both Justin and Emily in the hair and make-up trailer,” she told The Royal Gazette.

“I enjoy when this happens because I get a chance to bond with them a little before going to set. They were both very friendly and made my job extremely easy and enjoyable.”

Other appearances have been the 2015 boxing drama Southpaw, as well as a role in the Marvel comics TV series Jessica Jones.

Ms Young said director Tate Taylor enjoyed her improvisation enough to pull her aside to ask “if I would like to play a joke on Justin”.

While she can't reveal the joke and give away a piece of the plot, she said the actors' mouths “hit the floor”.

“It was a short scene but a memorable shoot.”

Based on the bestselling novel by Paula Hawkins, the film has reaped close to $25 million this weekend in the United States and Canada. It is showing locally at the Speciality Cinema.
