The 31-year-old wrapped up against the fall cold in costume – with a light green windbreaker and black pants.

She wore her brunette locks styled in resilient waves and her makeup was kept basic for the rural scenes that took place on Grassington Square near Skipton.

She went to Instagram last month to announce her casting in the series that she was overjoyed about.

In addition to a photo of a TV clapperboard, she wrote: & # 39; So excited that I can finally say that I am working on ALL CREATURES BIG AND SMALL for @masterpiecepbs … I'm also excited that I can now spam your feed freely with pictures of different farm animals #dreamjob #imallabouttheanimals # 1937 #yorkshire & # 39;
