Scarborough provided some of the setting for the film, and 80 local people were used as extras for scenes filmed in South Bay

Saint Maud is the story of a young nurse assigned to look after a retired dancer who is convalescing in a grand house on the cliffs of Scarborough.

The story sees Maud’s life unravel as she develops an obsession with her patient Amanda. Maud believes that God is communicating with her throughout the day and becomes convinced that she needs to save her soul before she dies.

The movie’s producers are Andrea Cornwell and Oliver Kassman.

Andrea said: “Lots of different towns were scouted, but Scarborough had the cinematic scale that we felt would be fantastic on film.”

Oliver said: “We filmed in a variety of locations, but mostly along the seafront promenade, there is a very dramatic final scene that we filmed on the beach itself just a couple of days before Christmas.

Were you one of the extras in the film?, if so we would love to hear from you. Please send your pictures to [email protected]
