The new movie, starring Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, will be partly filmed in Cornwall, according to reports.

But Naomie - voodoo priestess Tia Dalma in the films - said: "From the Bahamas to Cornwall, I don't know if I can get excited about that."

The actress, 33, said she had "heard nothing" about reprising her role in the forthcoming film in the blockbuster franchise.

Asked about reports that Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides would be shot in Britain, she said: "Is it in Cornwall? No way....Cold weather? No. It's got to be in the Bahamas. The Bahamas or nothing."

The star was speaking at the Royal Television Society Awards, where she won a best actress gong for her lead role in Small Island.

She said she was instantly smitten when she received the script for the BBC One drama.

"It was beautifully written and Andrea Levy's novel, Small Island, was actually one of my favourite novels. I was really excited when I heard it was being adapted for TV," she said.
