Moss is currently shooting High-Rise alongside Sienna Miller and Jeremy Irons and was spotted soaking up the sights and sounds of Northern Ireland.

She was spotted enjoying dinner last night at Fontanta Restaurant and kept a low profile during her meal, despite leaving several diners starstruck on arrival.

One onlooker said: "She pretty much kept to herself but everyone in the restaurant was talking about it. She came in with some of the other cast members, but was definitely the most famous of the group."

Moss is just the latest star to visit Ireland this year as Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid visited his hometown in Derry earlier this month and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West famously celebrated their honeymoon here in May.

High-Rise focuses on a wealthy community which turns into anarchy when it's cut off from the rest of society.

And director Ben Wheatley said he was thrilled with her joining the project.

"Elisabeth Moss and Luke Evans are great additions to our cast. I'm really excited to be working with both of them," he said.
