Blake Lively is more of a chameleon than we gave her credit for.

The 30-year-old actress has been busy filming in Dublin for the last month, keeping more of a low profile in out-of-sight locations after causing a media storm during her first withered looking appearance on Talbot Street. After several weeks of shooting around Wicklow and Dublin, she was pictured again at Stephen's Green on Sunday night, where filming took place at the plush Cliff Townhouse.

Lively is starring in spy thriller The Rhythm Section, which is set in London, but being filmed in various Irish locations. It's being produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions, who produced the last eight James Bond movies, while The Handmaid's Tale's Reed Morano is also involved.

She was wearing the chic attire we've come to expect from her both onscreen and off, but the Gossip Girl actress was unrecognisable in a black cropped wig, her character's latest transformation. And there wasn't much blending in as crowds continually gathered to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood superstar.

Production has also taken place at the private country estate Clonwilliam House in Arklow, traditionally used as a wedding venue, but producers were said to be impressed by its set-up, including an indoor pool and extensive driveway to ensure privacy, and O'Connell Street.

Blake is joined in Ireland by her husband of five years Ryan Reynolds (40) and their daughters Ines (one) and James, who will celebrate her upcoming third birthday here. The couple are renting a plush home in Killiney to accommodate their young family and entourage and Reynolds has been spotted on daddy duty a number of times around town.

The Deadpool star shared a picture on Instagram last week of him enjoying the grounds at Powerscourt.
