WE last saw her pumping bullets into Robert Sheehan in the final moments of the last series, and it appears the masked assassin Lizzie is returning for more killing.

Actress Caoilfhionn Dunne was on set yesterday filming for the new series in Dublin’s O’Deavney Gardens flat complex.

The 28-year-old actress sported a full head of hair, having shaved it all off for her last scene, where she avenged her brothers’ deaths by killing Robert Sheehan’s character Darren.

The actress is believed to take a more prominent role in the next series, which is being shot in various locations around the city over the recent  weeks. 

Yesterday she was filmed walking through the inner city flat complex and knocking on a door of one of the flats. Local children were used as extras in the scene.

The Finglas born actress said previously that she relished exploring such a strong character, which was written specifically for her after she auditioned for the show.

“I approached her as an animal-like child. She is trusting and loyal. She is constantly surrounded by strong men, aggressive men and to react off them was interesting."

She has been joined by other cast members in various locations around the capital including Walkinstown and the centre of the city in the past two weeks.

Other familiar faces making a return include Nidge, played by actor Tom Vaughan Lawlor, who is thronged by fans and autograph hunters on set. Also spotted during filming is Elmo played by actor Laurence Kinlan and the character of Fran, played by actor Peter Coonan.
