In October last year, the media circulated photos of Dominic West and Lily James caught during a romantic trip to Rome. Paparazzi immortalized, among others their tender kisses during dinner, walks and the famous electric scooter ride. The couple’s affair caused quite a scandal as Dominic West had been married for 10 years to Catherine FitzGerald, an Irish landscape designer.
The new BBC miniseries “The Pursuit Of Love” premiered last weekend. It is a three-part adaptation of the novel by Nancy Mitford, which tells the story of two cousins who lived in Oxfordshire in the 1920s. In the production, Lily James stars as Linda – a wild-hearted aristocrat who seeks love at all costs, while her cousin Fanny (Emily Beecham) has a more conservative view.
After the premiere series the network was boiling. It turned out that Dominic West, who had a romantic relationship with Lily James a few months ago, plays her father in the production.
