Jessie Buckley has revealed that she and Olivia Colman have been sending each other risqué text messages in Italian.

The actors are starring together in The Lost Daughter, Maggie Gyllenhaal’s adaptation of the 2008 book by the Italian novelist Elena Ferrante.

Buckley has been in quarantine after flying to Chicago for filming commitments and she told The Telegraph that, to kill time, she and Colman have been “texting each other the naughtiest Italian phrases that we know, which I suppose just about counts as rehearsal”.

The Lost Daughter also stars Dakota Johnson, Gyllenhaal’s husband Peter Sarsgaard, and Normal People’s Paul Mescal.

Buckley’s other film and TV credits include Wild Rose, Beast and Chernobyl.
