"The Little Stranger" Irish cast take to New York. 

Ruth Wilson left lots of fans heartbroken with her decision to leave her starring role in the Showtime series The Affair – her character, Alison Bailey, was killed off a couple of weeks ago – but she’s hardly going to be out of sight.

Wilson will next be seen working alongside two Irishmen, Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar-nominated writer/director Lenny Abrahamson, in the film "The Little Stranger," which drops on August 31.  Abrahamson directed, and Ruth and Domhnall star in the ghost story about a country doctor and a gentry family in the 1940s.

All three were in New York last week to do promo for the film and attend the premiere.  Domhnall is currently working on the next "Star Wars" movie, and interviewers were keen to entice a hint or two about the plot from the actor who plays General Hux.  Not surprisingly, he didn’t play ball.

“I have no comment,” he laughed during Build Series interview last week. 

“It’s going great, I was on set yesterday, an amazing set, amazing things happened and I can’t tell you anything about it.  I’m so scared talking about it.”

Wilson, meanwhile, started filming a new BBC drama, "Mrs. Wilson," in Northern Ireland earlier this year, based on her real-life grandmother. Richard Williams, chief executive of Northern Ireland Screen, said at the time, "We are delighted to welcome the cast and crew of 'Mrs. Wilson' to Northern Ireland and to continue our successful partnership agreement with the BBC, which sees the continued investment in developing an internationally competitive screen industry here.”
