Ricky Gervais filmed a now famous scene of his new Netflix show in Rickmansworth.
Gervais and his crew visited the Mill End Community Centre to film parts of the comedian/actor’s latest series, After Life.
After Life, which is acted, directed and written by Gervais, centres around a widow, Tony (Gervais) trying, and often failing, to cope with life soon after his wife passed away.
Tony becomes impulsive and his devil-may-care attitude soon lands him in a variety of controversial and at times, hilarious predicaments.
The show’s most famous scene, which involves Tony verbally abusing a child who called him a ‘paedo’, was filmed in the Mill End Community Centre in July last year.
Centre manager, Susan Gambula, said: “I haven’t seen the show but my son showed me the scene with the red-head child in the school – the school scenes were the ones filmed here.
“When Ricky came to film, he spoke to the lunch club briefly because they had to move to another hall so the crew could film.
“I think he just thanked them – a lot of the group are elderly so I doubt they would’ve known too much about him.
“I’ve heard a lot of people say they’ve enjoyed the show.”
After Life is available for streaming on Netflix now.
