Filming appeared to have gone quiet for the new James Bond film Spectre.
But Naomie Harris was back at work on Sunday, shooting scenes for Sam Mendes' upcoming 007 adventure on the Millennium Bridge in central London.
The 38-year-old star blended in with the crowd of tourists and early risers in her business chic ensemble, showcasing a voluminous head of curls while dressed as M's secretary Miss Moneypenny.

Ready for action: Naomie Harris was seen filming for new James Bond film Spectre as she powered along the Millennium Bridge in London on Sunday
Naomie's character was reintroduced in 2012's Skyfall, the first film in which her real name - Eve - is revealed.
The British beauty was sporting a smart trench jacket paired with black skinny jeans as she was filmed walking across the bridge.
She appeared to be on an important mission, with a phone in one hand and a briefcase in the other.

This is the first time in three weeks that Spectre has been on location on the Southbank.
Earlier this month, Daniel Craig was treated to a rare day off as his Bond stunt double performed a high-speed chase along the River Thames.
The 47-year-old actor's doppelgänger was also joined by a lookalike for French beauty Léa Seydoux's character as they zoomed along on a speedboat.
Double trouble: Daniel Craig and Léa Seydoux's stunt doubles were spotted filming an action sequence on the River Thames earlier this month
The stars and their doubles were first spotted shooting the key action sequence last month, but it appears more work was needed to finalise the scenes.
Several helicopters were spotted flying across the picturesque backdrop of the Houses of Parliament during filming for the latest installment in the spy franchise.
Daniel's double, dressed in a padded coat with a fur-lined collar, was seen wielding a Walther PPK gun as they pursued their foe by boat.
Close resemblance: Daniel left the hard work to his lookalike, who looked like he meant business as he wielded a Walther PPK gun
Exciting: Onlookers were amazed as several low-flying helicopters joined in the chase
Finishing touches: The actors and their doubles have been shooting similar river scenes for a month
From dawn to dusk: The hard-working stunt doubles stayed on board the boat all evening
What a view! A helicopter flies past Big Ben as they film scenes for the new espionage thriller
Need for speed: The doppelgängers raced up and down the river for hours
Big changes: Ralph Fiennes will be taking over from Dame Judi Dench as the new M
French beauty: Palme d'Or-winning actres Léa Seydoux is playing Bond's new sidekick Madeleine Swann
His glamorous Bond girl companion Madeleine Swann, played by Blue Is The Warmest Colour's Léa, was given a makeunder in a purple coat with a lilac headscarf knotted around her head.
Tourists lined the bridges and banks of the Thames to catch a glimpse of the dangerous manoeuvres.
While the production has been based at London's Pinewood Studios, it has also been shot on location in Mexico City, Rome and Morocco.
Not long to go: The next spy installment Spectre is due for release in November 2015
Newcomers: Monica Bellucci, Christoph Waltz and Andrew Scott have joined the all-star cast
Dramatic: The crew continued down the Thames for a daring finale outside the iconic House of Parliament where one helicopter swooped down while being filmed by the other helicopter
Back for another round: Acclaimed director Sam Mendes is returning to helm the film
The film is sticking close to the tried and tested Bond format, with the official synopsis on IMDb revealing: 'A cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation.
'While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.'
SPECTRE stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.
Look-a-like: James Bond movie Spectre Daniel Craig was not on the filmset, but his body double was seen on set zooming up and down the Thames on a speed boat
Making waves: The stunt doubles do their thing as the night falls down...
Eagerly anticipated: Fans of 007 are keen to see the new installment of the franchise
Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes and Monica Bellucci, who is making history as the oldest-ever Bond girl, also star in the hugely-anticipated action flick.
Other new cast members set to appear in Spectre include Sherlock baddie Andrew Scott, whose character's name is Denbigh and Christoph Waltz, who will play the spy's latest foreign foe, named Oberhauser.
The film is due to be released in the UK in November 2015.
Almost, but not quite: From a distance the pair certainly look like their alter egos
Exciting stuff: The stunt actors certainly did good impersonations of their respective Hollywood stars
Making a splash: The actors enjoy some high-speed as they create scenes for the new 007 film
Choppers: Helicopters with searchlights scan the capital's river as they record footage
Crew: Camera men took to a speedboat to film the scenes as they unfolded
Late night: Filming started at 9pm and ended at 1am at the weekend
