Michael Sheen gets into character as he films his scenes for Good Omens series two

Edinburgh’s limestone streets provided the backdrop on Tuesday as Michael Sheen filmed his first scenes for the second season of popular fantasy drama Good Omens. 

The actor, 52, was dressed in character as Aziraphale, an angel who has lived on Earth since the dawn of creation, while shooting the Amazon Prime show in the Scottish capital.

‘Terry and I had no plans to do it, and then we couldn’t find anybody, everybody basically turned us down, really good people, saying it was too complicated, too weird or whatever.
