Michelle Keegan's new outlook on life after filming Our Girl in Nepal

Share article:

Michelle Keegan has a "totally different perspective" on life after shooting the new series of "Our Girl" in Nepal.

The 29-year-old actress shared with her 3.1 million followers how spending time in the country in South Asia for the next instalment of the modern war drama was "eye-opening" and has made her appreciate the "little things" in life.

Sharing a photograph of herself standing on the steps of a temple, she wrote on Instagram: "Last day in Nepal... what an amazing eye opening journey. Coming away with a totally different perspective on life. Feeling very blessed and thankful. #itsthelittlethings #glasshalffull #ourgirl3 (sic)"

The brunette beauty - who played Lance Corporal Georgie Lane in the second series of the BBC show - will be filming the third series for eight months in total visiting countries including South Africa and Malaysia.

The former "Coronation Street" star and her husband Mark Wright were forced to spend their second wedding anniversary apart as Michelle jetted away for work.

Mark explained last month: "It's Nepal, South Africa, I think they're going to Malaysia. They're going everywhere for the next few months. It is difficult [to be separated from Michelle] and obviously in drama, the drama that she does, it takes ages to shoot an episode - compared to what we do in entertainment. It's so much long winded so that's why she has to be there for so long."

Michelle joined the army drama last year as Corporal Georgie Lane after Lacey Turner - who was chosen to lead the first ever series in 2013 - turned her back on the programme as Molly Dawes in order to return to "EastEnders" as Stacey Fowler.

She received rave reviews from viewers right from the first episode as fans fell in love with her portrayal of the bolshie army girl.

The series followed Georgie as her ex-boyfriend Special Forces Officer Elvis Harte (Luke Pasqualino) attempted to save her from being shot by the Taliban - a Sunni Islamic fundamentalist political movement - before the pair went on to prevent a terrorist attack in their home city of Manchester.

A few weeks after the series concluded, bosses confirmed that they were planning to do another instalment but refused to divulge any more details at that moment in time.
