    Bake Off’s Prue Leith makes unexpected cameo in Red Notice alongside Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot


    She’s known for her signature bakes and showstopping cakes. 

    And Prue Leith became an unexpected film star when she made a surprise appearance in the Netflix smash hit Red Notice alongside Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot this month. 

    The Bake Off judge, 81, popped up on screen when Gal’s character The Bishop was watching the 2020 series of Bake Off, which saw Prue sampling contestant Laura Adlington’s iconic Freddie Mercury cake.

    Red Notice reportedly had a budget of £145million and is thought to be Netflix’s most expensive movie ever.    

    And Prue is not the only A-lister making an appearance as Ed Sheeran also cameos in the film. 

    The film’s director Rawson Marshall Thurber told GamesRadar+ of the hitmaker’s role: ‘It’s actually my favorite part of the movie. Ed, from the very first pitch, was who I wanted. 

    ‘When the time came, I had a mutual friend who put us in touch and I emailed Ed – who is the loveliest person on the planet, by the way – and I sent him a picture of my notebook when I was writing the pitch. It had his name in it, so he knew I wasn’t fooling.’

    Rawson’s latest film is centered on an FBI agent who enlists the help of an art thief in order to catch a budding criminal. 

    News about the project was first broken in 2018, when it was noted that Dwayne  would both appear in the film and act as one of its executive producers. 

    Gal signed on to work on the project that June, and Ryan was added to its cast the following year.

    Other performers, such as Chris Diamantopoulos and Rita Arya, were revealed to have been added to the film’s lineup last year.

    Filming was initially set to begin in 2019, although it was delayed to the following year.

    Production eventually began in January and filming was quickly shut down due to the onset of the global pandemic.

    Principal photography later picked up again in September and continued for two more months before the project’s crew wrapped.

    The film was initially set to be released in 2020, although it was delayed twice before it was given a set release date of November 12th.

    According to Rotten Tomatoes, only 43% of critics have given Red Notice a positive review, while 92% of audiences have enjoyed the feature.
