She’s been happily married to her screenwriter husband Mark Webber since 2013.
But on Tuesday actress Teresa Palmer suspended reality as she filmed steamy scenes for her latest film, 2:22 in Sydney alongside her Dutch co-star and Game Of Thrones heartthrob Michiel Huisman.
As the pair played up to the cameras, the 28-year-old Adelaide local looked stunning in a sleeveless silk grey top, which she teamed with a pleated high-waisted skirt, and patent ankle strap heels that showed off her endless legs.
The actress, who celebrated her son Bodhi’s first birthday on Sunday, let her sandy blonde locks flow over her shoulders with a loose curl.
Her striking features were on full display thanks to a dramatic smokey eye, bronzed cheeks and glossy lips.
Meanwhile Michiel, who married Dutch actress Tara Elders in 2008, kept things casual in a blue shirt, dark denim slim-fit jeans and lace-up shoes.
During one heated moment, the pair shared a long smooch by a park bench. Later Mark spun the Aussie star around as they enjoyed an al fresco dance session.
In another scene the duo recline on the bench as Mark holds a coffee and Teresa balances an ice cream cone in one hand and a delicate white daisy in the other.
Filming was momentarily suspended after some unwelcome rain crashed the afternoon, with the crew quickly producing oversized umbrellas to shield the stars.
Tipped to be released at the end of 2015, the Australian-American thriller is directed by Paul Currie and follows Dylan, played by Michiel, and a strange series of events that occur every day at 2:22pm and eventually send his life into chaos.
No confirmation that its official but this seems like its for real. Hopefully more future pictures will confirm 100%. For now, there is this:
Good Universe has closed multiple international deals for the distribution of The Forest, a supernatural thriller starring Michiel Huisman (Wild, World War Z, Game Of Thrones) and Natalie Dormer (The Hunger Games, Game Of Thrones, Elementary). To be directed by Jason Zaza from a script by Sarah Cornwell and Nick Antosca, The Forest tells the story of a young American woman who goes in search of her twin sister who disappeared in the forest at the base of Mount Fuji.
Lava Bear Films will produce along with David S. Goyer under his Phantom Four banner. Tory Metzger, president of Lava Bear, will oversee production, which is set to begin in May. Focus Features acquired North American distribution rights and has scheduled the film for wide release next January.
In the run-up to the 2015 European Film Market in Berlin, Good Universe and Lava Bear have already sold The Forest in over 25 territories, including Australia, New Zealand, Eastern Europe, Iceland, Israel, Portugal, Scandinavia, South Africa, Spain and all of Asia, excluding Japan, through Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions; the United Kingdom through Icon; Germany, Switzerland and Benelux through Splendid; the Middle East through Grand Cinema, and Latin America through Sun Distribution.

Sony has closed the first major studio buy of this year’s European Film Market, and the EFM hasn’t even started yet.
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has snatched up rights in multiple territories, including Australia, Spain, Eastern Europe and all of Asia outside of Japan, for The Forest, a supernatural thriller to star Natalie Dormer and Michiel Huisman.
Based on an original idea by The Dark Knight screenwriter David S. Goyer, The Forest is set in Japan’s Aokigahara forest, at the base of Mt. Fuji. The story follows a young American woman, Sara (Dormer), who goes in search of her missing twin sister. Despite everyone’s warnings to “stay on the path,” Sara enters the forest determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, only to be confronted by the angry and tormented souls of the dead who prey on anyone who wanders the forest.
Dormer’s Game of Thrones fellow alum Huisman has joined the cast of the feature, which newcomer Jason Zada will direct from a script rewritten by Sarah Cornwell and Nick Antosca. Focus Features has picked up North American rights and is planning a wide domestic release on Jan. 8, 2016.
Huisman, whose credits include Wild and World War Z, is repped by ICM Partners. Dormer, last seen in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 and Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club, is next set to star in Screen Gems’ Patient Zero from director Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters). She is repped by UTA, Untitled Entertainment, United Agents in the U.K. and attorney Karl Austen.
Lava Bear Films is producing The Forest with Goyer under his Phantom Four banner. Shooting is scheduled to start in May. Lava Bear is handling international sales with Good Universe. Tory Metzger, president of Lava Bear, is overseeing the production of the film.
In addition to the multiple territory deal with Sony, Lava Bear and Good Universe also closed presales with Splendid for Germany, Switzerland and Benelux, with Icon for U.K. distribution, with Grand Cinema for the Middle East and with Sun Distribution for Latin America.

Whether he’s stripping and killing for his Khaleesi on “Game of Thrones” or playing daddy on “Orphan Black,” one thing is for sure about actor Michiel Huisman… he’ll soon be screaming when he enters Japan’s Aokigahara forest.
And who wouldn’t?
THR is reporting that Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has snatched up rights in multiple territories, including Australia, Spain, Eastern Europe, and all of Asia outside of Japan for The Forest, a supernatural thriller to star Natalie Dormer (also from “Game of Thrones”) and the newly announced Huisman (pictured below).
Based on an original idea by The Dark Knight screenwriter David S. Goyer, The Forest is set in Japan’s Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt. Fuji. The story follows a young American woman (Dormer) who goes in search of her missing twin sister. Despite everyone’s warnings to “stay on the path,” Sara enters the forest determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, only to be confronted by the angry and tormented souls of the dead who prey on anyone who wanders the forest.

Your wait now has an endpoint: HBO just announced the premiere date for Game of Thrones season 5.
The launch date is not a big surprise as Thrones always tends to return around the same time each year. But now it’s official: Thrones will unveil its fifth season on Sunday, April 12. HBO will also launch the fourth season of Veep and the second season of Silicon Valley on the same date.
Thrones fans have seen practically nothing from the new season so far and over the next few months there are several key assets yet to be revealed. HBO has yet to release photos from the new season or a trailer of the eagerly awaited new season. There have been a couple teasers, a few seconds each, largely consisting of old footage.
The premiere date comes on the heels of HBO’s surprise announcement that Thrones will get a limited IMAX roll-out later this month. The big-screen presentation of HBO’s most successful series of all time begins Jan. 23 will include the final two episodes of season 4 and an exclusive trailer for the upcoming season. According to IMAX, this will mark the first time a TV series has been showcased in the format.
HBO also announced Thursday that Bill Maher’s Real Time talk-show has been renewed for a 14th and 15th season, and that comedian Tig Notaro (Transparent) has landed her first stand-up comedy special.
