Lily James sweetly cradles a baby as she films the tragic funeral scene for new wrestling flick The Iron Claw

Lily James was seen cradling a baby while filming a poignant funeral scene for the new wrestling movie, The Iron Claw, on Monday.

The actress, 33, whose role in the film has yet to be announced, wore a black coat and her locks in an updo as she held the baby while surrounded by mourners and stood next to a coffin.

In between takes, the star was seen playing with the baby, holding the child in the air and smiling at them as she prepared to shoot.

The British actress was surrounded by extras dressed in funeral clothes while filming for the open-air funeral scenes.

Iron Claw is an upcoming sports biopic about the rise and fall of the struggling Von Erich family written and directed by Sean Durkin – starring the titular character Kevin Von Erich played by Zac Efron.

It is not known who the funeral service is for, but the Von Erich family was beset by a tragedy in which five of the six sons in the family died young.

The biopic’s title is based on the family’s legendary finish.

The Von Erich family had a huge impact on the sport and was famous in the 1960s until disaster descended upon the clan.

Only Kevin survived his father Fritz, who died in 1997 at the age of 68 after a battle with lung cancer.

Fritz Von Erich is played by Holt McCallany.

Harris Dickinson plays the third son, David Von Erich – aka The Yellow Rose of Texas.

David was the best wrestler of the brothers, but died of acute upper intestinal enteritis at the age of 26.

However, there has been much speculation that he died of a drug overdose.

There were claims that the wrestler who found him had disposed of narcotics before police arrived.

Kerry Von Erich, perhaps the most famous wrestler in the family, died at the age of 33 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound on his father’s ranch.

While no official release date has been announced yet, fans can expect to see the movie sometime in 2023.

The film is produced and distributed by A24.
