Filming for any funeral scene must be a very difficult experience for any actor / actress but filming scenes for one of the saddest moments in American history must be doubly hard. Katie Holmes has just filmed scenes for a new TV mini series based around the Kennedy family and The Daily Mail has photos of the actress shooting the famous funeral.

Jackie Kennedy

Holmes is playing Jackie Kennedy, wife to John F. Kennedy who was assassinated  on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. Lee Harvey Oswaldwas charged with the crime but was shot 2 days later before he could ever face trial.

‘The Kennedys’ is set to air on the History Channel in the US next year. Hopefully it’ll make it’s way over here too.

Head over to The Daily Mail website for many more on-set photos.
