Actress Uma Thurman is moving into a luxury new home in New York after scoring the property for $9 million (£6 million) less than the initial asking price.

The Kill Bill star has purchased a 13-room pad in the exclusive River House building in Manhattan, overlooking the East River, from romance author Barbara Taylor Bradford, more than three years after the writer first placed the expansive apartment up for sale.

The A Woman of Substance novelist initially tried to sell the spread in March, 2010 for just shy of $19 million (£12.7 million), but after slashing the cost numerous times, it was eventually picked up by Thurman earlier this month (Oct13) at $10 million (£6.7 million), reports the New York Post.
