This is an area where the technology of the e-cigarette could shine. Put in a 0-nicotine cartridge, disguise the end if needed with tappable ash, and away you go.

The advent of this technology should allow England to remove the loophole from its law as well, instead of having Wales backpedal.

They will only set the scenery and sets on fire, as they are usually drunk as well.

There are many places in the US with this sort of "free speech" exemption written into their smoking regulations. In some, it only applies if the smoking is an important element in the sense of the scene. As noted, though, there is technology readily available that would negate the need for such exemptions. They use prop knives and blank bullets to avoid actual harm to actors, why should they permit real tobacco smoke?

why not use cigarettes that do not contain tobacco as the prohibition is on tobacco i.e cigerettes filled with dried mint or something

Why don't you smoke dried mint or something and let adults decide for themselves what they want to smoke.
