Cv so far: award-winning playwright and actor luke is perhaps best known for playing dr dwight enys in Poldark. Fans of the BBC1 costume saga were enchanted by the slow-burning romance between dishy dwight and high-maintenance heiress caroline penvenen (Gabriella wilde) in the last series.
Plans for summer: the ‘proud essex boy’, 31, will be getting more screen time when Poldark returns for its third series. dwight joined the navy at the end of series two, and now that england and France are at war, he finds himself in the midst of a protracted conflict and in serious peril. will dwight make it to the end of the series?
luke says: ‘dwight has quite a journey this series, he gets himself into a few scrapes…’
TV Times verdict: Move over, aidan turner (ross poldark)!
