When Sean started on Poldark, it took make-up de­signer Pippa Woods two hours to cre­ate Tholly’s look every day, but now they have it down to a con­sid­er­ably less daunt­ing 60 min­utes.

‘In Win­ston Gra­ham’s books, there’s a won­der­ful line which says Tholly’s scar makes ross’s scar look like a cat scratch so Pippa went to town on that and the make-up is amaz­ing,’ says Sean. ‘Pippa uses three pros­thet­ics on my face to cre­ate the tem­plate of one long scar and then adds lit­tle bits of dried fish skin – a prod­uct which is used to make skin look as if it’s died – to pull the eye down. Then Pippa adds an­other scar on top of it. At the end of the day, it takes be­tween 30-45 min­utes to take it all off.’

Some­thing fishy’s go­ing on in make-up as… …a huge fake scar is ap­plied to a smil­ing Sean… …to make him look every inch the buc­ca­neer!
