DEMELZA POLDARK

TV Times - - Cover Story - (Eleanor Tom­lin­son)

I think Ross is go­ing to get what he

de­serves!

‘Iwas very ex­cited to see who would be hugh – who could pos­si­bly com­pete with ross? it’s my sec­ond project with Josh. it’s great to have him on the show and ex­plore these sto­ry­lines,’ says eleanor.

‘i think ross is go­ing to get what he de­serves! demelza’s flat­tered to have some­one pay­ing at­ten­tion to her. ross plays the hero a lot of the time and doesn’t deal with sit­u­a­tions closer to home.

‘What is so at­trac­tive to demelza about hugh is that he ap­pre­ci­ates

her for who she is – she’s not per­fect and she isn’t an aris­to­crat. the re­la­tion­ship be­tween them doesn’t de­lib­er­ately come into the show to cre­ate scan­dal. it’s a friend­ship more than any­thing, it’s not a hot steamy ro­mance. it’s a slow-burner that comes from be­ing left be­hind and ig­nored by her hus­band, who doesn’t open up to her or in­clude her in de­ci­sions.

‘play­ing a woman in a mar­riage that isn’t all roses has been in­ter­est­ing. you of­ten see hol­ly­wood-ised ro­mances but ross and demelza’s is very real. i think that’s what peo­ple re­late to.’
