The Irish boy is back…. Aidan Turner, Poldark

I tried so hard not to watch it; I knew if I did I would be back on that exhausting, delicious, captivating Poldark wagon, of waiting with baited breath for seven days before the next snippet of the story.

This 1970’s classic remake has it all; beautifully shot and directed, passionate wild countryside, a stunning, complex, haunting, stubborn leading man, a beautiful adoring wife, a ‘still under the skin’ ex, rich versus poor, callous dark ‘friends’ and honourable self-effacing ones. A vibrant feast of survival, class struggle, rivalry, death, drama, longing… and a lovely horse called Seamus.

 Am exhausted with it already and it has only been one week. You have me trapped again Winston Graham, what a great Author.  Love it that the protagonist was inspired by a fighter pilot you met on a train during WWII.

Here is a candid clip of leading man, Aidan Turner, explaining his thoughts behind the Ross Poldark character. I love it when a giggly gushing woman in the audience tries to ask him a question; he smiles and pulls his jacket tight around his body, subconsciously hiding his sexiness. I thought women only did that to help men out… (smile).
