The man who plays Ross Poldark in the new TV series reveals he wants to live in Cornwall.
The remake of the 1970s drama, set around life on the mine near Helston, hits our screens.
It tells the story of owner Ross Poldark, who returns from the American Revolutionary War to find his father dead and his fiancee, Elizabeth Chynoweth, about to marry his cousin after she believed he was dead.
Scenes were filmed in places like Land’s End, Gunwalloe on the Lizard, Padstow, Charlestown and Bodmin Moor.
Actor Aidan Turner has described the Duchy as ‘stunning’ and ‘gorgeous’: “You kind of really feel it, you know, when you’re on a horse and you’re just faced with this epic landscape. It does ground you and you don’t feel like you need to think about things too much; you can just kind of exist in the characters and in that moment.”
