William McGregor to Direct Poldark

William McGregor is to direct the new BBC series of Poldark!

Last night William tweeted

@WillieMcGregor The good old Beeb have decided to put some young scally at the helm of their new Sunday night period drama :) No pressure! #POLDARK #BBC

then sent me a tweet saying

@WillieMcGregor @Poldarked very exciting! I love the scripts.


William will be directing the Poldark episodes five to eight and says he has, "four very good scripts". As previously announced, Ed Bazalgette (The Guilty, Endeavour) is directing the first four episodes.

William is a talented, award-winning director. He is the youngest ever director of the cult TV show Misfits - even now only being in his mid-twenties.
William's first feature film is currently in development. It's called The Rising and is set in the industrial revolution. With his visually exciting style, William also directs trailers and commercials for the Oscar and BAFTA award winning visual effects company, The Mill.

In the video below William talks about what inspires him, the secret of his success and says how he wants to make things, "that are important to me".

Oh - and he has a rather disarming smile!
