Radio Times: Inside News from Poldark

In this week's Radio Times Debbie Horsfield, writer of the new adaptation of Poldark, talks about how the preparations for filming are going. Debbie says, "It's very exciting - we've just had our read-through and four days of rehearsals."

Debbie clears up the question of which accents will be used in the series. It seems that the actors will adopt a light Cornish accent for, as Debbie explains, "Hopefully the series will be shown around the world, so we have to strike a balance between our characters sounding authentic and being understood!"

Rehearsals for the cast have included deportment and dancing as well as yesterday's session with historical adviser Hannah Greig. In addition, Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza), Heida Reed (Elizabeth) and Aidan Turner (Ross) have all had riding lessons. Aidan has some experience of riding having learned to ride for The Hobbit. The dancing, too, should not be a problem for him, having trained in ballroom dancing as a youngster.

The filming of Poldark starts on 14 April, 2014 in Bristol and Cornwall.
