Welsh actor Richard Harrington will play Captain Andrew Blamey in Poldark 2015. Andrew Blamey is the quick-tempered captain who Verity Poldark falls in love with.

Richard Harrington played Gabriel Cochrane in Lark Rise to Candleford. Among his many other credits are Bleak HouseSpooks and most recently Hinterland. He won a BAFTA Cymru Award for best actor for his role in the film Dayfdd in 1995.

He was recently invited by BBC Wales to share his musical memories on Radio Wales and here is his playlist.

Richard plays the drums and is also a runner, having competed in several marathons since first running the London Marathon in 2007. This year he took part in the Marathon des Sables which is ranked by the Discovery Channel as the toughest footrace on earth. Yes! It goes through the Sahara. Richard ran with Mark Lewis Jones to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. You can donate here
