Eleanor Tomlinson Might Have Played Elizabeth

Eleanor Tomlinson plays Demelza in the new BBC adaptation of Poldark but things could well have turned out differently if Eleanor hadn't decided to make her own luck.

Eleanor was initially asked to read for the part of Elizabeth, Ross's love who marries his cousin Francis. But Eleanor asked if she could audition for Demelza.
In an interview with Screen Daily Eleanor says “This whole industry is about snapping up the opportunities as they come.
“Demelza was the part, so I asked could I try for her.” 

And the rest, as they say, is history. Eleanor got the role of Demelza and Heida Reed that of Elizabeth.
