The Poldark Cast in Other Projects

Filming of  Poldark wrapped last September but, while we're all waiting patiently for it to appear on our TV screens, many of the cast are busy on other projects. Here's what some of them are up to:

Aidan Turner (Ross Poldark), is currently filming The Secret Scripture in Ireland. The film is based on Sebastian Barry's book of the same name about Roseanne, a woman recounting her life after 60 years in asylums in Ireland.  It is directed by Jim Sheridan. The cast also includes Vanessa Redgrave, Rooney Mara, Eric Bana, Theo James, Jack Reynor, Jeremy Irons and Tom Vaughan Lawlor.

This week Aidan has been filming in Kilkenny. It is reported that he is playing a member of the IRA so I wouldn't be at all surprised if it wasn't John Lavelle, who's described in the book as dark haired and pale skinned.

Update 4 Feb 2015.  Ah!  It seems my guess about his role was wrong. Aidan's management say he's playing Jack.
