Happy Birthday Eleanor Tomlinson! Eleanor, who plays Demelza in Poldark, is 23 today.
Eleanor is the daughter of singer Judith Hibbert and actor Malcolm Tomlinson. She was born in London but was brought up in Beverley, Yorkshire. As a child she dreamed of becoming a vet but one day, after watching her father on the set of The Bill she says,“I looked around and saw my dad having a great time and how much fun he could have experimenting with his character and everything that went into it. I just fell in love with it.”
Eleanor plays Isabelle in Jack and the Giant Slayer and Isabel Neville in The White Queen. Since season one of Poldark wrapped she has appeared in Alleycats, a film about illegal bike-racing, and Loving Vincent in which Aidan Turner is also cast.
