Drake and Sam Carne, Demelza's brothers, and Morwenna, Elizabeth's cousin, have been cast in Poldark S3 and don't they all look just right?

If you haven't read the books then let me just say that these are important characters with some of the best story lines and are very much a part of the Poldark saga.
Sam takes after his father and is a devout Methodist holding on to his faith no matter what he faces. He'll be played by Tom York whose credits include two other Mammoth Screen productions Endeavour and Agatha Raisin. He was also in an episode of Death in Paradise earlier this year (but not the same one as Heida Reed). Tom comes from Hampshire. He trained at LAMDA in London for four years from the unusually young age of 17. You can follow him on Twitter at @TomYork_
Harry Richardson has been cast as Drake, the good-natured younger brother who knows how he should behave but can't resist going his own way. Harry was one of the leads in the period drama Doctor Thorne. He graduated from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts in 2014 and, although he has lived in Australia for some years, he went to school in England until he was 12.
Morwenna comes to live in Trenwith as governess to Elizabeth and Francis's son Geoffrey Charles. Ellise Chappell has been cast in the role. Last year Ellise appeared in the National Youth Theatre's REP Season and she was on our TV screens recently in the drama New Blood. Ellise's Twitter is @Ellisehere
Filming on Poldark S3 started this week so the cast are already busy.
But what I want to know is, who is playing Hugh Armitage?
