I discovered Poldark. It’s a BBC One show. Then it was a PBS Masterpiece Theater show. Now it’s an Amazon Prime show. When it played, I didn’t know about it. It showed a year ago. What can I say? I’m a slow learner.
And it wasn’t huge in the U.S. It was huge in the U.K., though. HUGE. GIANT.
I CANNOT wait for season 2.
So I googled when the next season would be broadcast.
I found out Aidan Turner, who plays Poldark, is the sexiest man in the WORLD according Glamour mag. There was a picture of him, shirtless, with a scythe that was all over newspapers and magazines and the Internet. And he won the Impact Award which means the show had the biggest impact on British Television.
I found his acceptance speech.
I also found out that Aidan Turner starred in And Then There was None.
I watched that.
I found out Aidan Turner is 32 and from Ireland. Eleanor Tomlinson is 23 and the man who played the judge originally played Poldark in the 60’s.
I found out they film the show in Cornwall and I found out it is based on a series of books by Winston Graham. The books are very popular across the pond as well.
I ordered the first one.
I also watched an interview with the actors and found out that it’s very uncomfortable to ride with two people on the same horse.
I still have no idea when season 2 will air.
