It’s a 21st-century lens on the time period, but it’s honest. I (laughs) I went for him; I fell for him pretty quick. Jack: I think definitely George has a fair amount of Cary in him. His intentions and methods make sense to him, but not always in the long term, and he can convince himself of things that are not true — among them that Elizabeth and Ross have had a long term affair behind his back. Harriet is highly placed in society and a widow. So in series two Dwight’s role is much more integral to the mines and that whole community than he was before. George then had Ross arrested. Jack: That’s an interesting question. I always felt that he wanted her because he was envious of Ross and the obvious reason for her family name. Jace: George visits Elizabeth at the end of Season 1 after the wreck of George’s ship, and says that “He will no longer have his feelings misunderstand or his intentions.” What are his intentions at this point towards Elizabeth Poldark? Ross doesn’t pretend. George is striving for the kind of status and respect that he feels he deserves, having achieved what he has achieved. I think he protects himself by allowing both eventualities to be possible. Sure-- George is pathetic--he gets all sniveling when Elizabeth (lying about the paternity issue) threatens to leave their home, and let's be clear George is dishonorable and nasty and single minded. While the Presidential debate certainly offered up its own brand of drama, it also put Poldark’s second season on a temporary hold. "I didn’t George: How do you inspire such loyalty?

He is on But, I feel sorry for him. Not only is the show filled with lush scenery (waves crashing on rocks beneath dramatic cliffs, people riding horses in haste, etc. And George rarely stepped foot outside town so everything was I think he’s just, he’s expanding as a person. He’s definitely allowing himself to be in Ross’s face much more. His charity balls are all about seeking power, rather than helping the poor). I want George to be to an extent unpredictable. She is the first woman who interests him since Elizabeth’s death, so in a typical George manner, he decides he needs her. So I have to say that was a real pleasure for me. I think, you know, he can’t be deluding himself to the extent that he… You know, he knows that it’s much more likely that Ross is not going to be able to accept this offer, which is why he is armed with, “I knew you were going to say that. Make George the villain he deserves to be. George's sin, really, was that he wanted to control Morwenna and family wealth by marrying her off--Dwight's sin strikes me as worse (albeit not outside of what would have been typical male behavior back then.). Dwight, too, believes in the equality of man and tries to live according to his principles. Cary: These Poldarks have nothing beyond the name. George later tried to find where mine owners including Ross, were creating their own smelting company, which he manages to close by outbidding them. Sure, there were various strictures on women that made life hard for them, but I can't see Demelza making that series of decisions. He is… He represents something quite specific.

Francis: You may even buy your way into every club, mine, and drawing room in the county, but what you will never buy is nobility, or breeding, or even common decency. Why is George so desperate for Ross’s approval at this point?`. Jack: I think it is, you know, there’s definitely– class is definitely involved. is a layered and elaborate character. I think it’s more interesting to feel like, you know, you’re watching someone with the potential to behave well. I shy away from that description - what makes him so exciting is that he is As Poldark gallops into its second week, we’re starting to get the feel of the new series. Jack: Yeah, I think so too, because, exactly, for all the times that he could potentially show a bit of heart or a bit of conscience, there are the other times when he can show much more venom than you might expect. CLIP: George was unconcerned about using slave labour and was persuaded to invest, because it would expand the Warleggan empire internationally. until you work out the costume, even though you don’t want it to feel like a ], Here's the thing: George has no idea how bad the Reverend is.

You know, even with his uncle Cary, there’s a certain degree to which him and Cary don’t see eye to eye, and they fight, and Cary winds him up, and so that’s one relationship. I think the nice thing about George, which I’ve always said, is that there’s always justification for his behavior. He goes where he feels he can do the most good. He thought he was living the real world so he expected good and bad luck to be distributed randomly and roughly equally. Jace: Does he hate Ross enough to actually want him to swing at the gallows? He’s a kind of humanitarian; he wants to help the most vulnerable. 1x01 However, Valentine's biological father was Ross, unbeknown to George at the time, and many thought he looked like Ross. Her decision to marry him was both practical and eyeroll worthy. Yeah, it’s a funny one. George has a specific, clearly visualized plan for his future that he pursues with dogged determination. Do we? He began talking to her and doubting how the investment was high, but the reward unguaranted. Francis: He most certainly had not. George feels jealousy and admiration in spite of himself. . Dwight: Oh no he had not. George explained that Ross' inability to let Elizabeth go, and his own suspicions about Valentine had hounded her into an early grave. George had another idea in mind. Ross and Geoffrey Charles spoke to George there, in an effort to persuade George to fund Geoffrey Charles' education. They absolutely are pitched against each other, Ross is the person that has the I mean, on the one hand he does, on the other he doesn’t. Jack: Yes see again, this went back and forth, and we talked a lot about it, myself, and the director, and Debbie. And that’s kind of what’s happening there. He was ignoring Valentine until told by an hallucination of Elizabeth to at least say goodnight to their son, but when Valentine later showed George a picture of Elizabeth he shouted at him to never show it again. Jace: You anticipated my next question which was, “How do you see George’s relationship with his uncle Cary, and what does Cary represent to George?”. And Jack was fascinated to learn about He suspects that "his" baby with Elizabeth--Valentine--is actually Ross Poldark's but you get the sense that he's almost tricked himself into thinking the baby is his. Sometimes there's this one grain of humanity in him that makes me feel sympathy or want him to have a turn of character. You know, what he would want is he’d want, he’d want her as his wife, as his second in command, you know, as his trophy, I guess, to an extent. We’d love to know what you think of the podcast.

His grandfather was a mere blacksmith in St. Day. In series two, Ross becomes more vulnerable because of the situation he finds himself in at the end of the first series.
