I think he’s naturally drawn to Annie, almost immediately.
Lenora: I think that’s true of all of their relationships.
It seems as though it’s the most basic supernatural idea possible, in some ways, but Toby has created this show that stands on its own, which is really cool. Lenora: Annie is beautifully, fantastically, wonderfully fit, and Mitchell is all right, in the right light, but I think their connection is deeper than that. He’s been running for so long from this problem and this disease that he has.
Suddenly, he moves in with a wolf, which is something he never would have done before and, in a lot of ways, Annie is the anchor in the house because she doesn’t go anywhere and she’s such a nurturing person. He needs someone to look after him ‘cause he doesn’t have anybody else.
For these characters, there isn’t really anything to live for because they’ve got these things forever.
Annie could just not get out of bed in the morning, quite understandably. As much as she grows and develops, and discovers this and that, she’s stuck, and the same with Mitchell.

During a recent interview, co-stars Aidan Turner, Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Sinead Keenan talked about expanding the world in Season 2, hinted at the possibilities of Season 3 and revealed how lucky they feel to be a part of something that is so special to them. Then, I read it and realized it was just so much more than that. The levels in this show are so much more human than they are supernatural.
When you’re in that moment, do you ever go off script? I can riff for hours and do a whole episode of just improvising, but it never stays in. I love watching Nina/George scenes because what is really beautiful is that they’re listening to each other.
It’s not even on the DVD extras, so you’ll never see it. You can put the odd line or word in, but you want to respect what’s written there, a lot of the time, because it’s good enough anyway, and who are we to elaborate. A lot of the time, especially with TV, there’s such a turn-over with actors.
The Poldark heartthrob and his ex, who split back in 2011, have been pictured looking very cosy at a party in Los Angeles over the weekend.
