Poldark Filming Returns to Chavenage House

Looks like filming on Poldark has gone full circle. Yesterday, it seems, they were back where it all began last April:  filming at Chavenage House.

Make-up artist Laura Viana Da Silva posted this photo of yesterday’s filming with the comment that it was a beautiful day.

The first picture from the set, posted by BBC, showed Chavenage House where Poldark filming began on 14 April, 2014.

Here are Rupert and Seamus, two Atkinson Action Horses, on the set of Poldark. 

Seamus is ridden by Aidan Turner (Ross) and Rupert by Warren Clarke (Charles Poldark). Unfortunately Tzan, the horse being ridden by Kyle Soller (Francis), is hidden from view.

Rupert is 18 and is pure Irish Draught. When I spoke to Mark Atkinson of Atkinson Action Horses earlier in the year, he told me that Rupert is one of their best horses. He’s even worked at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, where he was ridden on stage by the lead singer in Falstaff.

In case you missed them, here are our earlier articles on  Seamus and Poldark's Horses but, for more on Rupert, check out the video below.




These are some more behind-the-scenes photos I got when I saw Poldark being filmed at Charlestown back in June. I’ll never forget this day when I got to talk to Aidan!! It was completely amazing :D I also saw Ruby Bentall there too (in the first pic). Personally, I love the one with the barrel… shouldn’t he be inside it? ;)
