Gabriella is in the Winter issue of Town & Country (UK) magazine, here’s a first look at her new photoshoot and interview.
TOWN & COUNTRY – The actress and model Gabriella Wilde is every bit the carefree English rose of the fashion world, yet her pseudonym conceals her aristocratic heritage. Here, the scion of the Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe clan tells Sasha Slater about her role on the new series of Poldark and family life in the country as she wear’s A/W 15’s dresses with her signature poise…
Poldark may have been notable last season principally for Aidan Turner’s impressive topless scything skills. But the next series of the Cornish bodice ripper will be lightened up by Gabriella Wilde, playing a saucy young heiress, Caroline Penvenen, come to sow chaos among the copper mines. ‘She’s fun, bright, witty, but she can be badly behaved at times… she ruffles a few feathers,’ says Wilde.
By contrast, the actress herself is blissfully domesticated. She married Alan Pownall, the lead singer of the electro- pop band Pale, last September, and together they have a son, Sasha, who is now almost two years old. Home for the family is three old farm cottages knocked together in Somerset: ‘I grew up in the country,’ she says. ‘So I always knew I wouldn’t bring up my children in London. It’s too hectic.’
This is not yet a bucolic haven though, and sounds quite as chaotic as the capital: ‘We’re knee deep in mud and dust because we’re doing the house up,’ she says with a sigh. ‘And my husband’s here most of the time running the building work.’ She also recently added a huge-pawed and clumsy Italian mastiff puppy called Turtle to the mix.
Wilde started her career as a teenage model before mov- ing on to acting, and has starred in The Three Musketeers opposite Orlando Bloom, a remake of the horror film Carrie and the first-love melodrama Endless Love with Alex Pettyfer. ‘Modelling is something that goes hand in hand with act- ing these days,’ she says. ‘And I enjoy it more than I used to – my involvement in the creative process is deeper.’ As one of the faces of Estée Lauder, and a permanent fixture on Poldark, she is looking for ‘a life that’s more predictable, one where you can build relationships and you’re not just flying in and out. Modelling can be very transitory, and that’s not what I want’.

THE GUARDIAN – Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson will reunite for an extended 10-part run of BBC1’s Poldark, two more than the first series of the most talked about drama of the year.
Filming on the second series began in Cornwall this week, with the BBC hoping to build on the success of the first run which peaked with nearly 10 million viewers and prompted an unlikely national debate about topless scything.
New additions include former Midsomer Murders star John Nettles, who will play one of the county’s wealthiest landowners, as well as Gabriella Wilde (Endless Love) and W1A’s Hugh Skinner.
Debbie Horsfield will adapt all 10 episodes from the acclaimed novels by Winston Graham, set in 1790, with “riot and revolution in the air. Ross Poldark must once again fight for his freedom … Can Demelza save Ross from himself?”
Turner said the new series “presents a whole new set of challenges for both him and me and I can’t wait for it to kick off again”.
Polly Hill, controller BBC drama commissioning, said Horsfield had done a “magnificent job once again, bringing the next two books to screen – so much happens she needed a further two episodes”.
Back in 2010, Gabriella appeared in one episode of ‘Doctor Who’ series five as a vampire. I’ve replaced the still with a better version and also added a high quality promotionaL picture to the gallery.
Hello! According to Robin Ellis, Gabriella was cast on BBC’s One ‘Poldark’ as Caroline Penvenen! As a huge fan of the tv series, I am beyond excited to see her in this new project (and I totally recommend it). There’s no confirmation yet, except this picture below but as soon as we have more information, I will share them here and on twitter.
