Style queen Eleanor Tomlinson from Poldark wasn't always so glam
We were pretty sure we recognised Demelza from Poldark – AKA Eleanor Tomlinson – from something we loved in our younger days.
Then it dawned on us.
Ever seen Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging? Yep, Eleanor played one of the main characters, Jas, in the hit teen romcom – and we can’t believe how different she looks now!
Back then, we all LOLed through the movie as teenage Jas struggled with boys, school and puberty issues as she began to blossom into the gorgeous woman we know today.
Now, Eleanor Tomlinson, 22, is an absolute bombshell and one of the biggest fashionistas going. With her fiery red hair and killer smile, there aren’t many people to rival the actress we know now.
Plus, working alongside Aidan Turner automatically gives you another 1000 points in gorgeousness. Swooon!
Since her role in Angus Thongs, Eleanor has featured in Alice In Wonderland, Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Death Comes to Pemberley.
She’s often spotted being an absolute style icon at fashion parties around London, and even rocked the BAFTAs in a sheer, embroided Boro Aksu dress.
Eleanor’s character in Poldark, Demelza Carne, is a kitchen maid, after Ross rescued her from a life of violence at the hands of her alcoholic father.
‘For me, Demelza was the character who really stood out as having the most inctredible jouney in Debbie Horsfield‘s script,’ said Eleanor. ‘She is extremely resilient and has this streetwise edge to her but she never becomes too hard. She has to be vastly different to Elizabeth (Ross’s childhood sweetheart) but you still have to love her. So for me, that was really interesting to play.
‘There’s a vulnerability in the character which I really liked. Female roles as strong as this don’t come around very often.’
Apart from, of course, young Jas in Angus Thongs. There’s hope for us all…
