While production of “Poldark” season 4 is ongoing, fans in the US are currently watching season 3. A new behind-the-scenes video has now been released, showing the filming of the first meeting between Drake Carne (Harry Richardson) and Morwenna (Ellise Chappell) on the beach. The cast members also spoke about the relationship between these two important characters.

In the video (see below), director Joss Agnew explains how the scene is important for the relationship between Morwenna and Drake. After their first meeting, an instant attraction, they discover how perfect they are as a pair.

The beautiful beach setting at Holywell Bay added to the magic of their relationship. Chappell said her character is the daughter of a dean, who is very dutiful. After growing up in a town, the sights and sounds of the beach are “breathtaking” for her.

Richardson says his character and Morwenna are similar because they are both “free spirits.” Drake “delights in the natural world,” the actor says, and Morwenna is “infected” by this after she starts spending time with him.

Chappell calls Morwenna and Drake “kindred spirits.” The relationship of these characters will have an impact on those close to them.

The scene filmed in the behind-the-scenes video is that of Drake taking Morwenna and Geoffrey Charles (Harry Marcus) to a cave at the beach with holy well in it. Although the two are attracted to each other, there are issues that drive them apart. Apart from the feud between Ross (Aidan Turner) and George (Jack Farthing), there is also the question of people from different class getting too close.
