Tom York (Sam Carne) is the latest addition to the “Poldark” cast. In a newly released video, the actor spoke about what it was like to join the cast and play this important new character. The following article contains minor spoilers.

“Sam brings a completely new energy to ‘Poldark,’” York said in the video (see below). The character is a devout Methodist, who came to his new home with sister Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) with a mission.

It didn’t take long for Sam to gather people and start preaching. What York didn’t know while accepting the role was that there would be singing involved. These episodes have already aired.

Sam has an interesting relationship with his sister. While he is deeply religious, Demelza is more practical in her approach to life. Despite their best attempts to reconcile this fundamental difference, York pointed out that there’s always friction between the two on the question of God.

Joining a well-established show with cast members like Tomlinson and Aidan Turner (Ross) can be a challenge at first. The actor said that all veteran actors welcomed the newcomers and made them feel at home.

Apart from York, the other new additions were Harry Richardson (Drake), Ellise Chappell (Morwenna) and Harry Marcus (Geoffrey Charles). York said that all new cast members formed a bond on set.

Filming of “Poldark” season 4 is currently ongoing. The show is set to return sometime next year. The producers are yet to announce an exact release date. All popular characters will return with yet another adventure, and this time, the fight between Ross and George Warleggan (Jack Farthing) is set to intensify.
