Aussie actor Harry Richardson had to put in a lot of effort to get the Cornish accent right for “Poldark” TV series. A new video released by BBC shows the actor perfecting his accent. Meanwhile, a preview video of episode 3 has been released online.

Richardson (Drake Carne) had to practice saying words like “pasty” and “never say ‘rabbit’ in a boat.” Although the actor struggled at first, he managed to get the Cornish accent correctly. Watch the hilarious exchange on set in the video below.

The following part of the article contains minor spoilers. Readers who haven’t watched the first two episodes of the new season or don’t wish to know about the scenes in the trailer should stop reading here.

A preview of the next episode posted on YouTube shows Ross (Aidan Turner) in France, trying to get information about where his friend Dwight Enys (Luke Norris) has been locked up. He is accompanied by the pirate Tholly Tregirls (Sean Gilder) in this dangerous mission.

The situation looks bleak, with Ross trying to comfort an inconsolable Caroline Penvenen (Gabriella Wilde). But there is still hope. The only problem is that the rescue will take longer than originally planned, so Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) will have to deal with new problems at home all by herself.

George Warleggan (Jack Farthing) will assume the role of a magistrate in the next episode. One of his first tasks in his new position is to take on the Methodists challenging his authority. But what will he do once he finds out that the people he is looking for are actually Demelza’s brothers? There is a fragile peace between the two families at the moment, and the one person who is concerned the most about things spiraling out of control is Elizabeth (Heida Reed).
