There seems to be something about Eleanor Tomlinson that makes people think of the past. The English actress has played some contemporary characters, but she’s often cast in period pieces, including her film debut THE ILLUSIONIST, followed by the features ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Victorian England) and JACK THE GIANT SLAYER (unspecified medieval England) and the miniseries DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLEY (Jane Austen’s England) and THE WHITE QUEEN (the War of the Roses).

In POLDARK, in its first season in the U.S. on PBS’ Masterpiece Theatre Sunday nights and renewed for a second, Turner is still playing someone who is brooding and romantic, but he’s at least human. His character […]Read On »

Release Date: February 28, 2013 First of all, let’s clear up one misconception that may or may not be popular: JACK THE GIANT SLAYER isn’t a hyperactive attempt to soup up the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk (at least, not wholly), but rather a marriage that familiar myth with a slightly less well-known but still famed folktale from Cornwall.
