Poldark star Eleanor Thompson, 30, will play the redheaded love cheat in Netflix’s remake of the hit movie One Day, originally starring Anne Hathaway, as she is seen filming the soon-to-be-released series at the south west london.
She became famous as Demelza, the demure wife of Captain Ross Poldark, who later became a no-nonsense feminist.
But now actress Eleanor Tomlinson has landed a far more risqué role as a seductive love trap in a Netflix remake of the hit movie One Day.
The Mail on Sunday may reveal that she will play Sylvie, the wife of main character Dexter Mayhew, who ends up in bed with another man while her husband and baby Jasmine are home.
Miss Tomlinson, 30, was seen filming scenes in south-west London last week alongside Leo Woodall, who will play Dexter in the upcoming series.
He previously starred in the Sky Atlantic drama The White Lotus.

Dressed in jeans and a sweater, Eleanor was all smiles as she stood in front of a Victorian house believed to be Dexter and Sylvie’s marital home. She was played in the film version of Romola Garai.
Also seen was Blackadder star Tim McInnerny, who is believed to be playing Dexter’s father Steven, a role previously played by Ken Stott.
The scenes see Dexter and Sylvie accompanied by friends.
The lead character Emma Morley, who was played by Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway in the film, will this time be played by Ambika Mod, star of the medical comedy-drama This Is Going To Hurt, which was broadcast on the BBC earlier in this year. In that series, she appeared as the female lead, Shruti Acharya, alongside Ben Whishaw, who played Doctor Adam Kay.
The One Day remake, like the 2011 film, is an adaptation of David Nicholls’ best-selling 2009 novel.
It traces a series of intense personal encounters between Emma and Dexter, who first meet on the day of their graduation from Edinburgh University on July 15, 1988. They spend a platonic night together and agree to just be friends. The drama offers a snapshot of their lives on the same day, July 15, Saint Swithin’s Day, for the next 20 years.

Dexter, who becomes a TV host, and Emma, a teacher and later a writer, move on in life and find other partners, but after Dexter’s divorce from Sylvie, they decide they want to be together and have a baby. . However, when tragedy strikes later, his dream comes to an abrupt end.
Filming for the Netflix series began in London last month and will also take place in Edinburgh.
David Nicholls has previously said that he was inspired to write One Day after spending a summer in Edinburgh working at the Fringe comedy and arts festival.
He received an honorary degree from the university in 2015.
