Eleanor Tomlinson shared a sweet snap with her Poldark co-star Aidan Turner, as filming on the series’ fifth, and final, season came to an end in Bristol, on Sunday.
The actress, 26, planted a kiss on the 35-year-old actor’s cheek while holding his face, while he wrapped an arm around her shoulders and smiled.
Wearing a red dress to transform into her character Demelza, Eleanor gushed about the cast and crew as she expressed her gratitude for working with them on the show.

Eleanor wrote: ‘“Life is precious and should not be scorned. The thing is to find some purpose, to go on living.” Goodbye Poldark.
‘Thank you to the incredible cast and crew that have made this series over the last 5 years. What a family we are’
The onscreen couple also looked sweet in a second image, which saw Aidan kissing his co-star on the cheek as he carried a clapperboard for the final scene in his hand, while Eleanor beamed beside him and hugged his hunky torso tightly.

Eleanor’s post comes after series writer Debbie Horsfield and producer Karen Thrussell revealed they are hoping to produce another series focusing on the life of a 40-year-old Ross Poldark.
The duo behind the successful drama revealed the news at the Radio Times Covers Party on Thursday, admitting there is still some way to go before they exhaust the original source material.
‘There are five more books we could do in future possibly,’ said Karen. ‘If we did a Poldark six – and a lot of us would like to do it – it wouldn’t be for a few years yet’.

She added: ‘Ross would be in his 40s… [and] I think we would probably focus on Ross and Demelza because we love them so much. The books are really great.
‘I think for me, it would be a real honour to finish them because the 1970s series didn’t finish them, they stopped where we are stopping now. And as a reader of the books… [who] loves the books… I would love to get to the end.’
While Debbie added: ‘I would never say never. We have had such an amazing time on this, so who knows?’.
She later insisted there were no official conversations between herself and the BBC team but would be open to returning to Cornwall sometime in the future.

Earlier last year, Debbie told fans that season five of the show would be ‘the last series in the Poldark chronicle…for now’, but there are four more books written by Winston Graham before his death in 2003.
The London born stunner told Town & Country UK last year: ‘I see it as a privilege to be part of Poldark’.
‘I feel extremely lucky to be working, and it has opened up so many doors for me.
‘Without sounding too corny, it’s taught me about the kind of actress I want to be; and playing Demelza has shown me how to be fearless and follow my heart.’
