MARIE CLAIRE UK – Gabriella Wilde has ticked a lot of life boxes for someone who hasn’t yet broken 30: a modelling career, marriage, two children, six movies and even (at one point) the dubious title of ‘second most eligible woman in Britain’.

Wilde isn’t going to add that last one to her Twitter bio any time soon, and not just because she’s now married to the musician Alan Pownall. ‘I mean, what do people even qualify as eligible?’ she scoffs. ‘It’s just nonsense!’

In any case, Wilde, 28, is now best known for her role as the pug-carrying heiress Caroline Penvenen in BBC One’s Poldark, a part she won just before finding out she was pregnant with her second son, Shiloh. ‘I told them early on, I was only a matter of weeks [pregnant],’ she says. ‘I wanted to be up front, as I saw no reason why I couldn’t still do it.’

After an initial moment of panic, the show’s producer and writer Debbie Horsfield – a mother of four herself – said, ‘If she thinks she can do it, why shouldn’t she?’ Some bump-disguising period dress and camera trickery enabled her to shoot way into her third trimester.

When she returned to film season three her costumes were adapted so she could pop back to her trailer to breastfeed Shiloh between takes. ‘I really don’t think that’s the norm,’ she says of the whole experience. ‘It was lovely to be able to show people that I was just as capable of getting the job done. But yeah… it was tiring.’

Wilde lives an hour away from the Bristol Poldark set (only the outdoor bits are filmed in Cornwall) in a house in the Somerset countryside that she and her husband Alan renovated. She wanted to give her children the same mud-spattered, outdoorsy life she enjoyed as a child, running around with her younger sister and five half-siblings.

Wilde’s parents are the former model Vanessa and businessman John Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, and she shares a half-sister with Prince Harry’s ex Cressida Bonas. ‘I have a big, mixed family from different marriages,’ she says, ‘so [my childhood] was always pretty colourful and wonderful. I grew up in a house full of women; I had all my sisters like an army around me before I’d even tried to make friends.’

TOWN & COUNTRY – It seems to be Gabriella Wilde’s fate to be surrounded by highly-strung animals. At the Town & Country photo-shoot, she played second fiddle to a truculent peacock who had his own ideas about what constituted a good pose. And, as fans of the period blockbuster Poldark will know, she spends a large portion of her working life in the company of a little black-faced pug. Playing the deliciously manipulative heiress Caroline Penvenen, Wilde has brought a touch of glamour to the 18th-century copper mines, capturing the heart of the local doctor and defying her guardian, all the while with a lapdog clasped to her chest.

“I don’t think anyone anticipated how difficult it would be to film with a pug,” she says. “They’re so noisy – Horace snuffled over every track so each bit of the recording had to be edited. But the dog was perfect for Caroline – she’s like a child at the beginning, very young and naive, and her pet almost fulfilled the role of a teddy bear.”

There was another reason that Horace featured so prominently in Poldark; he was a convenient prop to shield Wilde’s figure, as shooting of season two coincided with her second pregnancy. “I got the role and three days later I discovered that I was pregnant,” she says. “As it was a seven-month shoot, I assumed that I probably couldn’t take it. But the writer and producer Debbie Horsfield said, ‘Hang on a second, why can’t we do this? Why can’t she work, and be a mother and pregnant, if she feels that she can?’ So we made it happen, which has been really wonderful and quite refreshing. They even let me bring Shiloh on set for the latest series when he was just a couple of months old. In my industry, it’s often assumed that if you have babies, then you’re not going to have your career.”
