Poldark producer defends Aidan Turner making more money than co-star Eleanor Tomlinson
Tomlinson recently pointed out the unequal pay, telling Red magazine: "While at the beginning that might have been okay – he was a bigger star than me – now I don't think so," she said. "We're equal leads of the show, so I'd be pretty upset if the gap hadn't closed." Poldark producer Mammoth Screen defended its decision to pay Turner more, noting that Turner is playing the title character of Ross Poldark and he has "significantly more screen time than any other character."
