female gazing extra: sexy scything
It seems that all (ie, a couple) of the hot guys onscreen at the moment are into reaping. Above is Matthias Schoenaerts in Far from the Madding Crowd, and this is Aidan Turner in the new BBC adaptation of Poldark:
That image is actually from the production, with a makeup artist touching up some dirt or bruises, but I assure you, Cap’n Ross is shirtless through the actual scene. Alas, Schoenaerts remains fully clothed (but still delicious).
Two examples are perhaps only a coincidence. A third will confirm sexy scything as a trend. Perhaps some will pop up in Outlander or Turn? Redcoats really are all the rage at the moment, so the era is right for some more hot agriculture…
(Poldark has just finished up its BBC run and is available on iPlayer. It’s coming to PBS in the U.S. in June.)
