GENTLEMAN Jack’s Suranne Jones clashes with on-screen wife Sophie Rundle in tense filming pictures from series two.
The actresses have been busy filming new scenes for the BBC period drama in Yorkshire this week, with Suranne playing Halifax landowner Anne Lister and Sophie starring as her lover and now wife, Ann Walker.

While the women were seen sharing a laugh and a joke on set earlier this week, their latest scene required them to ditch the smiles and look tense.
Sophie could be seen dressed as Ann in a pale blue gown and matching hat, while Suranne was dressed in typical Anne style of black skirt, white high-necked blouse and black waistcoat.
There appeared to be tension between the two characters after Ann arrived in a horse and carriage, while extras in period costume milled around them.
In between takes, Suranne clutched a pink fluffy hot water bottle for warmth while Sophie had her make up topped up by crew members who all wore protective face masks and shields under the new Covid-19 regulations.

Writer Sally Wainwright recently hinted that the women’s relationship would cause tension.
She told Digital Spy: “They move into Shibden together in series two and it’s about how they negotiate their married life, conspicuously in public, and how they deal with their detractors and the effect that has on their relationship as well.”
The BBC period drama is based on the real life diaries of Anne, who bucked the social norms of her time to pursue a romantic relationship with Ann.
Anne was such a diligent diary keeper that Sally also shared her hopes for the series to continue for years to come.

She said: “Obviously we’ve got season two, which is fantastic, and I hope it will continue on after that.
“There’s no end of stories, the diaries, this huge wealth of knowledge.”
It has not yet been confirmed when season two will air on the BBC.
