Suranne Jones was seen wearing a protective visor while getting to work on set of Gentleman Jack’s second season in West Yorkshire on Monday. 

The Doctor Foster star, 42, transformed into her character Anne Lister as she donned a black dress to embody the 19th century landowner. 

Keeping safe amid the coronavirus crisis, Suranne made sure to wear a face shield in between takes and when she arrived before filming began.

Suranne wore her brunette locks in three buns to adopt her character’s classic look, while she stepped out in black shoes.

As she arrived on set, Suranne took off her face shield and gave it to a member of the crew so that she could get ready for the day of shooting.

However she made sure to wear it whenever she wasn’t shooting, as an insider said: ‘As soon as she finished the scene she reached for her visor. She is clearly taking no chances.

‘She had one of her staff ready to hand it to her as she walked off set. It was weird watching her put it on while still in 1830s costume.

‘Some people on set are still obviously in a state of shock about the second lockdown. But she was very cheery.’

The source added that Suranne always has ‘a smile on her face’ while working on set, and tries to cheer the cast and crew up between takes. 

Other members of the cast could be seen in full period costume as they kept their masks on while waiting for cameras to roll. 

The insider added that the cast always keep their masks close to hand so that they can put them on whenever they’re not filming.

The show, written by Sally Wainwright, is based on the diaries of 19th century landowner Anne Lister, who is often dubbed Britain’s ‘first modern lesbian’. 

The first series followed Anne as she embarked on a relationship with fellow heiress Ann Walker, after enjoying several relationships with other women. 

After falling in love, the pair were torn apart when Ann was taken to Scotland, under threat of being married off by her brother-in-law. 

However the finale saw the pair brought back together when Ann was called back to Yorkshire to visit her bedridden aunt.

Their reunion took place in a dramatic hilltop moment in which Ann revealed she was finally ready to marry Anne.  

Anne confessed her continued love for Ann, saying: ‘Do you know I don’t think one hour passed when I didn’t think of you. I tried not to.’

‘If you asked me to marry you again I wouldn’t say No,’ Ann promised. ‘But would you say yes?’ Anne checked quickly.

‘Yes. I love you,’ the younger girl sighed, touching the heroine’s face. ‘I’m in love with you. I always have been.’

‘Don’t hurt me,’ muttered Lister back, unexpectedly, poignantly. ‘I’m not as strong as you think…Well I am obviously. But sometimes I’m not.’ 

The second series will follow the couple as Ann moves in with Anne in Shibden Hall – and embarked on their life as wife and wife.
