    Aidan is talented, and fun loving of life. He appears to perform his roles very convincingly. And in his laugh, smile and his smouldering looks gives him a strong sex appeal

  • Susie Q Makes

    I agree Aidan is very talented and Poldark was well written and acted as always on PBS. Can’t wait for season 2 of Poldark.

  • Emily Hehn

    Just a few friendly editorial suggestions:
    Title: TEN Things, not Then Things.
    Paragraph three: destroyed not destroys.
    Paragraph six: space after The Hobbit
    Some of your commas are unnecessary but I’m trying to not be too picky.
    Other than the grammatical errors I thought this was a nice article.

    Aiden Turner is a British actor who happens to be living and working in the US. One could never confuse the two! Aiden Turner has worked on American soap operas and was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Aidan Turner has wonderfully brought Captain Poldark back to life. I cannot wait to see Season 2.
