He spent his first years in Clondalkin, then moved to Walkinstown with his family. He went to St Mac Dara’s Community College in Templeogue, but school was never in his focus and he often finished with poor results. He transferred from there to Firehouse Community College and after finishing helped his dad as an apprentice electrician, but once he came across a notice posted by the Gaiety School of Acting he sent in his application and was accepted, so finished his studies successfully in 2004.

Aidan started his acting career by auditioning for roles in plays, and made his debut on stage in “The Plough and the Stars” in 2005, at the Barbican Theatre in London, England. He then returned to Ireland and until 2008 honed his skills by appearing in plays held in various Dublin theaters. Some of his most successful roles include as Demetrius in the play “Titus Andronicus”, then as Pan in “The Crock of Gold”, and Christina in “Cyrano”, among others, all of which increased his net worth.

Aidan made his screen debut in a one-off appearance in the historical romantic drama series “The Tudors” in 2007, while in 2008 he starred in the thriller film “Alarm”, alongside Ruth Bradley and Owen Roe. The same year he started portraying Ruairí McGowan in the TV drama series “The Clinic”, and through the next year appeared in 18 episodes of the acclaimed TV series, which also contributed to his net worth. In 2009, Aidan was chosen for the part of Mitchell in the TV fantasy drama series “Being Human”, which propelled him to stardom, and added a considerable amount to his net worth. He made a big step forward by obtaining the role of Kili in the first installment of the action fantasy film “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in 2012, joining other stars including Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage among others. He repeated his role in the sequels “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” (2013), and “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies” in 2014, which added a substantial amount to his net worth, thanks partly to franchise’s box office success. He also won an Empire Award in the category Best Male Newcomer for the second part of the film.

Now an accomplished actor, it became easier for Aidan to obtain new roles, and in 2015 he started portraying Ross Poldark in the TV historical drama series “Poldark”, and so far has appeared in 35 episodes of the highly-acclaimed series, which has further increased his net worth. He also received a Breakthrough Award for his work on “Poldark”, by Broadcasting Press Guild Award, and an IFTA Award in the category Best Actor in a Lead Role – Drama, in 2016, and 2017 as well. Concurrently, in 2016 he starred in the romantic drama film “The Secret Scripture”, while most recently he worked on the comedy-drama film “Look Away”, which is completed and waiting to be released.

When it comes to his personal life, Aidan is in a relationship with Eleanor Tomlinson, an actress and his co-star in the TV series “Poldark. Previously, he was in a relationship with Nettie Wakefield, an artist from London, from early to mid- 2017, but the two spent little time together which eventually led to their breakup.

1Curly hair
1[On his hair in Poldark Series 1] My hair was that length. It's a lot shorter now so if we do go again for a second series I don't know what we're going to do. I'm going to have to start growing my hair really fast. No, that was all me. That was all Aidan Turner hair. I don't know whether I'm that proud of it but-I mean it looks a bit 'wiggy' sometimes-but I guarantee you it is all mine.
2[On filming Poldark in Cornwall] It was an amazing experience, we were so lucky. We spent about 10 weeks there and we were all over Cornwall. There was a week we had a private, family owned beach to ourselves, in St. Alstal. They just gave it to us for the week while we got the best of the British summer. It was just so idyllic, the entire shoot, everything was just so stunning. We were saying on set, when this goes out, people aren't going to believe we shot it in the UK, they'll think we went to Florence or the South of France or something, because it was actually just too beautiful. There wasn't a cloud in the sky. You don't have to leave the British mainland to find that sort of Paradise
3[On meeting and working with Robin Ellis, the original Ross Poldark in 1975] He plays a small role in the series. He plays Reverend Halse, a judge, a small but very important role. He's a great guy. I spent a few days with Robin and he's such a wonderful person, really lovely guy. There's one scene in particular where Ross stands up in court for Jim Carter, who's a close friend of his, a young lad whose been convicted actually of poaching. Robin Ellis is looking down his glasses at the end of his nose at me with a judge's cape and wig on and I remember there's one scene where I kind of lose it with him and I kind of call him out on what he's doing and he's unfair and he doesn't know what he's talking about and he's got to change his ways and blah, blah, blah and I march out of the court room. I remember walking back in after that first take and I was kind of a bit nervous because I'm screaming at Robin Ellis. When I walked back in he just lowered his glasses and winked at me and gave me a little thumbs up. I thought, "God, I'm getting the thumbs up from the original Poldark. This is amazing." That kind of helped me a lot.
4[Talking about Being Human] That's the life of an actor, you get so close to people for these kind of little snapshots in your life and these small moments and then they just sort of disappear and you move on to the next one and all you have is the memories, thank God. But no, "Being Human" is something I'm very proud of and I'm happy to have done.
5[Talking about Poldark] There's probably five or six series in it if we go that far, if it stays good and people continue to watch it. In between, the desire to play different characters is obviously there.
6[On Eleanor Tomlinson, his co-star in Poldark] She's amazing. She's great. She's so cool. She's just really laid-back, really gorgeous. Just so much fun. We had a lot of fun on set. I think we're quite similar in our natures. We're kind of, I don't know, we have similar sort of attributes I guess that work really well together. It helps a lot because ... if we didn't get on I think the audience might see it, so thankfully we're good friends.
7[Remembering Warren Clarke] There's a day I remember very well-of course Warren Clarke [Charles Poldark, Ross's uncle] passed very soon before the show ends-and there's a scene I remember where we're both sitting on the horse. I had food poisoning that day. And I remember Warren felt so sorry for me, but he just kept cracking jokes all day and doing impersonations of [beloved British comedian] Tommy Cooper and I couldn't help but laugh the whole way through. He knew exactly what would make me feel better. And there's a sense of sadness when I think about that day, as well, and that scene for obvious reasons. It was a really special few months, making Poldark.
8I'm not an extravagant person. You don't get a chance to spend money when you're working on a TV show
9On Poldark Series/Season 1 "When you're galloping across the moors on your horse you don't feel like one day there's going to be seven million people watching. I had no idea it was going to be received quite so well. I knew we had done a great show and I was proud of it, but I didn't know it would reach the mark that it did. So we're delighted."
10To make a career as an Irish actor, generally it's the case that you move to London. When you make that move, you do tend to stand out.
11I don't take myself that seriously. That's not to say I don't care about what I do, but I realize I'm in a very privileged position, and it comes with the territory. It's not bad stuff. If women want to go, "Phwoar, look at Poldark, he's gorgeous and handsome, I'd love to take him home," well why should I feel offended?
12I tend to not read... well, that's my party line anyway, that I don't read press. But it's hard because anywhere you go, you walk into a newsagent or a supermarket and you see that scything shot, with my top off. So that's weird. But nothing else has changed. There's a bit of activity with work, there's more scripts coming in and for the first time ever I feel like I'm in a real position of choice. I live in Dublin, where I don't get hassled, which is really nice. It changes slightly in London, but in Dublin I slip under the radar.
13In 'The Hobbit,' there were British, Irish, Australian and New Zealand actors, and Peter Jackson was adamant that we would all sound like we were from Britain somewhere.
14Will McGregor, one of the directors on Poldark, sends me things, and he said, "You have to know this is happening - your hair has its own Twitter account." That's outrageous. If I was an avid social media person, it would freak me out quite a bit.
15[on what films he likes] Spielberg as a kid but when I got a bit older there were loads more - the Danny Boyle movies, the Irish guys Jim Sheridan and Neil Jordan. My dad had a small part in Michael Collins, driving a vintage car.
16I was really into films when I was younger but I feel like a bit of a phony sometimes - I started acting because I didn't know what else to do. I filled in all these university application forms and honestly didn't want to do any of the courses. I spontaneously signed up to a part-time acting class at the same time. Then I did a full-time course, then went to drama school. When I started there I realized it's what I wanted to do. Being around committed people was very inspiring.
