Aidan Turner is a popular Irish actor known for his portrayal of Kili in ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy. He started his acting career in theatre with significant roles in the stage plays produced mostly by The Abbey, Ireland’s national theatre. One of his first appearances as an actor was in 2005 with Barbican Theatre’s stage play ‘The Plough and the Stars’ portraying the role of Corp. Stoddard. His transition into television came through in 2007 when he played Bedoli in the first episode of ‘The Tudors’, though he was not credited for the role. However, this helped him bag the lead role of Ruairí McGowan in the 2008-2009 series ‘The Clinic’. Turner’s tryst with the movie world started in 2007 with the short films ‘The Sound of People’ and ‘Matterhorn’. His big break came through in 2015 when he signed BBC’s adaptation of Winston Graham’s ‘The Poldark Novels’ to play Ross Poldark. For this role, he won the Radio Times Champion Award in the Drama Champion category for three consecutive years in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Over the years, Turner has garnered a reputation for predominantly portraying supernatural beings. In 2016, he was voted the ‘Sexiest Man in the World’ by UK Glamour magazine.
