Irish actor promises ‘massive arcs’ for Ross and Demelza when they return this autumn
Aidan Turner has dropped some tantalizing clues about what fans can expect from series two of historical drama Poldark.
The Irish actor, who plays Cornish mine owner Ross Poldark, says the second outing will be “huge” – and not just figuratively.
After the runaway success of series one, fans can look forward to two extra episodes this time, with ten installments to enjoy instead of last year’s eight.
Speaking at the MCM London Comic-Con, where he joined Russell Tovey on a Being Human reunion panel, Turner confirmed that the show would pick up exactly where series one left off – and the brooding landowner is not in a great place.
“Ross and Demelza have just lost their child, his company is down the pan, they’re broke and he’s been arrested. It looks like he’s going to prison,” Turner said. “It’s a cheery beginning.”
But it seems the latest outing won’t dwell on past miseries for long. Turner, whose shirtless scything was named TV moment of the year at the National Television Awards in January, added there are “massive arcs” in store for all of the main characters.
“There’s so much story in it,” he said.
A broadcast date has not yet been announced for series two, but it is expected to debut as part of the BBC’s autumn line-up.
The ‘Poldark’ star has overtaken Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba as the bookie’s favourite to take the role.
‘Poldark’ star Aidan Turner has become the bookie’s new hot favourite to take over the role of James Bond after a big weekend of betting. With big money coming in on Turner, bookies are predicting that the new 007 will be announced soon, even though Daniel Craig hasn’t confirmed he’s stepping down from the role.
Bookies Ladbrokes have reported that Turner is now the 1-2 favourite to be cast, taking over Tom Hiddleston who now has 2-1 odds, followed by Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Henry Cavill and Damian Lewis.
“Money talks, and it’s the Poldark man that punters want as their next Bond,” Ladbrokes spokesman Jessica Bridge told The Mirror. “Turner’s been shaking and stirring the betting for the last week and it’s not a huge surprise to see he’s been backed into odds-on.”
Rumors… but let’s cross fingers for them to become true :)
ish actor Aidan Turner is paving the path towards his meteoric rise. After appearing in the three-part fantasy saga The Hobbit as Kili, he went on to star as the lead actor in the hit BBC series Poldark and miniseries And Then There Were None. Now, Turner’s name is being attached to two major franchises: Doctor Who and James Bond.
There are rumors that the current Doctor, Peter Capaldi, will leave Doctor Who after Season 10. Thus, several names are being listed to become his potential successor. The most talked-about candidate so far is Irish hottie Aidan Turner.
However, the 32-year-old actor is declining the legendary role for a good reason. His former Being Human co-star and good friend Russell Tovey is also in the running to take over the Tardis once Capaldi steps out.
The Poldark star told Radio Times Tovey would “do a very good job” as the thirteenth Doctor.
