Aidan Turner's quotes

  • [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.
  • Will 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.
  • In '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.
  • To 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.
  • I'm not an extravagant person. You don't get a chance to spend money when you're working on a TV show
  • [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.
  • Theatre is always a good balance, It gets me into a good zone, and I enjoy it. I'm weighing up options
  • As an actor, to explore the inner workings of this great artist was a very exciting and humbling experience and I feel so fortunate to have worked with such a great team in Rome to make this series happen.
