Aidan Turner has become the official patron of the drama society at Queen's University Belfast. The announcement, made on Queen's University Players  facebook page on 9 October, 2014, was followed the following day by a secret visit from Aidan himself.

The students said that Aidan was an 'absolute joy to chat to' and that he was 'over the moon to be invited'.

Aidan said, '"I'm delighted to be invited by QUP to become its patron. The significant role of university drama in the professional arts world is well established; but even if you don’t want to be the next Liam Neeson or Stephen Rea, there is no better place for students at Queens to express and develop their creativity than with the Players. I look forward to sampling some of the society’s defiance, madness and joy during the year."
