Aidan Turner Wins Breakthrough Award


Aidan Turner has won the Broadcasting Press Guild Breakthrough Award! The Breakthrough Award is for attaining a new level of success in 2015.  This is most certainly true of Aidan who has seen his popularity rocket since Poldark aired a year ago and whose performance in Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None met with critical acclaim.
Fellow Poldark co-star Heida Reed collected the award on Aidan's behalf at the Broadcasting Press Guild Award Ceremony at Drury Lane Theatre on 11 March, 2016. Aidan beat fellow contenders Gemma Chan Humans, Michaela Coel Chewing Gum and Sian Gibson Car Share:  a full list of winners is available here.

Those of us who have followed Aidan's career for years know only too well of the endless months with no word of him, whereas this last year has been positively bountiful in comparison, with Aidan working virtually non-stop on a variety of interesting projects including films like Look Away, The Secret Scripture and Loving Vincent, as well as filming  And Then There Were None and the second series of Poldark for TV.

We hope the increased interest in Aidan brings him many new opportunities in the coming years in film, TV and in the theatre too and wish him our sincerest congratulations.
