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.
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.
