|Aidan Turner as Kili in The Hobbit|
How impressive is this?
Aidan Turner has made The New York Times crossword!
The crossword on 23 February, 2017 contained the clue: Actor Turner of "The Hobbit" (56 Across). The answer, of course, is "Aidan". Aidan played the dwarf Kili in The Hobbit trilogy, prior to starring in Poldark.
Hilary Stillman, a Poldarked reader who regularly does The New York Times crossword, brought the puzzle to my attention saying, 'This is a big deal, as a public person has to have a certain level of recognition to be used as a clue. I've done the puzzles for a long time and this is the first time I've seen Aidan Turner recognised in this way.'
It's certainly the coolest crossword clue I've seen!
