He is the latest object of female lust from Caithness to Cornwall — a heartbroken hero who is all brooding desire and smouldering good looks.
And Aidan Turner, the new Ross Poldark, certainly has plenty of tumultuous romantic experiences to draw on.
Perhaps, given his good looks, a rather swashbuckling love life is to be expected: gossips in Dublin insist that he was once — when between serious girlfriends — seen leaving a nightclub in the city with no fewer than three attentive females in tow.
He has had four serious romances to date, breaking the heart of one gorgeous actress and being thrown over by another.
His first girlfriend was actress India Whisker, a pretty blonde whom he met in 2004 while at drama school in Dublin.
She was followed by another actress, brunette Charlene McKenna. They lived together in Camden, North London, from 2007 to 2009.
She told an interviewer how happy they were together. But within a few weeks they split, and she was apparently devastated.
Turner then fell for Lenora Crichlow, his co-star in the TV series Being Human — from 2009 he played a vampire and she a ghost. Then in 2011, he and Lenora parted ways and he decided to quit the series while she stayed on. It seems that this was a source of great heartbreak for him.
He said this week: ‘I don’t know anyone on this planet who hasn’t had their heart broken. It’s happened to me. Love is love, it’s the purest and rawest thing we have in life.
The following year he started to date the Irish actress Sarah Greene. She was nominated for a Tony award for her performance on Broadway opposite Daniel Radcliffe in The Cripple of Inishmaan, and last year starred in the film Adam Jones with Bradley Cooper.
Their romance is still going strong after three years, but Turner admits that they are often separated by work. He spent 18 months making The Hobbit films in New Zealand early on in their liaison.
He explained of the periods of separation: ‘It’s all we’ve ever known [as a couple] and it makes for good times when we meet up again and maybe have a month straight when we’re both unemployed and watching movies every day. It’s fun to laze around and do normal things.’
