Heartthrob Aidan Turner’s long-term girlfriend has issued a firm “hands off – he’s mine” warning to his legion of new fans.
The Irish star of BBC costume drama Poldark has set millions of hearts fluttering with his smouldering lead performance as Ross – a man torn between two women.
But in real life he is very much in love with his girlfriend of three years, Irish actress Sarah Greene.
And protective Sarah has sent a clear message to anyone with designs on her man – steer clear because he’s off the market.
A friend said: “Sarah will stand no nonsense from any woman who tries to get too close to Aidan. She will let them know very directly ‘hands off – he’s mine’.”
Sarah, 29, who divides her time between Dublin, London and New York, also fiercely guards her privacy and private life.
And she isn’t afraid of confronting anyone who is “rude enough” to invade their personal space.
She said: “My boyfriend was on the Tube and people started taking pictures of him asleep. It’s like, ‘Ask for a photo if you want a photo.’
"Everyone is paparazzi these days. I have a private life and I want that to be private. The odd time in New York you find people taking pictures of you, it’s really rude.”
Friends of the Cork star said: “Sarah is an interesting mix of small town Irish charm and fierce ambition.
"She has the drive to reach the very top, but she doesn’t like all the nonsense that goes with it.
“She has been dating Aidan for over three years and they are very close.
