Don’t you just love it when you come across something new and exciting thanks to being a RA admirer.
Sometimes it’s by accident – like the discovery of the poet Simon Armitage.
This time, I decided to scope out the other Hobbit actors.
My first, and most obvious choice, was Aidan Turner.
He’s playing Kili, a dwarf from the House of Durin, and Thorin Oakenshield’s nephew.
Let’s just say, I didn’t really go for Mr Turner by accident.
He’s what you would describe as ‘easy on the eyes’, and if I’m honest, he’s right up my alley 🙂
(if you need a reminder of the last non RA hottie featured here, it was Jon Snow, from Game of Thrones…)
Yup, I definitely have a type… I don’t date it, though…
But, back to the wonderful Aidan Turner.
I decided to check out Being Human.
It’s a story of a vampire (Turner), a werewolf (a wonderful part for Russell Tovey) and a ghost, all living in one house in Bristol, and trying to live in the most ‘human’ manner they can.
Please note that I have seen the UK version. I know there’s a US one from 2011.
I have just finished season 1 and wild horses could keep me away from season 2.
All I know is that the cast changes after season 3, when Aidan leaves the show (perhaps to go on a quest to NZ).
Mr Turner plays a simply delicious vampire, who is trying to suppress his urges and do no harm to humans.
No small feat when you are sporting a sexy pair of fangs, and feeding on human blood (for which there is no substitute) is linked to sexual pleasure.
I’ll give this to Aidan Turner, he has the sexiest, most sincere smile I’ve seen on a man in a while.
He may not be everybody’s cup of tea (my sister says he’s a bit like an Italian gigolo), but that sexy accent proves he’s all Irish.
Have I mentioned I had a thing for men with an Irish accent?
