A few images featuring Aidan Turner performing on stage have been added to the gallery. There are two from his 2005 run as Hercules in Yokohama Delegation, as well as two from 2007′s Cyrano. They’re pretty great quality, too. Enjoy!
I’ve added three HQ “Being Human” episode stills to the gallery that weren’t previously available. They’re from the first series. Additionally, I’ve revamped Aidan Turner Online’s career portion of the site, which now includes a list of stage productions Aidan’s been involved with and detailed information on his film and TV history. Specifically, there’s a comprehensive episode guide for “Being Human,” and I’ll be working on adding quotes in the coming days. Enjoy!
Total Film has a summer 2012 featurette on The Hobbit entitled “Meet the New Faces.” Among those faces is Aidan Turner’s, playing Kili in the upcoming two-part epic. There’s a very brief snippet where he talks about his character, revealing some great insight on what to expect — including a possible love interest? Check it out below:
Fans of BBC Three’s supernatural series “Being Human” will recognise 28-year-old Turner as dishy bloodsucker Mitchell. Any fears that he’s uglying up for his role in The Hobbit will be eased by news that he’s been tagged the “hot dwarf” in Jacko’s epic.
“I’m glad that you said that,” laughs the Irish actor. “Well, it’s not the worst thing I’ve been called.” Kili’s part has been expanded from the novel: as well as chasing treasue, he’s also pursuing female elf Tauriel [played by Evangeline Lilly].
But is he setting his sights too high? “I guess he knows nothing can ever happen,” he explains. “She’s about 20ft tall and he’s only two.”
The seventh production video from The Hobbit has been released! In this one, fans get a really great look at the studio where they’re filming both parts of the epic adventure film. Aidan shows up very briefly (with friend, Luke Evans), but mostly the video focuses on props, sets, and even dwarf doubles. There’s also more looks at the barrel scene. For fans of the original Lord of the Rings trilogy, you may want to watch until the very end: a special guest makes an appearance.
It has been announced that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will have its world premiere on November 28th in Wellington, New Zealand. The event will take place at the Embassy Theatre, though there’s no word yet on whether or not tickets will be available for the public. Here’s what Peter Jackson had to say about debuting the movie in NZ:
Wellington had become home for the films’ cast and crew over the past two years, Sir Peter Jackson said.
“I know I speak for a company of hobbits, dwarves, elves and orcs when I say that this city holds a special place in all our hearts.
“We cannot think of a more perfect way to send The Hobbit off into the world than to celebrate with a huge party here in Wellington, where the journey began.”
Apologies for the egregious downtime Aidan Turner Online has been facing lately. The server the site is hosted on has been experiencing some hiccups due to heavy traffic, but it’s being worked on. As a result, ATO has also lost a couple of things, including categories for news update. I’ll be correcting that as soon as possible, but entries older than today may be permanently marked as “uncategorized.” I’m really sorry about that, but I just don’t have the patience to re-add them on each post.
Additionally, the two contact forms on the site are not working (broken captcha), so please bear with me until that’s fixed. If you need to get in contact with me immediately, please visit ATO’s Facebook or message me on Twitter.
The photo gallery is also currently down. That should be up soon.
The first Hobbit production video of 2012 has finally been posted — and there’s good news: Aidan Turner is featured in it! Not much – as the primary focus is on the various locations used for shooting – but he does briefly chat on camera with umbrella in hand, talking about the weather alongside co-star, Dean O’Gorman (AKA Fili). He can also be seen in some wider action shots with the dwarves. Some screen caps have been added to the gallery, and you can watch the video below:
Aidan Turner Online has a brand new and amazing layout, courtesy of Sweet Revelation! I had been waiting months to place an order, and I think it was well worth it as the final design looks even better than anticipated. I wish Aidan had a more recent photo shoot to work with, but I really think Flor brought new life into old pictures. Hopefully everyone else enjoys the look new as well. Remember to check out the matching gallery and Twitter layouts, too!
On January 24th, Aidan Turner showed up at DSTRKT London to support fellow star of The Hobbit, Luke Evans. They were photographed together at the launch party of Police Eyewear, a line of sunglasses with trademark blue lens.
Luke himself was being honored at the event, in celebration of his recent signing as the UK brand ambassador. Aidan’s previous “Being Human” co-star, Russell Tovey, was also in attendance. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any pictures of them together, but there is one of Aidan and Luke that has now been added to the gallery.
A new production video for The Hobbit has recently been released, this one focusing on the various locations of the film. It looks like a lot of work traveling all over New Zealand – from studios to specific landscapes – just to capture Middle Earth perfectly! Like all the other production videos, it’s really engaging and worth checking out if you’re at all interested in behind the scenes footage (regardless of whether the actors are featured). The dwarves are briefly featured in it, but there is no particular highlight on Aidan Turner this time around. Enjoy!
