Pink Carnation Spotlight: Aidan Turner (Captain Alex Reid)

So now to Alex... the man successfully able to supplant Tommy... ah, I think he's a good match for Pen!

Name: Aidan Turner

Dream Character Casting for the Lauren Willig Miniseries: Captain Alex Reid

First Impression: As the oh so sexy second incarnation of Mitchell on Being Human... I'm pretty sure most people stateside didn't get to see the pilot with the Bryan Ferry/Marilyn Manson wanna be vamp. I have to say, for one of the first times ever, thank you for the recast!

Why they'd be the perfect actor for the Lauren Willig Miniseries: He has that harsh, yet extremely pretty exterior that I associate with Alex, but when he finally flashes that smile, oh man... Pen is a goner.

Lasting Impression: He made a good first impression!

What else you've seen them in: A very short cameo in The Tudors and a more substantial role on The Clinic. But it was Being Human that really caught people's attention and then he was unbelievably awesome in Desperate Romantics playing the stormy and fickle Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

Can't believe it's them: Look at this picture! He's so little.

Wish they hadn't: Ummm... I don't think I've regretted anything he's done... well, if he'd kill George's girlfriend on Being Human I'd be happy... so let's say, if he doesn't kill her that's something to regret.

Bio: Became the new Sci-fi poster boy very quickly... I think the fans of Buffy and Angel were desperate for another hunk the likes of Spike... plus, we were in pre-mourning for the lose of the 10th Doctor and Battlestar Galactica. It's best to be prepared.


He is so very sexy, I would watch him on anything! I hope Being Human comes back soon. I so miss Mitchell.

Just started tonight in the UK, so I'm guessing sometime this summer on BBC America... of course there is youtube :)
