Irish actor Aidan Turner is in the running to be the next James Bond


Irish native Aidan Turner is reportedly in talks to land the coveted role of James Bond in the next series of the popular spy films. 

The role is currently manned by English actor Daniel Craig who is believed to have left the role after being at the helm of four movies. 

The 32-year-old Dublin man became a bona fide heartthrob after his role as Ross Poldark in the hit BBC reboot show and it seems that this feat has not gone unnoticed. 

"Aidan has held preliminary talks with Bond producers and being in LA will give him a further chance to discuss the role," a source has told the Sun. 

Karen Thrussell, a producer for Poldark, also had some cryptic things to say about the actor's chances of landing the role. 

"I am sure it has nothing to do with James Bond, but we shall see."

Yeah Karen, that has only convinced us that he is in the running for the notorious part. 

Aidan recently took home the Television Impact  gong at the National Television Awards for his role in Poldark. 

If he lands the role, he will be the second Irish man to fill Bond's big shoes after Pierce Brosnan.
