You’ll never guess what career Aidan Turner nearly chose instead of acting!

Who knew he had this hidden talent?

What an honour!
Things could have gone in a very different direction for Aidan…

It appears there was a time that acting was a second option for Aidan Turner, as dancing was his original big dream!

The actor is best known for his role as heartthrob Ross Poldark in Poldark but apparently if he had the money he would have pursued a career in dancing instead.

The 33-year-old’s old dancing coach revealed that he was a lovely child with an undeniable talent for dance.

“He came to me when he was about 15 and he would have had experience,” He told the Irish Mirror.

“He would have been moving into the adult section which starts at about 16. Personality wise you couldn’t meet a nicer kid.  Next year I will have been teaching for 40 years and thousands of people would have passed through and Aidan always stood out to me as a pleasant, mannerly child.

“I would have taught him what would have been called Latin American and Ballroom dancing but is now known as dancesport. He was a good dancer and eventually came third in the Irish National Championships in the adult section.”
