Is Aidan Turner the next James Bond?
Poldark actor Aidan Turner is in talks to star as James Bond, according to reports. Turner, 32, flew out to Los Angeles to meet with film bosses about succeeding Daniel Craig, it has been reported. “Aidan has held preliminary talks with Bond producers and being in LA will give him a further chance to discuss the role,” a source told the publication.

Turner, 32, flew out to Los Angeles to meet with film bosses about succeeding Daniel Craig, it has been reported.

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

Poldark producer Karen Thrussell acknowledged his trip to Los Angeles and teased Bond talks. On picking up Turner’s Breakthrough Award at the Broadcasting Press Guild awards in London, she told the publication: “I am sure it is nothing to do with James Bond, but we will see.”

Aidan won the Broadcasting Press Guild Breakthrough Award! :D He was not present at the ceremony, so he gave his speech in a video.  The video has not been released (yet!) but they have shown us this screencap, which I edited to see Aidan better ;)
