The actor may have reached his limit!

Poldark is back on our screens for Series 2 this Sunday. And many fans of the period drama will be hoping there’ll be a repeat of THAT scything scene this season.


But while viewers may love nothing more than gazing at Aidan’s Turner’s enviable six-pack, the actor seems to be getting a little weary of stripping off for scenes.

Talking to Woman magazine, Aidan said: “They were trying to make me take another dip in the sea this time, but it’s not in the books.

“It was in the books last time, but this time if it’s not in the books, I have a good fight not to do things.
“And I’m certainly fighting the cause to keep my clothes on for this one.”

And when it comes to the question of whether or not he’ll keep his clothes on, Aidan explained that it’s all about the circumstances.

He continued: “When I finished Poldark last time, I shot a movie where I very much kept my clothes on, so I wasn’t training.

“Then when I came back, I did the Agatha Christie gig [And Then There Were None] and there was a scene where I had to take my clothes off, so I started training again.

“It’s not that I’m obsessed, but if I feel it’s right for the character, I go for it.”

‘It’s not a stripper show!’


This is not the first time that Aidan has expressed his dismay at being ogled at on-screen. Speaking last year about his turn as a scyhther he said:

“I don’t know why the BBC are releasing photos of it. It’s a bit strange. It’s not a stripper show.”
