James Bond: ‘Poldark’ Star Aidan Turner Not Being That Famous Might Actually Get Him The Role?

James Bond rumors are not going to die down, and there is no denying the fact that there is a certain level of curiosity among fans as to who will become the next Bond. With Sam Mendes stating that the next Bond will be completely unexpected, it is quite obvious that the makers will remain true to their tradition and cast some unknown actor.

Given the fact that among the heavyweight frontrunners Aidan Turner is the most unknown actor, this could actually work in his favor. True to their tradition, the makers might just make an offer to him because his line of work is not yet as extensive as the other popular contenders.

Maybe him being an up and coming actor will end up making him one of the biggest movie stars in the world because of the franchise. Since Aidan only has “Poldark” and “And Then There Were None” as two of his most known works, he perfectly fits the bill as the next actor to take on the role.

Aside from this, he is young and will be able to portray the role for at least a decade. By the time he is done playing the role, fans would have the same opinion for him like they have for all the previous other Bonds. The Irish star also has quite an intense screen presence, which would make him a convincing Bond on screen.

One major reason why the makers probably choose to cast an unknown actor in the role is because they can mold the actor in the character properly. And as far as the actor is concerned, he is guaranteed with a career that will only soar higher during or after having played the role. Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan are some examples of the same who now enjoy the status of being globally recognized movie stars because of the same franchise.

With Aidan being cast in the role, his career will propel to new heights and the makers, too, will get a dedicated actor who has been winning hearts everywhere with his performance.

UnrealityTV reported that following Aidan’s popularity in North London and Essex, he is the brand new favorite to become the next James Bond. Both him and Tom Hiddleston have been hailed as the most likely contenders. And it remains to be seen, who finally gets to wield the Walther PPK.

WTOP in other news added that “Spectre” and “Skyfall” director Sam Mendes spoke about the next Bond. According to him, it will be completely unexpected as Barbara is the only one who chooses the next Bond. An unexpected choice is why the franchise has been successful till now.
