Poldark's Aidan Turner: "It was my idea to strip off for the Poldark poster!"
Whenever anyone mentions Poldark, the world has a slight panic. If you mention Poldark and a topless Aidan Turner, it pretty much shuts down.
So we kind of lost our cool a little when Aidan mentioned to Nick Grimshaw that it was in fact his idea to peel off his shirt for that iconic Poldark poster.
He told Grimmy: "There was a lot going on in that scene, a lot of story and it was only one take and two cameras. We didn't have much time to really process what was going on and I think it was my call to strip off."
"It didn't make sense to keep the shirt on and it was getting caught when I was rehearsing so I just peeled it off and went for it."
