Aidan Turner fans halt filming of Poldark as they swarm the set


Aidan Turner fans have been slowing down filming of Poldark as they swarm to try and catch a glimpse of the Irish actor.

The shows set has been flocked with people trying to see the handsome Dubliner on location in Cornwall on the southwest coast of England.

The Hobbit star gained major popularity overnight when he went topless in the first season of the BBC show.

Simon Williams, manager of the Harbourside Inn in the village of Charlestown said that the amount of people watching and taking pictures on location has halted filming.

“There’s been a real buzz and it’s definitely helped trade having the filming take place here.

“Unfortunately a lot of people have been watching and taking pictures while filming and using flashes, which I know has halted filming,” he told the Irish Daily Star.

“When they shot here for the first season it wasn’t busy as people didn’t know who they were. But they do now as it’s so popular,” he added.

Filming for Poldark season two started earlier this month and will continue for several weeks before moving to other locations around the country.
