Irish 29-year-old Aidan Turner will be familiar to many Brits as the vampire Mitchell in the BBC’s Being Human. However he’s currently getting a much bigger international following thanks to The Hobbit. He plays Kili, the dwarf brother of yesterday’s Crush Of The Day, Dean O’Gorman’s Fili.
The two brothers head off with Bilbo, Thorin and 10 others and head for the Lonely Mountain, where they meet the dragon Smaug and get into a truly fantastical adventure on the way (and indeed coming back again).
Turner has also been seen in the Irish TV series The Clinic and played famed painter and poet Dante Gabriel Rosetti in Desperate Romantics. And if you like him in The Hobbit, you’ll be able to see plenty more of him soon, not just in the concluding parts of Peter Jackson’s trilogy, but also next summer’s fantasy film, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
And of course, you can also get a good look at the hairy-chested hottie in our gallery below.
