TV hunk Aidan Turner looks nothing like Poldark for new film role

Fifth and final season of Poldark airs later this year

We're used to seeing Aidan Turner looking windswept and gorgeous with a Cornish backdrop in BBC drama Poldark.

But his latest film role sees the actor completely transformed, as he plays the part of a murderous Nazi in The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot.

The new film - which came out in the US on Friday - stars Aidan, 35, as American soldier Calvin Barr, who infiltrates the Nazi regime to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

Fans of the gorgeous actor piled in on social media to express their shock at his new role, with one commenting: "OH MY GOD AIDEN TURNER IS IN IT.'

Another tweeted: "Just watched @HitlerBigfoot and found it to be quite beautiful in character study... Oh and Aidan Turner 😊😊 #SuchANeatFilm #Interesting."

OH MY GOD AIDEN TURNER IS IN IT.

A third sounded shocked, writing: "Aidan Turner plays Nazi killer!?"

The strange tale later sees 'Calvin' as an older man, played by veteran Sam Elliot, on a new mission to kill Big Foot, as he's carrying a disease which could wipe out humanity.

It might sound strange, but the movie, directed by Robert Krzykowski, has so far been a hit with audiences in the US. And let's face it, seeing Aidan's face is always welcome.

One reviewer wrote: "What a fantastic film! One of the best Sam Elliott performances that I’ve ever seen. Don’t let the strange title fool you — #TheManWhoKilledHitlerandThentheBigfoot is one incredible, heart-wrenching tale."

Another said: "The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot is monumental emotional filmmaking with a performance from Sam Elliott that dwarfs the Oscar contenders. They aren't even on the same playground as he is."

A third wrote: "THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT also comes out today & I love love loved it so very much. It’s not the movie you’re expecting which is why it rules."

But Aidan's also returning to UK tellies this year, for the fifth and final series of Poldark.

The official Instagram account for the BBC show shared a picture of Aidan with his co-star Eleanor Tomlinson on set.
