(Best known in the US for being on All My Children for a few years)
Is NOT the same as this man:
Aidan Turner, who does the angsty, broody Vampire thing on Being Human
Because I hadn't noticed the spelling difference in the first name and was convinced that Aiden had gone slinking home after being generally hated by most of the fandom during his time on AMC and that his success on Being Human represented an awesome comeback.
So yeah, I'm an idiot.
(What's even more disturbing is that I already had the tag for this.)
