Born and raised in the small Irish suburb of Clondalkin, curly-headed Aidan Turner is best known for portraying tortured vampire Mitchell on the smash BBC series "Being Human."

After graduating from the Gaiety School of Acting in 2004--fellow alumni include American starlet Olivia Wilde--Turner performed in many plays throughout England and Ireland, including Tennessee Williams' one-act drama "Suddenly, Last Summer" and Shakespeare's tragedy "Titus Andronicus." He appeared on television for the first time in "In Cold Blood," a 2007 episode of Showtime's historical drama series "The Tudors," starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Henry Cavill. After popping up in a few short films and the panned paranoia thriller "Alarm," he portrayed receptionist and DJ Ruairí McGowan in the hit medical drama "The Clinic," a character that lasted two seasons. The year 2009 saw Turner appear in nearly every living room in Britain with his roles as Dante Gabriel Rossetti in the 19th century drama series "Desperate Romantics" and Mitchell in "Being Human." A mixture of witty humor and supernatural horror centering around a trio of spooky roommates--a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost--"Being Human" gained a massive audience upon its BBC America debut and inspired an American version of the show in 2011.
