Aidan Turner, fr LOTR to Hobbit movie

Why Isn't Aidan Turner Getting the Attention Orlando Got back in LOTR? Why is the publicity of this stunning young man no where near that of what Orlando Bloom had back when he exploded from LOTR? He was everywhere, the teen magazines, the MTV awards, behind the scenes and whatnot. Aidan Turner should have been the Hobbit's version of Orlando, but nothing came of it. I know girls are liking him, I've seen the youtube videos put up of Kili, but did Peter Jackson or WB drop the ball with Turner?


Although The Hobbit hasn't had the same impact LOTR did when it came out. We're used to being in that world now and it's not new. Maybe it's because Aidan Turner is a dwarf in it too. Short arse men. The teenage girls can't have their romantic day dreams about a dwarf but I guess they could with an elf. Load of rubbish. Kili before Legolas!

Aidan Turner's going to have more staying power. He has a really great role coming up (Poldark) in which word is already coming back from press about his charismatic turn in the lead role. He's got a bright future ahead of him... Whereas Orlando's has always been a bit of a joke.

I'd argue that much of the Hobbit fandom has gone to Lee Pace - who already had a burgeoning legion of fans due to Pushing Daisies and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Also it's not PJ's job to rustle up publicity for his actors, but I'd imagine that WB did their part and perhaps chose not to push any one actor out of the very large ensemble. It seems they let the collective shine, rather than individuals. That's kinda always been the way the Middle Earth universe films have been publicized.

For all we know Aidan Turner will go on to make even bigger films than The Hobbit. There's nothing stopping him from being a big star and he's still young.

And obviously very good looking!

I agree with the person who said that much of the publicity is going to Lee Pace (Thranduil). But I'd also like to add that Aidan Turner probably isn't getting the same praise as Orlando in LOTR because Legolas is in the Hobbit also and - once again - he has stolen the limelight. I never got the big deal with Orlando Bloom...but I guess some chicks still fawn over him. I will admit that it was tough one between Kili and Thranduil for me ;D

You have to remember that Orlando was very young when LOTR first came out. Possibly still in his teens or at least early 20's. Aidan Turner, on the other hand, is in his 30's, probably making him 'too old' to market to the teen set. I have seen a lot of love for him from non-teen females. And I do remember when the first Hobbit movie came out there was a lot of talk about the "hot dwarf". But I saw a lot more comparisons between Kili and Aragorn than Kili and Legolas (despite the bow).

Not that good looking and the Hobbit basically was being repeated with the special effects.

Like you cant do the same magic tricks well thats what the Hobbit was about.

Jackson should have done the Hobbit first then the Lord of the rings

But if he hadn't left we wouldn't have had the gorgeous Damien Molony as Hal in BH, and Aidan wouldn't have made The Hobbit which probably helped with the casting of Poldark.

Aidan Turner is getting all kinds of attention as Poldark. He is one of the fan favorites from The Hobbit films even with the terribly sad ending. I cannot wait to see what he does next. Loved him in Being Human the UK version that is.
