Women across the globe swooned over a ruggedlooking Aidan Turner in historical drama Poldark, but he's much more clean-cut in his new role.

The Clondalkin native has been snapped looking dapper while filming the new BBC One mini-series, And Then There Were None, in Cornwall.

The drama is based on Agatha Christie's mystery murder novel, which is the best-selling crime novel of all time.

It will be shown in three episodes later this year as part of Christie's 125th birthday.

Aidan's curly locks were replaced by a side-parted style and he wore a blue shirt, burgundy chinos and a pair of brown brogues while filming scenes on a beach.

The story is set on a rocky island off the coast of Devon as Europe teeters on the brink of World War Two.

The murder mystery plot sees 10 strangers on the remote island killed off one by one.

Aidan and his Australian co-star Maeve Dermody filmed some gripping scenes on a beach where she held him at gunpoint before he wrested the pistol from her.

But the Irish hunk's rugged looks will return, as Poldark has been recommissioned for a second season.

The 32-year-old was also nominated in the Best Actor category of the TV Choice Awards for the role.
