The actor won himself legions of fans - including, let's be honest, many admirers of his physique - in the BBC’s ‘Poldark’ series, and now, it looks as though he could be getting suited and booted to play the super spy.
‘Poldark’ producer Karen Thrussell did little to quell the rumours at the recent Broadcasting Press Guild Awards, laughing and teasing that she was “sure it [Aidan’s LA trip] is nothing to do with James Bond, but we will see.”
Other actors believed to be in with a shot include Tom Hiddleston, who’s currently impressing fans in ‘The Night Manager’.
Viewers were left stunned by the most recent episode, which included an X-rated sex scene, featuring Tom (and his bottom) and Elizabeth Debicki.
While he's yet to make a formal statement on the matter, it's believed that Daniel Craig has decided not to return to the franchise.
