Previous dance experience: None, but he might dance his way into our hearts!
Sporting good looks and a delicious British accent, Aiden Turner is destined to be the resident heart throb of DWTS Season 10. Aiden was born in Hertfordshire, England, and educated at St. Edmund's College. He attended culinary school to pursue his love of cooking and for two years he worked as a chef in Hertford. While doing so, he taught himself how to mix music, and shortly thereafter, he also began working at night as a DJ. (Cooking and music? Maybe dancing won't be a huge reach considering this stud's varied resume.)
Aiden then went on to follow his dream to travel all over the world, visiting Thailand, Malaysia, Bali, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and North America. He then studied acting at the Method Studio Covent Garden in London, which helped him land commercial and television castings.
Turner steamed up screens everywhere when he was cast for the role of Aidan Devane on ABC’s All My Children in 2002. After an eight year stint, he left the show to pursue other acting opportunities in film and television — including his new gig on DWTS. We're not exactly sure how his rumba is supposed to lead to bigger and better things for his career. But with his pretty face, we'll go with it!
