The Hobbit Star Aidan Turner Foils Attempted Robbery of a Fan

Aidan Turner may be better known to fans these days for being Kili in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy but he's got a long line of past projects including the likes of Being Human which has earned him legions of fans around the world.

He was chatting to one such fan recently at the Odessa Film Festival when a thief nabbed her purse. Without a moments hesitation (we're speculating here) Turner ran after the bicycle mounted thief and managed to retrive the valuables. Though the dude who robbed it actually did get away. And it could have ended in a very different way.

Still, that fan has the best story to tell at parties for the rest of her life, and she even has an Aidan touched purse that she can treasure forever.

Turner was in town for a massive 90 minute Q&A on his career and projects. There's a video here if you'd like to give it a watch, though the sound is generally quite bad.

Aidan Turner will next star in The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies in December 2014 and also plays the lead in the new Poldark TV series, due out in 2015.
