The rumor mill has gone into overdrive - who is Aidan Turner dating? The Irish actor caused a stir when he stepped out publicly with actress Caitlin FitzGerald.

The Polodark star was previously in a long-term relationship with Irish thesp, Sarah Greene.

The Irish couple parted ways in the spring of 2017 after a five year romance. 

After their high profile split, Turner (34) seemed to swear off dating fellow actors.

"You go home, talk about casting directors, you talk about the press, you talk about the next job you're doing - it can become quite dull and taxing," he said.

"There's nothing like going out with somebody who doesn't even care what you're doing, let alone have anything to say about it. Because then it boils down to what the real things are, you know?"

However it seems his pact was short lived as the curly-haired star has gone public with his new relationship with US actress Caitlin FitzGerald.
Seeing as the Dublin-born actor was once deemed the sexiest man in the entire world - it's not surprising that females everywhere may be heartbroken to read about his latest romantic endeavor!
The 5'10" blonde beauty is a hit TV actress, famous for staring in the dramas Sweet bitter and Masters of Sex.
The 35-year-old is also notably the granddaughter of ex-CIA chief, Desmond FitzGerald, who tried to assassinate Fidel Castro in the 1960s.
How did Aidan Turner and Caitlin Fitzgerald meet?
According to the Daily Mail, the new couple may have gotten close while filming scenes in the upcoming fantasy film, "The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot".

Turner and FitzGerald respectively play an American soldier and his lover, whose romance is torn apart by a dangerous WWII mission.
