Soap Opera News had the pleasure of chatting it up with All My Children alum and star of OWN’s If Loving You Is Wrong, Aiden Turner! Join us below as the actor talks about his career journey, new projects, and about that rumor of him joining General Hospital!

“It’s funny. I’ve always loved movies. I just found the whole industry really exciting,” Turner told us. Though, while the interest in acting was always there his first choice of career was that of one in the culinary arts. While training to become a chef in culinary school he found himself working as a salad chef for the actors at famed Pinewood Studios in London. While there he recalled being excited by the artistic atmosphere. Even though he would continue to cook and travel around the world for some time he just couldn’t stop thinking about his time working at the studio. 


Then while he was working as a bartender in Australia serendipity stepped in as he was introduced to a modeling agency where he began doing campaigns and commercial work. “I thought this is great. This is so much more interesting than sweating behind a counter or cooking over a stove,” Turner said. He would eventually turn away from his culinary journey to chase a new dream with acting full-time.


After working on some smaller projects in London he decided to move to New York for six months to give his career a shot. “My first audition was for All My Children and I didn’t get it. I was quite disappointed. I had worked really hard on my lines and got to be on set to test with the actors. Then a couple of weeks went by and I heard from my agent that they were thinking about writing a role for me. I ended up working there for eight years.”


“I loved my experience working on All My Children. It really made me happy. It was really tough work though. I realized the art of learning lines and how important it is to be prepared as an actor. I always had a script in my hand working on my lines,” the actor recalled. “The cast was great and accommodating when I first started and all the way through my time there. I just enjoyed the camaraderie and hard work. We were like a family.”

While it’s always hard to pick one standout moment across your career, a defining memory for Aiden was being nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2003. He also loved working with his AMC castmate Eva LaRue. “She is such a lovely person. I really enjoyed it when the show decided to take us to the Bahamas. That was a great bonus.”


Since leaving the ABC soap, Aiden has worked on several incredible projects. Most notably starring as Brad Montgomery on Tyler Perry’s If Loving You Is Wrong. Sadly, the beloved series ended this year. “It was a great series and I loved working with the cast, crew, and Tyler Perry, of course. The show had a really great run. It’s a shame really to have it come to an end. The story hasn’t wrapped up in the final season. You never know if it would ever come back. They were another family. We worked together for five seasons and really got to know each other well.”

“I hope [the fans] remember all of the drama and I hope they take from it...especially now that we need to love each other. We need to respect each other and not do things behind each other’s backs. That they learn drama and chaos is not the way to go,” he shared with us.


With the series’ end and Turner looking back so fondly on his time in daytime, we had to ask him about the recent rumor that he was joining the cast of General Hospital. “I haven’t heard that rumor but it’s pretty cool to hear! I love the ABC family and Finola Hughes, who is still working on the show. I’d be open to it if they were to reach out. I’m not afraid of hard work and, of course, I know the genre very well. You never know.”


While his return to daytime is up in the air, he certainly hasn’t stopped working. The actor has a new movie, Charlie’s Christmas Wish coming out in November. He also shared that he is auditioning for some exciting projects as well as awaiting the production start for an independent horror film, Hunting Souls. Turner revealed that he is especially thrilled for the film because he is working with Diego Silva Acevedo, who is making his directorial debut. 


“I just want to be a great husband and dad. At the same time, I hope once the world becomes a better place I can continue to work and support my family,” he acknowledged. “I just want to be a good role model for my children.”

Thank you, Aiden, for a lovely interview!
