The heartthrob actor - who plays the title role in the BBC drama - has revealed he's planning on moving to New York to be with his actress girlfriend Sarah Greene, who relocated to the city last year.

Speaking to Woman magazine, the 31-year-old actor hunk said: "I'm thinking of moving to New York soon. That's the great thing, as an actor these days you can be anywhere because a lot of meetings are on Skype. It's not like 10 or 12 years ago when all the Irish actors were in London. Now you can be in a city for reasons other than your career."

This Stateside move could be a problem for producers of 'Poldark' - currently pulling in almost 9 million viewers an episode on Sunday nights - considering the popular show is filmed in locations across Britain, including Cornwall and Gloucestershire.

BBC executives are said to be keen to secure Aidan for another five years in the role.

It doesn't look like Olivier-nominated Sarah is moving back home any time soon either, having just been cast in Harvey Weinstein's currently untitled new movie alongside Bradley Cooper and Jamie Dornan.

Speaking about life in The Big Apple, Irish star Sarah previously said: "I've always wanted to live in New York, so I jumped at the chance. I just adore this city. You never want to leave, so fingers crossed I can stay. I'm going to try to get my green card and get that process going."
