Aidan Turner was never going to be single for long.

It looks like the Irish actor, who shot to worldwide prominence in BBC's Poldark, was serious when he said he'd never date an actress again.

The 32-year-old was pictured kissing a mystery woman who has been identified as Swedish marketing executive Tara Deradkshan.

And he has refused to say whether or not he is still single.

Tara, who works as marketing director with an online advertising agency in London, previously worked in the non-profit arena with the World Childhood Foundation USA

In exclusive pictures obtained by The Mirror, the pair weren't exactly hiding their romance as they stopped to for a kiss in Soho.

When asked by the paper whether or not he was in a relationship, he said: "I can't say that."

The half Swedish/Persian is brains as well as beauty as she can speak Swedish, English, Farsi and French.

Tara established a network for "you and badass" in cities around the globe.

The news comes just a week after Turner described dating an actress as "quite dull and taxing".

Turner said that relationships between actors can be clouded with industry talk and overshadow the "real things".

"If you're in my business and you find somebody who does exactly what you do and you're living with them, then you're in the business all the time. 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 told TV Week in the Irish Mail on Sunday.

"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?

"You're left with the epicentre, the crux of it, what your relationship really is. And I think that's what turns me on."

He previously dated Irish actress Sarah Greene for six years before their relationship ended last November.
