Newly single Aidan Turner spotted with actress ex-girlfriend Lenora

Irish actor Aidan Turner has apparently been leaning on ex-girlfriend Lenora Crichlow in the wake of his split with Sarah Greene.
The Poldark star (32) split with Irish actress Sarah in November after nearly five years together. He was spotted at dinner with Lenora in Los Angeles by eagle eyed fans dining at the same restaurant as the pair.
They first met on the set of BBC's Being Human in 2009 and dated for two years until splitting 2011 and he began dating Greene, who starred in Noble, later that year. Although the pair didn't look romantic, it's believed they rekindled their friendship since his break-up.
Turner is private about his personal relationships, but confirmed to the Telegraph he was single late last year, months after they were falsely rumoured to have been engaged.
"I like to keep my private life private for my own head," he explained.
"It’s important to me that people don’t know too much about me because I’m trying to play characters. Sometimes you see actors who are really good, but you have trouble separating that actor from the celebrity profile. I don’t want to be one of those guys. It helps that people don’t know a lot about me, I guess.
Meanwhile, he might be one of the hottest hunks on television but the Dubliner said he's "never felt" like a sex symbol. "Well, I still don't see myself as a sex symbol. Nothing has changed for me in that regard," he told the Daily Mail.
"There were parts of the show where people could relate to that idea I suppose, but I never felt like a sex symbol. I wasn't thinking 'Here's me being a sex symbol' when Poldark went into the sea for a swim."
