    Being a fan of being Human, I was very upset when Aidan Turner left the cast. I’m very excited, that he will be a part of The Mortal Instruments cast. Aidan was a scary and sexy Vampire in being Human, I loved his character. I can’t wait to see him as Luke and a Werewolf. I love the character Luke, and I’m sure that Aidan will bring him to life.
