Vampire Legends: Aidan Turner and Sam Witwer (Countdown to Halloween)

Aidan Turner

A vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost rent a house together. It’s not the beginning of a corny joke; it’s the premise of the television series Being Human, which aired in Britain beginning in 2008. The vampire, John Mitchell, was portrayed by Aidan Turner for the first three seasons. The character was over one hundred years old, but appeared to be in his twenties by human reasoning.

Sam Witwer

In 2011, a North American version of Being Human began airing on SyFy in the USA and on Space in Canada. The role of the vampire in this version, renamed Aidan Waite, was Sam Witwer, who previously appeared on Smallville as Davis Bloome (an interpretation of Doomsday). Incidentally, Sam Huntington, who plays the werewolf character, also has a Superman connection; he played Jimmy Olsen in 2006’s Superman Returns.
