Early life

Turner was born at home in Clondalkin, a suburb town of Dublin, Ireland. The family moved later to Walkinstown. Turner attended secondary school at St Mac Dara's Community College in Templeogue before leaving to join his older brother at Firhouse Community College. Turner has stated: “I probably wasn’t a great student. I had a car when I was 17, so I used to just run out of school when I could, jump in the car and go play pool in Tallaght. I don’t know how I knew, but I convinced myself that my [final exam] results were never going to matter to me.”

After finishing secondary school, Turner briefly worked as an apprentice electrician, alongside his father. After he saw a notice up in Dublin’s Gaiety School of Acting, and having become interested in acting while working in a cinema, he applied. He graduated from the Gaiety School of Acting in 2004.
