Former "All My Children" star Aiden Turner was the third celebrity to be eliminated on this season's "Dancing With the Stars." He won't be getting the winner's trophy for his dancing, but with hundreds of hours of rehearsal, he does get some satisfaction.

"Really, anything you put your mind to, you can really achieve something great. And nothing great is achieved without hard work," said Turner.

Aiden worked hard at this and made a lot of new friends along the way.

"Everyone, everyone he meets adores him," said Turner's dance partner, Edyta Sliwinska. "I don't think I know any person that would not and, you know, I'm the same way. I'm just in love with this guy."

"Aiden and I got really close. He's a great guy," said Jake Pavelka. "He's going to be a lifelong friend. And Aiden's not going anywhere in my life."

Turner's mom, Sheila, flew in from the UK to be with her son. When you hear what she has to say about her boy, you know he doesn't really need the trophy.

"Just so proud. Every time I saw him in magazines or on television or anywhere, I was just so overwhelmed, as I am now," said Sheila.

And now that Turner is done dancing, what's on his wish list?

"I'd really love to do prime time. I'd love to do comedy. I'd love to do an action movie, maybe play Bond," said Turner.
