Welcome

Welcome to an unofficial website dedicated to supporting the incredible talents of versatile British actor and producer Tom Riley, who has received wide critical acclaim, and awards recognition for his stage, television and film performances. Tom has been seen on TV screens worldwide, as Leonardo da Vinci in Starz / BBC drama series Da Vinci's Demons - a role which won him the 2014 BAFTA Cymru best actor award. He has most recently been seen on UK TV, in BBC2 comedy Inside No 9 'The 12 Days of Christine' as Adam, and as Robin Hood in Doctor Who 'Robot of Sherwood'

Tom is perhaps best known for his television roles - Leonardo da Vinci in Starz Da Vinci's Demons, as Robin Hood in Doctor Who Robot of Sherwood, as Laurence Shepherd in two series of ITV's Monroe, as Gavin Sorensen in ITV's Bouquet Of Barbed Wire, and as Mr Wickham in ITV's Lost In Austen. Other notable television appearances include Poirot: Appointment With Death as Raymond Boynton, and Lewis: And The Moonbeams Kiss The Sea as Philip Horton. Romeo in St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold, and Freddie Butler in Happy Ever Afters are just two of Tom's most recent film roles.

Nominated as Outstanding Featured Actor In A Play at the 2011 Drama Desk Awards for his role as Septimus Hodge in Arcadia on Broadway, Tom's other theatre credits include numerous productions at the Royal Court Theatre, and the Riverside Studios' 2010 world premiere of Hurts Given and Received by Howard Barker. For this he received outstanding reviews, and a nomination for best performance in the 2010 Off West End Theatre Awards. Tom was most recently seen on stage as Richard Kenton in the world premiere of the Stephen Poliakoff play My City at the Almeida Theatre in 2011.

Feature film Kill Your Friends finished shooting in April 2014, and will be released late in 2015. Da Vinci's Demons season 3 filmed in Wales from 23rd June until 17th December 2014 (and again March 2015), with Tom taking dual roles of producer as well as lead actor. Da Vinci's Demons will return to Starz sometime in 2015. Tom filmed his guest role in series 2 of BBC 2 dark comedy Inside No 9 in January 2015, which was broadcast on 2nd April 2015. Further details of Tom's career can be found elsewhere on the site.

Da Vinci's Demons: Best TV shows to stream online

New Da Vinci's Demons season 2 images have been shared by Far Far Away, including several of Tom as Leonardo. The show has also been included in Newsday's latest list of best shows to binge online (legally!).

"Da Vinci's Demons," Starz Play.

Hey, it wasn't as easy as it looks being one of the greatest geniuses in history who invented just about everything and painted "Mona Lisa" too. He had demons, after all. But Tom Riley as "D" still manages to make it all look fun.

 

Da Vinci's Demons: season 3 IMDb update

Someone has updated the Da Vinci's Demons IMDb page with a new premiere date for season 3. Friday 12th June.

There has been no news announcements from Starz, no trailer, and no promotion of any kind - with potentially only 8 weeks to go. Also, Power begins on Starz June 6th, and already has lots of promotion. We need to wait for official news, before getting excited. 

Da Vinci's Demons: new season 3 glimpse

Absolutely no news about Da Vinci's Demons season 3 yet, but Amy Berg was kind enough to share this screenshot from season 3 on Twitter last night. It has been 6 months since fans at NYCC got to see a season 3 trailer, and 4 months since Comic Con Portugal. The rest of us are still waiting. 

 

Also, it is the real Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci's birthday today. He was born on April 15th 1452. Happy 563rd birthday, Leonardo.
