Welcome

Welcome to an unofficial website dedicated to supporting the incredible talents of versatile British actor Tom Riley, who has received wide critical acclaim for his stage, television and film performances. Tom was recently seen on TV screens worldwide, in the lead role of Leonardo da Vinci, in the Starz / BBC drama series Da Vinci's Demons

Tom is perhaps best known for his television roles - as Leonardo da Vinci in Starz Da Vinci's Demons, 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.

Official production for Da Vinci's Demons season 2 finished on 6th December 2013, and began broadcast on Starz from 22nd March 2014. Tom recently finished shooting feature film Kill Your Friends, and is currently filming an episode of the new series of Doctor Who. Further details of Tom's career can be found elsewhere on the site.

Da Vinci's Demons: 'Drink' clip from 206 'The Rope of the Dead'

Starz has shared a new clip 'Drink' from this coming Saturday's Da Vinci's Demons season 2 'The Rope of the Dead'. It is only viewable in the US at the moment, but will hopefully be uploaded to You Tube by Starz soon.

The clip shows Ima offering an ill looking Leonardo Ayahuasca. 

Da Vinci's Demons interview & Doctor Who photos

A few photos of Tom shooting episode 3 of the new Doctor Who series last week, which we haven't seen before, have been uploaded to Getty Images and Rex.

According to this site, we can perhaps look forward to a new interview with Tom appearing - hopefully online. The promo blurb below, however, isn't very acccurate.

Tom Riley's Italian Job

Working on hit TV show 'Da Vinci's Demons' is a dream come true for Tom Riley. Not only does the actor get to play iconic Renaissance artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci, he also gets to visit amazing locations around the world. The historical fantasy drama - now in its second season - offers a fictional account of Da Vinci during his turbulent youth in Florence, which was just one of the places Riley got to visit during the shoot. The crew also filmed in Venice and, perhaps less impressively, Swansea in Wales.
