Welcome to an unofficial website, dedicated since 2008, 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. Currently on cinema screens in UK and Europe in Kill Your Friends, Tom can also be 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. Other recent television roles include BBC2 comedy Inside No 9 'The 12 Days of Christine' as Adam, and 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. Parker-Hall in Kill Your Friends, Romeo in St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold, and Freddie Butler in Happy Ever Afters are some 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 premiered on August 5th at the 2015 Fantasy Film Fest in Berlin, and was released November 6th 2015 in UK. Tom took dual roles of producer as well as lead actor for the third (and now sadly) final season of Da Vinci's Demons, currently airing worldwide. Tom recently shot short film The Shadow Hours in LA, then feature films Pushing Dead and Modern Life Is Rubbish, in San Francisco and London respectively. He is started filming Starfish in Rutland, UK, on 20th November 2015. Further details of Tom's career can be found elsewhere on the site.

Starfish: shooting scheduled to last 1 month

Starfish writer and director, Bill Clark, shared some filming details on Linkedin last month, as final pre-production on the film was underway, and they were looking for local cast and crew. He revealed that shooting is scheduled to last 1 month. 

The film shoots in and around Rutland for 1 month. We're looking to make contact with locally based crew, actors and extras who are interested in working on it.

A new article in the Stamford Mercury about the start of filming has been shared online. It features brief interviews with Tom and Joanne Froggatt, and longer interviews with Tom and Nic Ray. Read the article in full on the website.

Da Vinci's Demons: season 3 TV Choice interview

This week's TV Choice magazine in the UK has an interview with Tom, discussing season 3 and the legacy the show has left on him. Part of the interview is word for word exactly the same as recent interviews shared by MCM Buzz and SFX, which is strange. But I guess they could all have interviewed Tom at the same time, or accessed the same press resources. The full scan has been uploaded to the galleries. 

Waving goodbye to Leo will be a wrench, but the role has left its legacy on Tom. "I'm less lazy. When I wake up and realise all I've done is watch Sunday Brunch, I have a long hard look at myself!"

You may have missed the fanfare and excitement of the FOX UK promotion, as the season 2 DVD and Blu-ray were released on November 16th. Finally. Season 2 is available to download via iTunes UK and also Amazon Video.
