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, who just finished filming BBC2 comedy Inside No 9, has been seen most recently on TV screens worldwide, in the lead role of Leonardo da Vinci, in Starz / BBC drama series Da Vinci's Demons - a role which won him a 2014 BAFTA Cymru best actor award, 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, 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 a guest role in series 2 of BBC 2 dark comedy Inside No 9 in January 2015, which will be broadcast later in the year. Further details of Tom's career can be found elsewhere on the site.

Da Vinci's Demons: season 3 post production news

Da Vinci's Demons season 3 writer and producer Amy Berg tweeted about post production on the new season, and shared this photo from Bear McCreary's studio, which includes a glimpse of Tom and Blake on screen.

Da Vinci's Demons: season 2 surpasses all expectations

While we still have no Da Vinci's Demons season 3 trailer, nor a season 3 air date, at least Da Vinci's Demons season 2 still generates some great international reviews, to keep fans going during this depressing, Da Vinci deficient downtime. If only we were Outlander fans - Starz are filling their downtime gap with lots of promos and videos! 

A new review for season 2 has been shared on this Dutch website - please excuse the translation, although they must have missed the part where Tom's Leonardo is the lead...

The enthusiasm continues, but increases exponentially. The second season of Da Vinci's Demons surpasses all expectations we had of the series and a second season in general. The narrative scale is not simply doubled, but increased and epic. We went on tour in season 1 to Transylvania, in season 2 we go to the end of the world and back. Florence remains central, but is nothing more than a chess piece, a pawn in the big picture. The emotional and rational development of all the main characters is phenomenal.

Da Vinci's Demons: 301 VFX finishing touches

Da Vinci's Demons VFX supervisor Tom Horton shared this photo on Instagram, of the VFX team putting the final touches to Da Vinci's Demons season 3 episode 1. 

A full trailer for season 3 was finally broadcast last Saturday night on Starz, prior to the Black Sails season 2 premiere. Sadly, it hasn't been shown since, as far as I can see. Worse than that, Starz are no longer showing any Da Vinci's Demons promos. No teasers, and  definitely no full trailer. They have only been showing Black Sails, Outlander and Power trails. 

So, for fans who couldn't get to any cons, and who missed the trailer last Saturday on Starz, we are no closer to seeing anything from Da Vinci's Demons season 3, and still have no idea of a broadcast date.
