Welcome to an unofficial website, dedicated since 2008 to supporting the incredible talents of Tom Riley, the versatile British actor and producer. Tom can currently be seen as Claude Sabine in Amazon Prime's new series The Collection, and on cinema screens in UK from October 28th, as Tom Ray in Starfish. 

Tom Riley has received wide critical acclaim, and awards recognition for his stage, television and film performances. He is perhaps best known for his leading television roles: Leonardo da Vinci in three seasons of Starz Da Vinci's Demons - a role which won Tom the BAFTA Cymru best actor award, and a Cablefax Programme Awards honourable mention as best actor in 2014, Robin Hood in Doctor Who Robot of Sherwood, Laurence Shepherd in two series of ITV's Monroe, Gavin Sorensen in ITV's Bouquet Of Barbed Wire, and 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.

Tom Ray in Starfish, Mike in Pushing Dead, Parker-Hall in Kill Your Friends, are just some of Tom's most recent film roles. Earlier lead film roles include Freddie in Happy Ever Afters, Joe in I Want Candy and David in A Few Days in September

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.

Tom shot short film The Shadow Hours in LA summer 2015, followed by three indie feature films back to back: Pushing Dead in San Francisco, Modern Life Is Rubbish in London, and Starfish in Rutland, until December 2015. Tom finished shooting TV series The Collection by Oliver Goldstick, in May 2016 - the show started weekly broadcast on Amazon Prime from September 2nd 2016. He wrapped filming the lead role in Dark Heart, a 2 hour pilot for ITV Encore on 16th July 2016, to be broadcast later in 2016. Starfish is released in the UK on October 28th 2016. Further details of Tom's career can be found elsewhere on the site.

Dark Heart: a diverting tale with good lead characters

Another new photo of Tom as DI Wagstaffe in ITV Encore's Dark Heart has been shared on this website, along with a detailed synopsis and review / preview. If the first two promo photos we have seen are any indication, the show should look amazing, and will be a treat for Tom fans. The idea that it is designed to return is very positive! Also, coming through the news feeds below, it seems that Dark Heart will broadcast at 9pm on November 9th.

Twisting two-hour tale of revenge murders that seems designed to launch a new cop series ★★★ ITV Encore, week of 5 November (day to be announced)

THE START is grisly, featuring the kind of slow murder that London probably hasn’t seen since the Middle Ages. It’s the first of a series of horror killings, all featuring suspected paedophiles as the victims. However, if you can get past the grim murder spree, Dark Hart is a diverting tale with good lead characters.

Detective Inspector William Wagstaffe (Tom Riley), is the focus. He is haunted by the murder of his parents during a family holiday in Spain when he was 16 years old. The killers are still at large and ‘Staffe’ is unable to let go until he finds them... 

The Collection: episode 8 'The Offer' now available on Amazon UK

The finale of Amazon UK series The Collection, episode 8 'The Offer' is now available to watch on Amazon Prime. A trailer for the new episode has a brief glimpse of Tom as Claude Sabine. There are no new stills of Tom's character to share, but for those interested, we do see Claude's cat-with-no-name in the final episode. 

Pushing Dead: funny yet penetrating, buoyed by strong supporting performances

Tom is mentioned in a brief review for Pushing Dead, ahead of its screening at this weekend's NewFest in New York.

"Pushing Dead" Tom E. Brown's funny yet penetrating, "Pushing Dead" lets us into the world of an HIV positive man (James Roday), who has been so for 22 years and, due to ridiculous circumstances, is being denied insurance coverage for the meds that keep him alive.

Buoyed by strong supporting performances (Tom Riley, Danny Glover, Khandi Alexander and fabulous Robin Weigert), "Pushing Dead" can be described as a black comedy but unfortunately, the health care portion is quite serious and real.

Tickets for NewFest and screening details for October 21st and 22nd can be found here. An up to date list of up coming festival screenings for Pushing Dead can be found here
