Welcome

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 online as Claude Sabine in Amazon Prime's new series The Collection, on cinema screens in UK as Tom Ray in Starfish, and on ITV Encore as DI Wagstaffe in Dark Heart. 

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 is currently filming Ill Behaviour, a three part comedy drama, written by Sam Bain for the BBC. Feature film Modern Life Is Rubbish will be released in 2017. Further details of Tom's career can be found elsewhere on the site.

Ill Behaviour: Tom 'started' filming with a full head of hair...

The show Tom is filming right now in Bristol, and has been doing so since October, has still not been announced by the BBC. So we have very few details and no new tit-bits to share, other than we know Ill Behaviour is a 3 part comedy drama, written by Sam Bain for BBC 2 / BBC iPlayer. 

We have no idea about Tom's character, nor indeed, about the storyline, though Tom recently shared a couple of photos on Instagram, possibly from the set of Ill Behaviour. In the first (above), he appears to have a full head of hair. In the second (embedded below), Tom has again embraced a radical hair choice - there was the long hair, blonde hair, moustache, and now almost bald. This certainly makes Ill Behaviour seem most intriguing, and is brave for the time of year! RIP Tom Riley hair porn for a while.

 

The Collection: new cast photos

As a number of French online news sources are reporting / confirming the broadcast of The Collection on France 3 from December 29th, new cast photos have been shared on this site. Well, the photo of Tom Riley as Claude Sabine is new for sure. 

I already posted the link on twitter last week, but The Collection is now available on BBC Player in Singapore and Hong Kong, and there are several new photos of Max Deacon as Billy (hi-res), but sadly none of Tom as Claude. 

The Collection: France Télévisions broadcast from December 29th 2016?

According to these French news sites here and here, it would seem that The Collection may be broadcast on France 3 from Thursday, December 29th 2016. France Télévisions have only said 'coming soon', so far. 

Oliver Goldstick tweeted about the show premiering on December 14th 2016, but this is not the actual broadcast date. It seems to be a premiere event, exclusive to Club France Télévisions members, and also to those who win tickets in current online competitions - here and here
