The Telegraph shared a brief interview with Tom at the Bafta rising stars party, held at the Savoy in London.
When one thinks of Leonardo Da Vinci, rippling muscles are not the first thing that spring to mind.
Still, Tom Riley, 30, who is to play the Renaissance painter in a BBC drama called Da Vinci’s Demons, is putting himself through a gruelling fitness regime. He tells me at an Esquire party at the Savoy: “It will be a bit like the Robert Downey Jr version of Sherlock Holmes. So that’s why I’m expected to be in really good shape.”
The Genesis Foundation posted about Tom's brilliant casting news on their website, and shared a photo of him.
