The latest MIPTV news letter contains an interview with Tom and David. S. Goyer ahead of this evening's Da Vinci's Demons premiere in Cannes. Read it on Page 30.
British actor Tom Riley plays the young Leonardo.
“I knew the high-school version of who he was — this figure frozen in stasis in his 60s, incredibly wise, having lived a long life, having seen an incredible amount of things and created these beautiful works of art. And that image has lived on through generations,” Riley said. “What I didn’t know about was so much of the other stuff that he was involved in that wasn’t art-based.” He added: “If I was at school or if I was having to study that old man with a beard who painted the Mona Lisa, this would certainly give me more of an incentive to do so.”
The first photo of Tom at Cannes has been shared on Twitter.
