Welcome

Welcome to an unofficial website, dedicated since 2008 to supporting the incredible talents of Tom Riley, the versatile British actor and producer. Tom was most recently seen 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 recently finished 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.

The Collection: broadcast details for Korea

The Collection continues its round the world broadcast, and from 24th June will be shown in Korea on the KBS channel. A mini-site for The Collection has been shared by KBS, with more details about episode broadcast dates.

The Collection is currently being shown via DirectTV in most Latin American countries, and in Germany on RTL Passion. German fans can still grab free tickets for The Collection screening and Q&A at the Munich Film Festival on June 27th 2017.

Starfish: 2017 Galway Film Fleadh screening

It has been announced today that Starfish will make its Irish premiere at the 2017 Galway Film Fleadh, which will run from July 11th to 16th. Festival details will apparently be revealed on June 27th. 

UK film 'Starfish' will play at Galway after an impactful small release in the UK. The true story of what happened to Tom and Nic Ray, a couple whose love was tested to the limit when Tom became ill, apparently overnight, with sepsis.

A huge positive for the release of the film so far has been the way that audiences have been able to learn about an illness that affects around 9,000 per year in hospitals in Ireland, and 150,000 in the UK, with a tragically high level of avoidable deaths.

Tom and Nic Ray have been campaigning vigorously for sepsis awareness since the first release of the film and will be attending the Galway screening to support the film, hoping to continue to spread the word.

Modern Life Is Rubbish: Festival guests and discounted premiere tickets

Modern Life Is Rubbish premieres at the Edinburgh International Film Festival tomorrow night. EIFF have a special offer for tickets to the premiere, which they shared on Twitter. 

 

 

Guests attending the festival have also been announced, and sadly for Tom Riley fans, his name is not included.  There will be a Q&A following the premiere, but this will be featuring Ian Hart.
