Welcome

Welcome to an unofficial website, dedicated since 2008 to supporting the incredible talents of versatile British actor and producer Tom Riley, who can soon be seen in Amazon Prime's new series The Collection, ITV Encore's 2 hour drama Dark Heart, and indie feature film 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 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, which will be 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. Further details of Tom's career can be found elsewhere on the site.

Many congratulations to Tom Riley and Lizzy Caplan on their engagement!

It is a policy of this website to never comment on Tom's private life, nor to acknowledge gossip or paparazzi photos. However, on this very special occasion, now that it has been confirmed, it seems appropriate to send Tom and Lizzy Caplan much love and best wishes for a wonderful, happiness filled future, on the fantastic news of their recent engagement.  

Despite Lizzy being photographed publicly on three occasions recently wearing her gorgeous engagement ring, notably at the premiere in New York of Now You See Me 2, with Tom in June 2016, none of the gossip magazines managed to spot it...sadly it took an invasion of their privacy yesterday, while they were shopping in Los Angeles, to get it noticed...

EOnline sought confirmation from Lizzy's reps, and posted the news along with a photo first shared on here.  They also included the paparazzi photo, so I won't link back. Search online for the original article.

According to the actress' rep, Tom Riley asked Lizzy Caplan to be his wife in May 2016 in New York City. The couple met in London where Caplan was filming Now You See Me 2, in January 2015.

The Shadow Hours: new IMDb page

With the premiere of The Shadow Hours next month at the 12th HollyShorts Festival in Los Angeles, the short film has been finally added to IMDb, and it is revealed that it is 19 minutes long. We still have no proper trailer for The Shadow Hours, and don't actually know the date which the film will be screened. So, although tickets are now on sale for the festival, fans particularly wanting to see The Shadow Hours will have to wait a little longer to buy them.

A Neo-Noir following twin brothers born with a mysterious condition: only one of them can be awake at a time. Posing as one person, each awake for only half of a day, they make a living as private investigators... until a budding romance threatens to ruin their lives.

For those who would like to be reminded of how wonderful the film looks, the film clip released a while back is embedded below.
