Welcome

Welcome to an unofficial website, dedicated since 2008, to supporting the incredible talents of versatile British actor and producer Tom Riley, who has received wide critical acclaim, and awards recognition for his stage, television and film performances. Most recently seen on TV screens worldwide as Leonardo da Vinci in Starz  fantasy drama series 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. Tom was also seen on cinemas screens in UK and Europe in Kill Your Friends. Other recent television roles include BBC2 comedy Inside No 9 'The 12 Days of Christine' as Adam, and Robin Hood in Doctor Who 'Robot of Sherwood'

Tom is perhaps best known for his television roles: Leonardo da Vinci in Starz Da Vinci's Demons, 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.

The Shadow Hours: short trailer / video clip online

The cinematographer for The Shadow Hours has shared a short clip (possibly a trailer) for Kyle Higgins' film, shot last summer in Los Angeles. I'm sure you will agree, it looks beautiful. Hopefully we will have more news about The Shadow Hours soon. At present it is being submitted to various film festivals.
