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. Other notable television appearances include Poirot: Appointment With Death as Raymond Boynton, and Lewis: And The Moonbeams Kiss The Sea as Philip Horton.

Parker-Hall in Kill Your Friends, Romeo in St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold, and Freddie Butler in Happy Ever Afters are some of Tom's most recent film roles.

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.

Feature film Kill Your Friends was released on November 6th 2015 in UK. Tom took dual roles of producer as well as lead actor for the third (and now sadly) final season of Da Vinci's Demons, recently broadcast  worldwide. Tom shot short film The Shadow Hours in LA, then feature films Pushing Dead and Modern Life Is Rubbish, in San Francisco and London respectively. He then filmed Starfish in Rutland, UK, from 20th November until 18th December 2015. Tom is currently filming TV series The Collection, by Oliver Goldstick. Further details of Tom's career can be found elsewhere on the site.

Prague Opera Ball video

It seems that Tom may have had to 'sing for his supper' tonight. A couple of photos online show him doing some kind of reading, and the video below has him bell ringing, sort of. I think. Maybe more will be revealed online tomorrow. The live broadcast managed to avoid showing us much of Tom, which was frustrating.

Prague Opera Ball special guests

According to various Czech online news sites (who shared this above photo of Tom), and the Prague Opera Facebook Page (Ples v Opere), Tom will be attending the Prague Opera Ball tonight as one of the special guests, along with Lizzy Caplan and architect Sir Terry Farrell. 

None of the news items about the event are in English, and Google translate doesn't work so well for the Czech lanuage, so I know no details. It does seem that the event will be broadcast live on TN.cz from 8.30pm, tonight according to the article on this site.

Keep an eye on this site - it may start showing footage of the ball.
