Twitter Q&A May 2017

Yesterday afternoon, for the first time in a couple of years, Tom had a spontaneous Twitter Q&A for fans. Lots of lucky fans who were online had their questions answered. For those not so lucky fans like me who were working, and not around for the 20 minutes Tom was available, or who are not on Twitter, I storified most of the questions and Tom's responses.

Keep everything crossed that those of us who didn't get to ask Tom our questions yesterday will be online if he ever does another one. 

Starfish: new behind the scenes video and interview with Tom

To promote the DVD and digital release of Starfish tomorrow in the UK, a new still of Tom as Tom Ray has been shared on Facebook, along with a new behind the scenes video. It appears to be the same behind the scenes glimpses shown at October's special screening, and interview with Tom from the premiere.

Starfish: Tom Riley interview to promote DVD release

An audio snippet from one of Tom's interviews at the Starfish premiere last October has been uploaded to Sound Cloud, as part of the promotion for the UK DVD release on Monday 24th April 2017.

In addition, a video interview with Joanne Froggatt and Bill Clark shared on Facebook, also has a very brief glimpse of Tom behind the scenes while filming Starfish in 2015. It isn't clear whether the official Starfish social media team will share the rest of the behind the scenes footage shown at the special screenings last year.

Listen to the audio clip and watch the video embedded below. Pre-order the Starfish DVD now from Amazon UK. 

The Collection: bewitching new drama boasts an impressive ensemble cast

Decider has posted a third part from their interview with Tom, chatting about The Collection, now available to stream on Amazon Prime USA. Read it in full here. Tom provides more background to his character's relationship with Nina in the series (video clip showing their bond is at the bottom of this post). 

Riley told us, “The stuff with Claude, they’ve got such a weird, close sort of messed up relationship of un-reciprocated love. Unrequited love on her part. He does love her but as a friend and he’s unable to give her what she needs. Yet he kind of wants to and they have a weird sexual chemistry despite his sexuality. That for me is the most complex and interesting relationship in the show and working with Jenna was just a ball. She’s the most French person I’ve ever met in my life.”
