Welcome

Welcome to a website, dedicated since 2008 to supporting the incredible talents of Tom Riley, the versatile British actor and producer, currently dark comedy Ghost Light in Massachusetts. Tom has most recently been seen worldwide as Claude Sabine in Amazon Prime's series The Collection, on BBC2 and iPlayer as Charlie in Sam Bain's Ill Behaviour, 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 filmed Ill Behaviour in Bristol, a three part comedy drama written by Sam Bain for the BBC, aired on BBC iPlayer and on BBC2 July - August 2017, and will broadcast in the US on Showtime as 6 episodes from November 13th 2017. Feature film Modern Life Is Rubbish will be released in 2018. Further details of Tom's career can be found elsewhere on the site. This website has long been approved by Tom, but is unofficial. 

Ill Behaviour: wildly imaginative comedy starts 10.30pm tonight on Showtime!

Tom Riley fans in the US currently have quite a treat on their TV screens. Sunday nights on Masterpiece PBS offer Tom as Claude Sabine in The Collection, while Ill Behaviour, with Tom as Charlie, begins broadcast on Showtime at 10.30pm tonight. From dark period drama to modern day dark comedy. Vastly different genres, styles and characters, and whilst somehow making it all look effortless, Tom shows us in both just how great his acting range is. So much to enjoy. 

Ill Behaviour: Perfect for anyone with a taste for twisted humour

Chris Geere shared the above graphic on Twitter to remind us not to miss Ill Behaviour (with Tom Riley fantastic as Charlie), on Showtime tomorrow night. But dont just take my word for it, Ill Behaviour continues to be recommended by the online press. The Washington Post has Ill Behaviour in its weekly highlights, and Glamour US included the show in its list of TV shows and movies not to be missed this week. 

Monday, November 13 Ill Behaviour:

This popular BBC show is finally available to American audiences. It centers on a group of people who try to reason with their friend (Chris Geere) when he decides to stop undergoing chemotherapy treatments in favor of more unconventional cancer-killing methods. Lizzy Caplan also stars. 10:30 P.M. ET on Showtime

Ill Behaviour: more hilarious (and chaotically British) than it sounds!

A few more preview articles and interviews have appeared online for Showtime's broadcast of Ill Behaviour - begins 10:30pm Monday 13th November. Most are very positive, especially about the cast. It seems that US critics are reacting to the controversial scenes barely mentioned by British reviewers (which I surprised me at the time), especially in light of current news topics. One reviewer didn't believe that some cancer patients refuse chemotherapy, but it happens. Speak to any oncologist, they have very frustrating and heartbreaking tales to tell. 

The cast is universally good-to-great. Geere is very much in “You’re the Worst” mode here, playing an entitled selfish asshole, and like in that show, here he gets a few moments to show off his actual acting ability (the series’ final shot, in particular, is kind of stunning). Caplan, as I said, is having the time of her life here. The Playlist

Ill Behaviour: a surprising comedy win!

Showtime has shared a new preview video for episode 1, in advance of Ill Behaviour's broadcast next Monday, 13th November. In addition, a couple of great articles have been shared online; My San Antonio also sharing some new episode stills, including the gorgeous one above of Tom Riley and Chrissy Chong.
