Twitter Q&A May 2017

  • Alt

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.

  • Alt

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.

The Collection: the complex role reveals Riley as an actor to watch

  • Alt

Three interviews with Tom in one day! What a treat! Elle shared their interview with Tom online, and included some kind words about his performance as Claude Sabine: "The complex role also reveals Riley as an actor to watch. He channels Claude's low moments with an intense gravity, just as he's able to unveil the character's more vulnerable side."

The Collection: Tom Riley explains about accents used by the international cast

  • Alt

As The Collection is released in its entirety on Amazon Prime USA (well, less 50 minutes shown elsewhere), we finally have an interview with Tom to help promote the show! It is quite brief, but we are grateful for anything. Tom reveals the decisions behind the use of different accents in The Collection. I actually thought it was to show class differences (perceived or actual), so interesting to find out the true reason.

Starfish: new on set video interviews

  • Alt
Interviews with Tom Riley, Joanne Froggatt, Bill Clark, Pippa Cross, as well as Tom and Nic Ray, recorded on the set of Starfish, have been shared on You Tube by Land's End. This was first uploaded last October, but didn't turn up in any of my searches sadly, especially as it is the only one we have had from the set.

Tom Riley and Joanne Froggatt provide some wonderful background to filming a true story from the actor's point of view, while Tom and Nic Ray describe how making Starfish brought closure for them.
