The first image of Tom as Major Perowne has been posted online.  The series will air later this year, though no official airdate has been set.

'One Day' Director's Commentary

Thanks to Serina in the Darcylicious Forum, we learned that One Day director Lone Scherfig had some very nice things to say about Tom in the Director's Commentary.  Here is what she said:

"Tom Mison, who plays Callum, to the left, is a brilliant actor, and every moment he is actually in this film, is in the film.  We have had to trim a lot of scenes down and out.  But somehow every thing that Tom did, survived.  He is a very interesting actor who I’m looking forward to seeing more of.  Lots of nuances, and he actually manages to defend Callum, who is not that sympathetic in the script."

Needless to say, we certainly agree.  If you'd like to hear it for yourself, that particular piece of commentary can be found in the wedding scene, about 1:04:00 into the movie.

April 10th London Premiere for Salmon Fishing

It looks like the London red carpet premiere for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen will be on April 10th, at the Odeon West End, Leicester Square.  Absolutely no idea whether Tom will be in attendance or not.

The film is doing well, having opened in limited release in North America.  The first week saw it in only 18 theaters, but it has expanded to 62 now, and hopefully even more in the coming weeks.  It has opened in Hungary, and has upcoming releases in Singapore, Norway, Sweden, Argentina and Australia and more, and is slated for an April 20th release in the UK.

1883 Magazine Interview

1883 Magazine Interview

1883 Magazine has published a wonderful interview with Tom, by Daniela Morosini, where he talks about shooting in Morrocco, hobbies, his dark sense of humor, and the Suicide Brothers, among other things.  There are also photos by Gabriel Green. 

Here's an excerpt:

"What was your back-up plan, if acting didn’t work out?

I never gave myself one, because then I’d be tempted to fall back on it. Every actor has a time when they’re not working. Luckily I got mine out of the way quite early. If I’d had a fall-back plan, I would have used it. I had a job in a pub for 10 days...was asked to leave for being too sarcastic to the locals, who I didn’t like, and they didn’t like me. I never wanted to be a waiter who was claiming to be an actor, too. But they’re probably brilliant, lots of them."
