Edward Thomas Hardy CBE, born 15th September 1977. Originally a model then actor and film producer. His movie debut was in a Ridley Scott film in 2001. Tom was named one of GQ magazine’s 50 best dressed British men in 2015. One of the highest profile actors in contemporary British popular culture, Hardy appeared on Debrett’s 2016 list of the most influential people in the United Kingdom.
Hardy was addicted to alcohol and crack cocaine during his mid-20s, after which he checked himself into rehab following a particular low point. He has said that he was ‘out of control’ on drinks and drugs before he turned his life around, and was lucky that he did not contract HIV while he was at his lowest.
During the filming of Bronson, Hardy met with Britain’s most notorious prisoner several times and the two became good friends. Bronson was impressed with how Hardy managed to get just as muscular as he was and how well he could mimic his own personality and voice. Bronson has stated he believes Hardy was the only person who could play him.
