He has experience with big-screen media.
The 28-year-old actor has played villains from the 21st century to an 18th-century British colonel during World War II. Fans may recall him from his portrayal as Lieutenant Jeremy Foster in the first two seasons of Outlander, a British officer who honourably gives assistance to heroine Claire – before his terrible Season 2 death. He also made a cameo in Season 3 of Call the Midwife. Or perhaps viewers will recognise him as the highly unlikable Roger Lockwood from the drama series UnReal, whose appearances on a reality show akin to The Bachelor are marred by scandal and controversy.
His mother is dramatist and mystery author Lynn Brittney.
The Mayfair 100 mystery series, which is set in Mayfair, London during World War I, was written by Tom’s mother, Lynn Brittney, who is widely renowned in her own right. With the assistance of a team of smart ladies and experienced police officers, the young Chief Inspector Peter Beech looks into deaths. Together, they comb through the streets of London to look into gangs, brothels, drug rings, and more in order to solve the murder riddles at hand. tom brittney said they were now working on turning the series into a TV show, so be on the lookout!
He has a strong interest in photography.
In a Parade interview, tom brittney stated that he is passionate about both acting and photography and that he spends a lot of his free time taking pictures. Even though he laments not doing the same for his most recent tom brittney Hanks film, Greyhound, he carried his camera to the Grantchester set.
Since he was a young child, he has desired to be an actor.
Tom brittney, who was born in Gravesend, Kent, England, was surrounded by artists growing up, especially his mother, who was a playwright and author. He just knew acting was what he wanted to do from a young age.
In a 2015 interview, Tom brittney stated, “My mother was my acting teacher in elementary school and she encouraged me to stick at it.” “However, I didn’t know I could do it for a living until I was about 14 or 15 years old. As a result of my question, “How can you build a profession out of something so exciting and interesting to do?” I’ve generally expected folks like Brad Pitt have a normal everyday employment. then, in my senior year of high school, my theatre teacher there suggested that I consider attending a drama school. That’s exactly what he did, too. Before graduating from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London, Tom brittney secured his first professional position.
He is aware of the large shoes he must fill.
It was understandable that entering the fourth season of a show as its star was a difficult undertaking. Even more challenging was attempting to fill James Norton’s shoes. I knew what Sidney Chambers meant to people, even though I’m not playing the same part as James Norton; it’s an entirely different character, tom brittney remarked. So, there was pressure to think that they would adore Will just as much as they did Sidney.
In a meeting with March magazine, tom brittney said, “as far as getting the new person, the beneficial thing with the show is that it was like craftsmanship duplicating life, in light of the fact that my personality comes in and the local area around him don’t actually take to him as fast as he would need, which presumably repeats a touch of the viewership too. In any case, as the show advances, they continuously figure out how to like him, and ideally the crowd will as well.
His new BFF is Robson Green.
Being welcomed into the close-knit cast was undoubtedly made simpler by the kindness of everyone, especially Norton’s right-hand man, Robson Green. In a recent cast roundtable, tom brittney shared his earliest memory of first encountering Robson. “You just bounded up to me right away, and I knew you were Robson Green because! I grew up watching you on television, then one day you just approached me and asked, “Hey, how you doing?” And you were very welcoming. It simply felt so comfortable and like we clicked.”
Tom brittney says Robson is a genuine buddy. He is the most caring individual you could ever would like to meet. You constantly worry that famous people you deal with could not be as kind as they seem, but he is without a doubt pleasant.
