Hollywood star Tom Hardy causes frenzy among admirers while filming in Liverpool
Brit actor and Hollywood star Tom Hardy caused quite a frenzy among admirers as he arrived for filming in the city.
Tom, who is probably best known for his blockbuster big- screen role as Bane in the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, as well as Bronson, Inception and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, is in town for a few days to film his latest role on the second series of hit BBC drama Peaky Blinders.
But while he may have a grueling and busy schedule during his week-long stay, the star still managed to fit in time for his adoring fans while he enjoyed a meal in the city centre.
Insider’s spy spotted him signing autographs and posing for photos with dozens of fans and passers-by, who couldn’t quite believe their eyes when they saw him enjoying a meal at the London Carriage Works restaurant on Hope Street.
The 36-year-old, whose next outing will be in the upcoming Mad Max film, was joined by his partner actress Charlotte Riley and the couple’s beloved pet dog named Woodstock, as well as a couple of friends.
One staff member at the restaurant tells Insider: “We were all starstruck when Tom walked in but he was so down to earth and not at all big-headed. He was chatting away and posing for pictures with the staff and fellow diners during his meal.
“He certainly caused some excitement as we had lots of fans and even groups of people from nearby restaurants who came running to the hotel when they heard Tom was sitting, having a meal, in the window of the Carriage Works. But Tom didn’t seem to mind as he spent around 15 minutes having a chat with them outside.”
Although he is in the city for a week it seems the hard-working star sadly won’t get to see many sights. He told fans: “Unfortunately I won’t get to look around much as I will be working. I’m doing 12-hour days so I get tired.”
Tom Hardy to write and star in Bluebell
Posted 10 March 2014.
Tom Hardy has teamed up with his father to write and star in new series ‘Bluebell’.
The 36-year-old actor and his writer father Edward - who is known as Chips - have been working together on a new detective series in which he will take on the lead role of Detective Bluebell.
A source said: ”It’s a lovely project for the pair of them.
”Tom has been wanting to do more writing and directing with his dad being a novelist, it means they can tap into each other’s expertise. They have been working on it for a while as they initially submitted the pilot over a year ago.”
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ star - who is also set to appear on the small screen in the second series of BBC Two gangster drama ‘Peaky Blinders’ - is expected to see his first writing project come to life as early as next year, as ‘Bluebell’ has now been commissioned by Sky Atlantic.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: ”But now the contract has been signed and it’s full steam ahead for the series. It is early days but it is being planned to be aired in 2015.”
Chips’ previous writing credits include the Channel 4 children’s series ‘Helping Harry’ and ‘The Dave Allen Show’.

Thanks greatly to Tom Hardy tenacious talent , Nicholas Winding Refn was able to achieve his vision because in my opinion had he cast Jason Statham whom he originally wanted, Bronson would not have been acclaimed or acknowledged in the way it was.
Tom Hardy alone drove the sledgehammer of a film by sheer brute force talent and outsized talent.
Lots of encounters and photos with Tom Hardy today but I’m posting this one for the comments and the huge smiles. If you want to know how unfailingly kind and sweet Tom is to fans, this pretty much says it all. :))
1. Andy Taylor - So that’s totally Tom Hardy but I’m too much of a pussy to go and say hello.

LOCKE TRAILER # 2
This is an exceptional trailer, roping us in with its tidy, moody music, its snippets of significant but mysterious events locking us up in the pure emotion of the drama that will unfold. Though I have not seen the film, I anticipate it with excitement and definite dread for the journey Mr Knight and Mr Hardy will be taking me on.
Tom Hardy is NOT just an actor but a pure ever-evolving artist…a master craftsman honing and sharpening his crazy overflowing talent…Locke is not mainstream, it’s not a blockbuster…but his involvement in this independent film makes this production a throbbing fault line of anticipation.
Damn, I thought the first trailer was great, this one is fantastic.
