Биография

With his breakthrough performance as Eames in Christopher Nolan’s science fiction thriller Начало (2010), English actor Tom Hardy has been brought to the attention of mainstream audiences worldwide. However, the versatile actor has been steadily working on both stage and screen since his television debut in the miniseries Братья по оружию (2001). After being cast in the World War II drama, Hardy left his studies at the prestigious Drama Centre in London and was subsequently cast as Twombly in Ridley Scott’s Черный Ястреб (2001) and as the villain Shinzon in Звездный путь: Возмездие (2002). Edward Thomas Hardy was born on September 15, 1977 in Hammersmith, London; his mother, Elizabeth Anne (Barrett), is an artist and painter, and his father, Chips Hardy, is a writer. He is of English and Irish descent. Hardy was brought up in East Sheen, London, and first studied at Reed’s School. His education continued at Tower House School, then at Richmond Drama School, and subsequently at the Drama Centre London, along with fellow Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender. After winning a modeling competition at age 21, he had a brief contract with the agency Models One. Tom spent his teens and early twenties battling delinquency, alcoholism and drug addiction; after completing his work on Звездный путь: Возмездие (2002), he sought treatment and has also admitted that his battles with addiction ended his 5-year marriage to Sarah Ward. Returning to work in 2003, Hardy was awarded the Evening Standard Most Promising Newcomer Award for his theatre performances in the productions of “In Arabia, We’d All Be Kings” and “Blood”. In 2003, Tom also co-starred in the play “The Modernists” with Paul Popplewell, Jesse Spencer and Orlando Wells. During the next five years, Hardy worked consistently in film, television and theatre, playing roles as varied as Robert Dudley in the BBC’s Королева-девственница (2005), Bill Sikes in Оливер Твист (2007) and starring in “The Man of Mode” at the National Theatre. On the silver screen, he appeared in the crime thriller Слоеный торт (2004) with Daniel Craig, Sofia Coppola’s Мария Антуанетта (2006), and the romp Сцены сексуального характера (2006). In 2006, Hardy created “Shotgun”, an underground theatre company along with director Robert Delamere, and directed a play, penned by his father for the company, called “Blue on Blue”. In 2007, Hardy received a best actor BAFTA nomination for his touching performance as Stuart Shorter in the BBC adaptation of Alexander Masters’ bestselling biography Стюарт: Прошлая жизнь (2007). Hardy, hailed for his transformative character acting, was lauded for his emotionally and physically convincing portrayal in the ill-fated and warmhearted tale of Shorter, a homeless and occasionally violent man suffering from addiction and muscular dystrophy. The following year, he appeared as gay hoodlum Handsome Bob in the Guy Ritchie film Рок-н-рольщик (2008), but this would be his next transformation that would prove his extensive range and stun critics. In the film Бронсон (2008), Hardy played the notorious Charles Bronson (given name, Michael Peterson), the “most violent prisoner in Britain”. Bald, pumped-up, and outfitted with Bronson’s signature strongman mustache, Hardy is unrecognizable and gives a harrowing performance that is physically fearless and psychologically unsettling. Director Nicolas Winding Refn breaks the fourth wall with Hardy retelling his tales directly to viewers as well as performing them outright before an audience of his own imagining. The performance mixes terrifying brutality, vaudevillian showmanship, wry humor, and an alarming amount of commitment, and won Hardy a British Independent Film Award for Best Actor. The performance got Hollywood’s attention, and in 2009, Hardy was named one of Variety’s “10 Actors to Watch”. That year, he continued to garner praise for his starring role in Прикуп (2009), a four-part adaptation of Martina Cole’s bestselling crime novel, as well as for his performance as Heathcliff in a version of Грозовой перевал (2009). Recent work includes the aforementioned breakthrough appearance in Начало (2010) alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Ken Watanabe, Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard and Ellen Page. The movie was released in July 2010 and became one of top 25 highest grossing films of all time, collecting eight Oscar nominations (including Best Picture) and winning four. Other films include Воин (2011), opposite Joel Edgerton, the story of two estranged brothers facing the fight of a lifetime from director Gavin O’Connor, and Значит, война (2012), directed by McG and co-starring Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine. Tom also starred in the heralded Cold War thriller, Шпион, выйди вон! (2011) with Colin Firth and Gary Oldman. Hardy rejoined Christopher Nolan for Тёмный рыцарь: Возрождение легенды (2012); he played the villain role of Bane opposite Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gary Oldman. Hardy’s menacing physique and his character’s scrambled, hard-to-distinguish voice became a major discussion point as the film was released. Outside of performing, Hardy is the patron for the charity “Flack”, which is an organization to aid the recovery of the homeless in Cambridge. And in 2010, Hardy was named an Ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, which helps disadvantaged youth. On the recent stage, he starred in the Brett C. Leonard play “The Long Red Road” in early 2010. Written for Hardy and directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman, the play was staged at Chicago’s Goodman Theater. In 2015, Hardy starred as the iconic Mad Max in George Miller’s reboot of his franchise, Безумный Макс: Дорога ярости (2015). He also collected a British Independent Film Award for his portrayal of both the Kray twins, Ronnie and Reggie, in Легенда (2015), and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role as John Fitzgerald in Выживший (2015). Hardy also starred in the BBC Peaky Blinders, alongside Cillian Murphy, and in the TV series Taboo, both created by Steven Knight. He has an outlaw biker story among other projects in development. In 2010, Hardy became engaged to fellow English actress Charlotte Riley, whom he starred with in Прикуп (2009) and Грозовой перевал (2009), and is raising a young son, Louis, with ex-girlfriend Rachael Speed.
