While Tom Hardy is a verified movie star, the actor is no stranger to TV. Every so often, he pops up on Peaky Blinders, and he has a crazy-looking new series of his own: Taboo.

10 January 2017 9:32 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The show must go on!

Director Kristofer Nyholm and executive producer/writer Steven Knight were also in attendance, along with network stars Alison Wright, Brit Lower, and Cuba Gooding Jr.

Hardy and his father Edward “Chips” Hardy came up with the idea for “Taboo,” in which Tom plays James Keziah Delaney, the estranged son of a man who went mad and died.

Thomas Roach chats with directors Kristoffer Nyholm and Anders Engström about Taboo

Back in November, we had the opportunity to sit down and talk to the directors of the new show TabooKristoffer Nyholm (who directed episodes 1-4) and Anders Engström (who directed episodes 5-8).

Speaking with Kristoffer Nyholm, he revealed what attracted him to the project. “I read the first two scripts. I thought they were fabulous. I had another project at that moment so I was unsure whether I was going to do it. Tom Hardy said ‘do you want to do this with me? Do you want to walk down that road?’ He said ‘we will go to the edge but we might fail’. I thought that was beautiful. I thought it was a personal story for Tom to do. He had strong ideas and instincts about where it was going.”

Nyholm was directing the first four episodes, »

Thomas Roach chats with Tom Hardy and Chips Hardy about Taboo

The new BBC series Taboo gets underway this weekend, and we caught up with the show’s creators Tom and Chips Hardy at the press junket, where they revealed that they have been working on the project for the last few years, and the initial idea came out of a conversation between the two.

“Tom and I wanted to explore a particular character that he had in mind,” said Chips. “We tried to create a world in which that character could operate. The character was a kind of conflicted hero. We also talked about the notion of landmark period drama. We wanted to make a period drama like the old ones. We didn’t have an absolute plan. It was always television.”

Tom said that there was not a clear time period in which the story would have taken »

Interview: Steven Knight on Taboo

Thomas Roach chats with Steven Knight about his new series Taboo starring Tom Hardy

Back in November, we had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Steven Knight about his new show Taboo, which features Tom Hardy in the lead role. When initially meeting Hardy to discuss writing Taboo, Knight took the opportunity to get Hardy involved with his movie Locke, stating that: “We came to an informal agreement that he would do Locke if I did Taboo. That’s how it began.”

Taboo was originally envisioned by Tom Hardy and his father Chips Hardy who had been developing this idea for several years. Knight revealed that the character of James Delaney and the historical period is what attracted him to the project: “I loved the possibilities of what this idea had that an adventurer goes to Africa comes back he’s done some terrible things. Then we follow his life. »
