I had such a great experience on Red White & Blue for so many different reasons that it was only natural that, at some point, I’d return to Austin.

Beyond that, I love the unique style of Austin, the food, the music, »

Speaking with Kristoffer Nyholm, he revealed what attracted him to the project. “I read the first two scripts. I thought they were fabulous.

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. »
