Tom Hardy: 70 Things You NEED To Know

Tom Hardy: Comedy Roots

Tom says he find the light in some of his dark roles, telling the Guardian: "I do like to find comedy – not boom boom, but circumstance, an incongruous character juxtaposed with a certain situation. My old man is a comedy writer – he wrote for Dave Allen and he writes adverts, and I grew up around that. I have an acute awareness that I'm selling something – lying and keeping a straight face. I was incredibly boring as a child, but I had a sense of humour."
