Strike Preview at the BFI in London and Q and A Tom was in attendance along with Holliday Grainger, Executive Ruth Kenley-Letts, Director Micahel Keillor, and writer Ben Richards at the preview screening of ‘Strike’ in London on 10th August. I was lucky enough to get a set and it was a huge privilege to get to see the first episode (which was surpassed my hopes and was brilliant!) They also announced the air date then followed with a 45 minute Q & A session with was very interesting and hugely entertaining(Tom offering to perm his hair at one point caused alot of hilarity!)I will try and come up with a rough transcript of what was said but in the meantime I’ll share below some photos from the evening courtesy of FarFarAway / Bronte films/BBC

First photos from ‘The Souvenir’ filming. First glimpse of Tom on set on The Souvenir being photographed by Mark Box.Also a lovely behind the scenes photo taken by Jack W Weeks @2geeks1b on twitter - It sounds like Tom's performance is going to be potentially harrowing as Jack described Tom’s acting as ‘Haunting’. Jack is the mental health and addiction consultant on the movie and also has an acting role too. He also hinted that Tom may be in the second movie which Robert Pattinson is involved in set later timewise. The first movie, set in the 1980’s is due to be released late 2018 and filming for the second movie commences Summer 2018. Thank you to Mark and Jack for sharing.
