Hollywood star Tom Hardy causes frenzy among admirers while filming in Liverpool
Brit actor and Hollywood star Tom Hardy caused quite a frenzy among admirers as he arrived for filming in the city.
Tom, who is probably best known for his blockbuster big- screen role as Bane in the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, as well as Bronson, Inception and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, is in town for a few days to film his latest role on the second series of hit BBC drama Peaky Blinders.
But while he may have a grueling and busy schedule during his week-long stay, the star still managed to fit in time for his adoring fans while he enjoyed a meal in the city centre.
Insider’s spy spotted him signing autographs and posing for photos with dozens of fans and passers-by, who couldn’t quite believe their eyes when they saw him enjoying a meal at the London Carriage Works restaurant on Hope Street.
The 36-year-old, whose next outing will be in the upcoming Mad Max film, was joined by his partner actress Charlotte Riley and the couple’s beloved pet dog named Woodstock, as well as a couple of friends.
One staff member at the restaurant tells Insider: “We were all starstruck when Tom walked in but he was so down to earth and not at all big-headed. He was chatting away and posing for pictures with the staff and fellow diners during his meal.
“He certainly caused some excitement as we had lots of fans and even groups of people from nearby restaurants who came running to the hotel when they heard Tom was sitting, having a meal, in the window of the Carriage Works. But Tom didn’t seem to mind as he spent around 15 minutes having a chat with them outside.”
Although he is in the city for a week it seems the hard-working star sadly won’t get to see many sights. He told fans: “Unfortunately I won’t get to look around much as I will be working. I’m doing 12-hour days so I get tired.”
