Daily Dragon: Man Out of Time



A wonderful new interview with Tom was posted by the Daily Dragon, Dragon Con's official news source. In it he has much to say about his process as an actor, about Shakespeare and even about his short film "Steve" and working with Colin Firth. He also mentions that he'd love to go back on stage again.

DD: Are you planning any new projects or maybe a return to the stage sometime soon?

TM: I’d really love to! The two hiatuses that we’ve had, it’s been really, really—it’s bummed me out a lot because I’ve had to turn down a lot of really good work because it clashed with the start of the next series. And that goes against every fiber of an actor’s being, to say no. There were some really exciting things there. I desperately miss the theatre. This is the longest time I’ve gone without doing a play. There’s one that my theatre company in London, that I’m involved with, a company called simple8, we have a show planned for the beginning of next year in London, which I might—we devised and wrote it—and I might go be in that if I can.

Very exciting news! When asked about his Twitter account disappearing, Tom confirms that it has only been deactivated, not deleted, because it was just too much of a distraction while he was working. At least that mystery is now solved.

Dragon Con 2015: Final Schedule Posted



With the con starting this Friday, final schedules for panels and photo ops have at long last been released. Tom will be making appearances on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and will be available to sign autographs in the Walk of Fame at table 66 when he is not doing photo ops or on a panel. Here’s what his schedule looks like:

5:30 pm  Photo Ops (with Nicole and John) at Photo Booth 2

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm  Sleepy Hollow Q&A Panel with Nicole and Corey Castellano in the Westin Augusta Ballroom
6:10 pm  Photo Ops (with Nicole and John) at Photo Booth 1

2:30-3:30 pm  Sleepy Hollow Q&A panel with Nicole in Marriott Atrium Ballroom (will also be rebroadcast on DCTV                                   on Mon at 12:30)
5:30 pm  Photo Ops (with Nicole) at Photo Booth 1

For hardcore Sleepyheads, chief monster maker Corey Castellano will be doing a Monsters of Sleepy Hollow panel on Friday at 2:30 pm in Westin Peachtree 1-2.

If you have purchased a photo op, it is recommended that you arrive at least 15 minutes ahead of time. For the Q&A panels, there may be lines to get in, so it’s a good idea to get there early or at least check to see what kind of line there is periodically so you are assured a seat.

Make sure to download the Dragon Con app for the most up to date information, and grab the Dragon Con Pocket Program, which can be found on the Dragon Con homepage. It's also a great idea to follow @DragonCon and @DragonConHorror on Twitter for news, and there is even a Facebook page for newbies that can be really helpful in finding your way around.
Needless to say, make sure to check back here for updates, photos, videos and maybe even some interviews from the con once it gets going!
UPDATE: Sunday's photo op schedule already changed once after the 'final' schedule was posted, so keep checking back for any further updates!
UPDATE (9/1/15): John Noble was added to the Friday photo op session as well, so have amended the above schedule accordingly
UPDATE (9/2/15): Froggy's Photos has revised their timetable again, posting presumably their absolute, for real, final photo op schedule. Changes are reflected above.
UPDATE (#2 - 9/2/15): Just to keep me on my toes, Dragon Con has now moved Tom and Nicole's panel on Sunday to a different time slot and location. See above.

Sleepy Hollow: First Official Season 3 Promo Photo



They've certainly taken their sweet time, but FOX has finally shared their first promo image for Sleepy Hollow Season 3, and it is a beaut. Ichabod on the porch, contemplating life as a witness or maybe just what he's planning to have for dinner. Either way, it's great to see the official Sleepy Hollow Twitter account (@SleepyHollowFOX) posting again and perhaps this means we'll be seeing more very very soon.


Dragon Con 2015: Tom Does Double Duty on Panels



Good news for those of you attending Dragon Con in a few weeks - Tom is on the schedule for 2 panels!

The schedule is considered tentative until it is made official a week or two before the con begins, but right now there is a Q&A session scheduled with just Tom for Saturday, September 5th at 4pm. Then at 1 pm on Sunday, September 6th, there will be a Sleepy Hollow panel with Tom, John Noble and monster maker Corey Castellano. Corey will even have his own panel - The Monsters of Sleepy Hollow - on Friday at 2:30pm. Locations are all TBD at this point.

If you are attending, make sure to download the Dragon Con app, which will be updated soon with all the scheduling information.
