Hamlet: Clip from the Trevor Nunn Production


Hard core Tom fans know that Hamlet was his first professional job out of drama school. He played Fortinbras and Francisco (or, as he put it here, "various other assholes") in the 2004 West End production, directed by Trevor Nunn and starring Ben Whishaw. Super sleuth @kaysaint514 just unearthed a clip from the production, posted by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. For those interested, you can view the whole play at the London museum when you schedule in advance through their website. Tom can be glimpsed in the clip posted below setting down a chair.




Production Photos of Tom's First Professional Job

Production photos have been found of Tom (wearing sunglasses) appearing as Francisco in the 2004 production of Hamlet at the Old Vic - his first professional job out of drama school. The production starred Ben Whishaw as Hamlet, and was directed by Trevor Nunn. Tom also played Fortinbras.

Thanks to eagle-eye Pam for finding them!

Hamlet: images

Many thanks to forum member 6point7 who scanned her old Hamlet programme, so that we now have some great images of rehearsals from the 2004 Old Vic production.

They have been added to the gallery.
