Welcome to this website dedicated to the extraordinary British actor Tom Mison. Tom is known for his roles in Lost in Austen, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and Parade's End. Tom currently plays Ichabod Crane on the hit television series Sleepy Hollow. His recently released independent film Dead Cat is now available on VimeoVOD.
Classical Comics has posted new images of Tom with co-star Anne-Marie Piazza on their Facebook page, taken during the recording of their Romeo and Juliet Interactive Motion Comic in 2010. The production, along with a graphic novel, is for use in the classroom by teachers to help students better understand Shakespeare. You can hear a demo of the production, or purchase it if you are an educator, on their website.
UPDATE: You can buy the original text along with the complete audio soundtrack on CD from the Classical Comics website (all the way at the bottom of the page) for £19.99. They do ship internationally.
MCM Comic Con has just announced that Tom will be making his first appearance at their London event on Friday, May 27th and Saturday, May 28th. Passes into the con are going quickly, but still available on the MCM Comic Con website, and you can also purchase photo ops in advance on the site as well. Autographs are bought at the show.
Check back for further information about any panels or interviews closer to the show's dates.
If you haven't downloaded and viewed the movie Dead Cat yet, you really need to correct that as soon as possible. It is a cheeky, heartfelt film about love and friendship that is funny as well as touching. It is quite a different type of role for Tom and necessary viewing for all of his fans. The film is available for purchase or rental on Vimeo on Demand. Please leave a comment for them on the Vimeo page once you've watched it -- it was such a labor of love for the filmmakers, and it would be wonderful for them to get some of that love back from the fans.
Recently, Director/Writer Stefan Georgiou and Actor/Writer Sam Bern were kind enough to give live commentary on the film for us. They told stories about how scenes were originally conceived, how they had to make do with certain things because of budget limitations (although you'd never know), even gushed about Tom a little and answered many questions from the fans who were watching and tweeting along. It was such a special thing for them to do. You can watch the commentary below -- even better yet, play it along with the film (they give you a count down so you know when to hit play) to get some great insight into this fantastic indie film.
It all comes down to tonight - will Crane and Abbie get back to Sleepy Hollow with Pandora's Box in time to stop The Hidden One and save the world? In two sneak peeks, we see the team working to make that happen, and in the preview, it looks like they may be getting help from an old noggin-challenged friend. FYI, the second clip below is a little more spoilery than the first, and a lot more heartbreaking.
Tune into the Sleepy Hollow Season 3 Finale tonight at 8/7c on FOX, and (as always) tweet using the hashtag #SleepyHollow to help the show trend.
