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.
FOX has released its Fall schedule ahead of this afternoon's Upfront presentation in New York City, and announced that Sleepy Hollow will be moving to Thursdays after Bones at 9pm. You can view the full Fall primetime schedule here.
Tom will be attending the presentation, so make sure to check back for photos from the red carpet. Festivities were apparently already under way yesterday, with this photo being posted last night:
The wheels on the Sleepy Hollow Season 3 train are starting to turn, as the writers returned to work last week. Led by new showrunner Clifton Campbell (@CCInnuendo), they have quite a challenge ahead, perhaps made even greater by the announcement yesterday of Orlando Jones not returning as Captain Frank Irving. There are a couple of notable additions to the room - Shernold Edwards (Haven) who is on Twitter as @ShernoldEdwards, and Leigh Dana Jackson (Alcatraz/666ParkAve/The Tomorrow People) who can be found @LDJackson, have joined the team.
The latest word is that shooting will begin again mid-July in Atlanta, with the premiere date still in September. We should find out more details come Monday from the Upfronts - the presentations by the networks to advertising executives of their new slates of programming for Fall. FOX is one of the first major networks out of the gate on Monday afternoon.
Tom is truly in his element when he is up on the dais at a Con - whether it's with the whole Sleepy Hollow cast at New York Comic Con, on the Brave New Warriors panel at San Diego Comic Con, or even when he is flying solo, as he did this past weekend in Las Vegas. He's sharp, he's charming, he's informative. He is just delightful. See for yourself in the video below.
I have uploaded the second and third parts to the panel video I shot from the front row, though due to technical difficulties I missed a couple of questions. My advice is to watch the above video for content, then take a look at mine for some priceless facial expressions and loads of hand porn. There's your evening sorted (you're welcome).
Tom charmed the socks off yet another Comic Con this past weekend in Las Vegas. He started off by tossing granola bars and handing out Red Bull from the goody bag waiting at the signing table for him when he first arrived, then proceeded to take a few moments with each fan to chat, take selfies and patiently sign photos, bags and memorabilia for everyone waiting. He had several signing sessions throughout the weekend, as well as a lightning fast photo op with fans each day - those Con photographers do not mess around.
This was the inaugural event for Wizard World in the Las Vegas venue. Attendance wasn't huge, but it was refreshing to be able to walk a Con floor and not get jostled around by backpacks and cosplay weapons/wings/appendages for a change. The Las Vegas Convention Center was a bit out of the way, but easily reached by monorail, and being in Vegas, had the added bonus of plenty of restaurants and entertainment available outside the con. Perfect for, say, a large group of Sleepyheads to get together and support the very talented actor who plays their favorite cantankerous, time traveling Revolutionary War Captain and Witness (with a capital W). Lucky for us, they offered the "Tom Mison VIP Experience," so waiting on lines was kept to a minimum, and we got seats in the first two rows at the panel with no problem at all. Well worth the expense.
Photos, including the ones above, are up in the galleries - there are more to come, so check back over the next few days. Tom also did a really fun, fairly casual panel, with fans asking the questions and getting pretty vocal from the audience. A few times the panel in the next room got a little too loud and Tom and moderator Chris Payne decided to retaliate, leading the audience in a group fangirl scream to counteract it. All while Tom flipped them off. PRICELESS.
Below you'll find video of the first part of the panel - parts 2 and 3 (with the aforementioned flipping off) will follow soon.
