Tom Hollander

  1. Adrien Gillen, Game of Thrones, TV, 2011-2017.   Like so many others refusing roles, Hollander later declared he regretted passing on Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish. But in 2011 who could imagine that the bloodthirsty family battles for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms would  become  an HBO colossus. Shakespeare without the words.
  2. Dean-Charles Chapman, 1917, 2019.   The latest (and greatest)  Spider-Man was in talks about playing Lance Corporal Blake in  UK director Sam Mendes’ amazing WWI film.. Tom’s overcrowded diary got in the way….   even for  a film designed to look like one continuous tak! Which of course it wasn’t. Shooting took three months – after six months’ rehearsal! – on seven UK locations and at Shepperton Studios.   And the longest actual take was 8 1/2 minutes.
