The British actor has certainly made a name for himself through his charismatic roles, but these aren’t the only reasons why people love him so much.

And that is a reason alone!

The star suffered from alcoholism and drug addiction during his teen and early adult years.

Hardy set his sights on a career on-screen, pursuing acting at the Richmond Drama School followed by the prestigious Drama Centre London.

In a December 2002 interview with IGN, the actor stated, “When other schools would be doing, sort of, 30 hours, we were doing 60. And we’d be doing stuff that would prepare you in a very different way.”

And he stepped into the spotlight for his role in Band Of Brothers  back in 2001.

Hardy is best known for his roles in movies and series such as Inception (2010), The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Legend (2015), and Peaky Blinders (2014-2019).

Hardy is very passionate about his charity work.

The Prince’s Trust is the U.K’s leading youth charity that works with people between the ages of thirteen-thirty who struggle with many different aspects of life – such as school, addictions, and homelessness.

He is a prime example of a man who, with the right help, battled his addictions and turned his life around.

And from his own life experiences, he wants to help disadvantaged children as much as he can.

The star has a son, Louis Thomas Hardy, born on April 8, 2008, with ex-girlfriend Rachel Speed. He also has 2 children with his wife, British actress Charlotte Riley.

CBeebies is the BBC children’s channel in the U.K. and he made a guest appearance on New Year’s Eve to read a story for all the children watching.

It was a total success

And the star went on to appear and read bedtime stories on the channel several times.

And some of the reactions to the news are hilarious.

The broadcaster announced the exciting news on Wednesday. Keep scrolling to find out when to tune in…

But that hasn’t stopped parents marking their calendars.

Fans are very pleased with the news…

“Thank god for that. Doing his bit for the nation.”

Maybe a small percentage of viewers will be kids, at least?

He will be reading every night between April 27 and May 1. In other Tom-related news, he may have just dropped a serious hint about the upcoming Venom 2 movie. Keep scrolling for the story…
