Tom is thrilled to be getting his Gunslinger on. Tom is best known for his role as Carl King in ITV's Emmerdale, a role he played for 9 years. Aside from this Tom has also appeared in The Bill, Doctors and Heartbeat. Theatre credits include the recent world premiere of Water Babies the musical at Leicester Curve where he played Grimes and Eel, Ralph in The Accrington Pals (West Yorkshire Playhouse), Titus/Fool in Bill Shakespeare's Italian Job (Gilded Balloon - Edinburgh), Pan in Love's Mistress (Globe Theatre) and Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Settle Festival of Theatre). 

Other interests include; Singing, (although this is only Tom's second musical, he is a regular performer at the Royal Albert Hall for Christmas Carols with the Stars) and Extreme Sporting Challenges for charity.  Tom has done Marathons, Triathlons and Cycle challenges all to raise money for causes close to his heart. He recently completed a 2000 mile bike ride across Europe to raise awareness and support the fight against Human Trafficking in the UK.  The bike ride was called the Zoe Challenge and raised £250,000 for the charity Hope for Justice.
