Actor Tom Hopper (Game of Thrones / Black Sails / The Umbrella Academy) is coming to Ghent!
FACTS welcomes its next guest actor (April 6-7 in Flanders Expo)
When looking at Tom Hopper's acting career, the word 'skyrocket' comes to mind. Especially when your 'humble beginnings' lie in top-notch series like Doctor Who and when you've been a part of huge productions such as Game of Thrones, Black Sails, Merlin and the recent Netflix hit series The Umbrella Academy. FACTS is therefore honoured to announce Tom Hopper as its next guest actor for its Spring Edition, on April 6-7 in Flanders Expo Ghent.
Although an actor from the year 1985 is considered pretty young in the actor world, Tom Hopper's track record is certainly nothing to snease at. To name just a few big productions: Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, the very enjoyable 2008 Merlin series, Black Sails and The Umbrella Academy, together with Ellen Page.
The Umbrella Academy is a new Netflix hype, an adaptation of the comic series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá. Tom Hopper beautifully portrays Luther Hargreeves, aka Number 1 / Space Guy, the man with superhuman strength. It's as if he's never done anything else but perform in lead roles.
He has of course had lots of practice in Black Sails, where he had the lead role of Billy Bones for 4 seasons straight, and in Merlin, where he portrayed the famous medieval knight character Sir Percival from 2010 until the end of the series in 2012.
In the massive production of Game of Thrones, he convincingly portrays Dickon Tarly, brother of Samwell Tarly, in season 7.
