In the upcoming British drama miniseries, Taboo, Tom Hardy plays the character named James Keziah Delaney, a tormented man trying to return to his native place after his father's death. But the actor says the role of Delaney is one of the most tortured characters he has ever portrayed.
"Delaney is probably one of the most tortured characters I've played because, for me, he's connected to everyone in the piece in a very personal way. It wasn't just about playing James Delaney but also about really immersing myself in everyone else." Said Tom Hardy in a statement.
"We're still on the edit on Episode 8. It's a slow burn in the way a novel would be. After Episode 3, it starts moving around like a chess piece. I don't find it that dark - I just had fun playing in it." Hardy explained.
Hardy also puts light on the prospect of him featuring in the future Batman movies and said, "I was speaking to Chris [Nolan] when we were doing screen tests and he asked what I thought I would like to do vocally,"
"And I said, 'there are two roads that it could go down at this moment in time, one is orthodox and however you want to build it.' Instead, he showed him a video of Gorman, and the voice of Bane was born. Bane is not too far from the real person," Hardy stated further.
