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, next to 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, the brother of Samwell Tarly, in season 7.
