Taboo | Press Conference: Photocall Los Angeles, US - January 12, 2017.
Tom on the television show ‘Taboo’, speaks onstage during the FX portion of
the 2017 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at Langham
Tom Hardy’s ‘Taboo’ Character Is Inspired by ‘Oliver Twist,’ ‘Heart of Darkness,’ Jack the Ripper
It started as a conversation between Tom Hardy and his father, Chips.
Nine years ago, Hardy was fresh off playing Sikes in a production of
“Oliver Twist.” “I said I wanted to take Sikes and put him in a
gentleman’s body,” Hardy told reporters at the Television Critics
Association winter press tour. But he didn’t want to stop there, adding:
“‘And what if you put a bit of Marlow in “Heart of Darkness” in there?
And maybe, ‘also he could have some Jack the Ripper.’ And my father
said, ‘Tom, will you just close the door on your way out, I’m trying to
finish my novel.‘”
A year later, the elder Hardy presented his son with a basic treatment for the story of a character that fit that description. (+)

“Julie and I spoke ahead of time about this,” CW President Mark Pedowitz said at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Sunday. “The Originals has not yet premiered for the season.
