Shirtless Tom Hardy shows off his tattoos and muscles as he cuts a brooding figure in official sneak peek for new TV series Taboo

He cause the internet to nearly crash when he was pictured stripping naked to film scenes for the show in February.

And in a new official sneak-peak for the up-coming FX show Taboo, Tom Hardy has stripped off once-again to showcase his hulking physique and menacing character.

Introducing his roguish character, the explorer James Keziah Delaney, the 38-year-old actor is pictured wading shirtless through the foreboding waters of a swamp.

The first official teaser released ahead of the period drama’s debut later this year sets the scene for the regency drama.

Captured on camera wading through murky waters, the tattooed and muscular form of Delaney can be seen traversing a swampy lake - giving fans a glimpse of the rugged character in full. (+)
