Thomas attended Starfury Events convention Inva3ion on the 3rd-5th May 2013 along with guests from genre shows including Torchwood and Dollhouse. This was his fourth consecutive appearance in the UK and his third to Starfury and the fourth time for many of us meeting him too! Thomas was his usual charming self and gained some new admirers, as well as catching up with some familiar faces.

Notes on a Convention…

Throughout the weekend, we learned a great deal about Thomas and his upcoming projects, so this report contains the general highlights as well as some personal notes and observations! For ease of reading I’ve lumped it all together into specific categories, for example Terminator comments and questions. Apologies for any misquotes Thomas, but shorthand is not the easiest form of recording (but the only one allowed by Starfury). There are more posts to follow in the days to come!

About the UK
Thomas shared that he regards the UK as his “second home” and spent Christmas in Wales with his family. There was lots of “drama and drinking” but it was a fun Christmas and he was wearing the I Love The ‘Diff hoodie his Uncle Nigel bought him.

So would Thomas consider filming in UK? “Oh my god yes, I’d love to. I love the UK and Wales, it’s my second home! It’d be a dream. I spent Christmas in Wales. Lots of drama and lots of drinking with my crazy family. Up to last year I’d never shot outside of the USA and Canada. Now I’ve filmed in Sweden and Israel.” But his favourite filming location is still Montreal.

Upcoming Projects
“Snap with Nikki Reed and Jake Hoffman…I play a beach rat in Venice Beach in Squatters…Catherine Hardwicke’s movie Plush as a goth rocker…and Transference. And the pilot of Backstrom as a male version of The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo. And The White City, filmed in Tel Aviv, but THIS convention is more fun!”

The Good Lie? “It’s in Toronto and Montreal from May 3rd. It’s going to Cannes to try and get UK and European distribution. I play a comfy suburbanite kid whose mother dies in a car accident. Six months later he finds a video that tells him his father is not his real father and his biological father raped his mother. He goes off on a quest to find his father. It’s an exciting movie, I’m very proud of it. So look out for that.”

“The pilot I’ve just filmed, Backstrom. We should find out next week if it’s picked up, but I’m confident it will be. It’s based on Swedish crime novels and I play the male equivalent of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” When I asked for clarification about his guest star status, he explained “I’m a guest star but will be in every episode, because I didn’t want to move again and being a guest means I don’t have to buy a house and a car there and move my life again.”

“Also The White City with Haley Bennett from Kaboom. It’s about three young artists in a love triangle. Haley and I are together, she’s a hopeful writer I’m a hopeful film maker and we go to Tel Aviv to be inspired. We meet a guy just out of the army, Haley falls for him and I become artistically obsessed with him. It shakes our relationship and there’s a seed of political threat. There’s also The Pretenders.”

“Transference was a short film, four days in New York and a week in Sweden. I told him it was going to be too long to be a short and he wrote in a new aspect, and he got a lot more money and now it’s a feature. It’s about relationships and how they might mean more to you than they did to the other person. Obsessing. Beautifully shot, beautiful to look at…minus my face,” he joked.

Walk of Fame
Thomas sighed as I asked him about Walk of Fame, the movie that has been in development for some time and will mark Thomas’s feature film making debut. “It was getting off the ground with finances and then The Secret Circle came so it got put on the back burner. Then I did back to back movies. Nikki Reed from Snap is going to play one of the girls and co-produce. It’s going to cost $1 million for a 23 day shoot. It feels like climbing a mountain.”

Still to come; Terminator, The Secret Circle, Honey I Shrunk The Kids and lots of Zero Times Zero…as well as more personal reports! With thanks to Jan for help with note-taking.
