What has Tom said about White Lines?

Opening up about his White Lines character, Tom told the Evening Standard: "He’s a real juxtaposition of a character. He has drive and ambition to be a superstar, but he’s also a really damaged human being. I read him as the human embodiment of an ecstasy pill."

He also spoke about going out partying with the cast while filming, adding: "I’m not very disciplined. I’d go for one drink and then it’ll cut to 6am and I’m left wondering what’s happened. The extras on set would party with abandon, and then all go out after shooting.

"[The cast] would find themselves heading to the clubs at 2am after dinner at midnight. Let’s just say the summer of filming was hazy."
