Interview: Pirate Radio's Tom Sturridge
In the US, most people know Tom Sturridge as Robert Pattinsonís best pal. Heís had small roles in Vanity Fair and Being Julia, but beyond being by his vampire buddyís side in tabloid photos, is widely unknown. Itís time you get to know Tom a little better because itís his turn to prevail on the big screen, as a pirate.
In Pirate Radio Tom plays Carl, a kid whoís expelled from school and forced to work with his godfather. Lucky for him, his godfather is Quentin (Bill Nighy), the owner of Radio Rock, the ship responsible for bringing millions in Britain the music the government restricts.
Check out what Tom told me about getting his role, being naked in a bathroom with Nick Frost and his hopes to bring the play Punk Rock, for which he was just nominated for the Evening Standard Award for Outstanding Newcomer, to the US.
