Tom Hardy made his acting debut in Ridley Scott’s Black Hawk Down in 2001, and he was born Edward Thomas Hardy. But it was in the film Star Trek Nemesis, released in 2002, that he got his big break. Since then, the 43-year-old has gone from strength to strength, solidifying himself as a huge Hollywood actor. In movies like The Revenant, Dunkirk, and Venom, he has demonstrated his acting abilities. On film, Hardy has played a variety of roles, including the hero, anti-hero, and villain. He’s taken on challenging parts in the past and done an outstanding job portraying them. As per an article published by Pinkvilla.

1. Inception

Hardy plays Eames, a master forger and identity thief, in Christopher Nolan’s fantastical sci-fi thriller about a team of Dreamweaver hired to break and enter into a businessman’s subconscious, with a showboating context of sartorial splendor and the assured cunning of someone who’s already read the script and understands he’ll wake up in the good structure.

2. The Dark Knight Rises

Hardy constantly demonstrates the truth of the adage that deeds talk louder (or at least more intelligibly) than speech as the ruthless Bane of Batman’s existence.

3. The Revenant

Hardy is so rivetingly and irredeemably ferocious as John Fitzgerald, the brutish frontiersman who forsakes bear-mauled fellow trapper Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) and eventually tries to correct his “mistake” after Glass seemingly rises from the dead, that even moviegoers at home may be tempted to stand up and cheer when his character is force-fed just desserts.

4. Dunkirk

Hardy’s speech is distorted and his face is partly obscured by a mask — in this case, the oxygen mask of an RAF Spitfire bomber pilot on a WWII mission — when he reunites with “Dark Knight Rises” director Christopher Nolan.

5. Venom

Eddie Brock, a journalist with a chocolate-loving extraterrestrial alter-ego, is played by Tom Hardy.
