John has very fond memories of his multiple visits to the set of Legend and getting to meet Tom on multiple occasions.
I remember phoning him up in a state of hysteria when I heard they'd had the opportunity to meet and my grandfather described him as a 'true gentleman' and how impressed he was with what he'd seen so far of Hardy in action. Am I still jealous 5 years later? You bet.
What do you all think of Tom Hardy as both Ronnie and Reggie Kray? Are you excited to see him take on the role of another infamous gangster? Join the club!
As always, if you fancy some further reading and if you want to learn just how good Tom Hardy was, and what wasn't included in the film, why not read John's follow-up to The Profession of Violence - The Cult of Violence?
