Career: In 2004 Matthew Vaughn’s ‘Layer Cake’ offer Hardy a chance to get noticed again. His career didn’t start going to the levels it could have and taking part in Sci-fi Channel film ‘Minotaur’ didn’t help things along. Tom considered to make unsuccessful films until 2008 where he got a supporting role in Guy Ritchie’s ‘RocknRolla’ before getting the role that most people consider his best to date ‘Bronson’. This performance opened doors that have put Tom where he is today.
