Tom Hardy Reads Us a Bedtime Story

Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight RisesPeaky Blinders, Taboo), has been a frequenter to CBeebies as a bedtime story reader. CBeebies is a children’s television network on BBC, comparable to the American equivalent, PBS. On Valentine’s Day, Hardy returned to the segment Bedtime Stories, to give us a sultry reading of The Cloudspotter by Tom McGlaughlin.

According to Digital Spy, “The Cloudspotter is all about the power of imagination and the importance of friendship, and it’s fair to say Tom’s reading went down a treat with viewers.” 

Unfortunately, the entire video is only available in the UK, but you can watch the ending if you’re not in the range of BBC’s iPlayer. 

This one has a lot of views…

Here’s what some people had to say about the video:
