THE COL­LEGE CREW

Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - PROFILE -

So­cial as­cent started early thanks to a pri­vate ed­u­ca­tion at Abing­don school along­side the mem­bers of Ra­dio­head, who Tom drafted in for a charity event in 2004. At Cam­bridge Univer­sity, he formed a close friend­ship with the fu­ture James Bond di­rec­tor Sam Men­des, who cast him in sev­eral plays along­side so­cial an­thro­pol­ogy stu­dent Nick Clegg. Tom and the for­mer Bri­tish deputy PM starred to­gether in Sam’s 1988 ver­sion of Cyrano de Berg­erac and re­main friends (they even share a god­child).
