The trailer about the rough drama Taboo was released before 9 months. The excitement was even bigger knowing that Tom Hardy will play the main character.
The first episode of the TV mini-series is going on air on 10th January.
James Delaney, played by Tom Hardy is an adventurer that returns to London in 1814 after a decade spent in Africa. He finds out the mysterious legacy his father left him, and seeks vengeance for his father death.
Delaney find himself in a conflict with East India Company and at the same time plays a risky game between the nations of Britain and America.
The supporting cast also includes incredibly talented actors like: Leo Bill (Wilton); Oona Chaplin (Zilpha Geary); Richard Dixon (Pettifer); David Hayman (Brace); Michael Kelly (Dumbarton); Danny Ligairi (Martinez); Jonathan Pryce (Sir Stuart Strange) and many others.
Tom Hardy totally rocks out the early 1800s fashion completed with a top hat, but the tribe outfit also fits him. After being left for dead in Africa, he is back and ready to do whatever it takes to repay his father’s death.
The two Scandinavian directors Kristoffer Nyholm and Anders Engstrom made sure that the show has enough conspiracy, betrayal and murder as a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery.
