Tom Hardy Bane
Tom Hardy, who brought Bane to life in Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, revealed that he based the character on a celebrity. Yes, in a real person.
There are certainly people who influence the lives of others. In cinema, there may be directors who mark the way actors and actresses work. In the same way, some artists become the source of inspiration for the style of others who follow them. However, it is not common for someone to base her character on another person, as it would be somewhat bizarre. However, this is the case of Tom Hardy.
The actor used the way of being of one of his directors to embody a character. This is Bane, villain in The Dark Knight: The Legend Rises. The interpreter claimed to have based Batman’s nemesis on Christopher Nolan .

Although it wasn’t planned that he would appear more, shortly after it was confirmed that Solomons would return to close the story of the ‘Peaky Blinders’ in the sixth season .
As explained by the creator of the series, Steven Knight , in an interview with ‘Metro’, the 44-year-old actor is adoring his character Solomons and didn’t want to miss the final fireworks (although it is true that later there will be a film that will put the final touch to the story). It was Hardy’s insistence that convinced Knight: “The plan changed, so to speak, because Tom loves his character.”
