  Summary  

Thomas Sidney Jerome "Tom" Sturridge is an English actor best known for his work in Being Julia, Like Minds, and The Boat That Rocked. As of September 2010, he was filming a role in Walter Salles's highly anticipated film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road.

  Biography  

 personal life
Sturridge was born in Lambeth, London, the son of director Charles Sturridge and actress Phoebe Nicholls, and a grandson of actor Anthony Nicholls and actress Faith Kent (née Heaslip). His maternal great-grandfather was photographer Horace Nicholls.

Sturridge was educated at The Harrodian School and at Winchester College, but he quit before sitting his A levels. The eldest of three children, he has two younger siblings, brother Arthur and sister Matilda, both of whom followed him into theatre arts. Matilda Sturridge is presently an actress, and Arthur was an original cast member of School of Comedy, which has aired on E-4 after finding success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In 2011 Tom Sturridge began dating actress Sienna Miller

 career
Sturridge began as a child actor and he was in the 1996 television adaptation of Gulliver's Travels, directed by his father and co-starring his mother. He reemerged in 2004 with Vanity Fair and Being Julia. In 2005 he played William Herbert, 3rd Earl of Pembroke in BBC4's A Waste of Shame.

In 2006, he played the role of Nigel in the psychological thriller Like Minds, also known by the title of Murderous Intent. It tells the story of two boys, Alex and Nigel, placed together as roommates, much to Alex's objections. Alex is horrified and yet fascinated with the ritual-influenced deaths that begin to occur around them, and when Nigel himself is murdered, Alex is blamed.

He was originally cast as the lead in the sci-fi trilogy Jumper. However, two months into production, New Regency and 20th Century Fox, fearing the gamble of spending over $100 million on a movie starring an unknown actor, replaced him with the "more prominent" Hayden Christensen.

In 2009, he appeared as Carl, one of the lead roles in the Richard Curtis comedy, The Boat That Rocked, alongside Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifans and Philip Seymour Hoffman. In September, 2009, he made his stage debut in Punk Rock, a then newly-dramatised play by Simon Stephens at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre, appearing as a character loosely modeled after the teenage killers at Columbine High School. For that performance, he was nominated for Most Outstanding Newcomer in the 2009 Evening Standard Awards, and won the 2009 Critics' Circle Theatre Award in that same category.

He appeared alongside Rachel Bilson, who co-starred in Jumper, in the forthcoming indie-romance, Waiting for Forever.

As of September 2010, he was filming a role in Walter Salles's highly anticipated film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road.
