When we think of Tom Hardy finding his voice, our minds go directly to his portrayal of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.
“I think that was actually the toughest thing,” Hardy told ET. “Normally, I like to get that sense of character with a vocal silhouette, and that was the toughest thing for me was to find Max's voice.”
Hardy’s character, and we promise not to spoil anything beyond this, spends much of the film in a silent attempt to keep to himself.
“Max hadn't spoken for many, many years. So it was, I think, synchronistic with character,” said Hardy.
We like the strong silent type anyway!
