Be still your beating heart… High-tech Tom Hardy figure sees Madame Tussauds London put the heartbeat in heartthrob
12th February 2018
Not content with expertly recreating the dreamy star’s rugged features, the world-famous attraction has brought the figure to life in time for guests to grab a hot date with Tom on the most romantic day of the year. Arriving on 14 February, The Revenant and Legend star’s new figure is the first to combine technology that will make guests feel like they are sat with their red-blooded Hollywood beau.
Looking date-ready, sporting his famous tattoos, perfectly groomed facial hair and dressed to impress in a dapper blue suit, Tom will invite excited guests to nestle beside him on his stylish leather sofa. As if the beating heart wasn’t enough to convince guests their Valentine’s dream has come true, keen fans will also spot a raven pin on the figure’s waistcoat – a nod to Tom’s ‘raven clan’ – and his uniquely curved little finger, reportedly the result of an old injury.
Upping the charm-factor, the famous dog lover’s figure went through a rigorous review process ahead of its Valentine’s Day arrival. Furry friends, including reps from a charity close to the star’s heart, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, gave a special seal of approval as they nuzzled beside the warm-hearted figure.
Edward Fuller, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: “People often dream of cuddling up to their favourite celebrities and Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to gift the ever-popular Tom Hardy to our guests.
“We’ve a long heritage of bringing guests up close to their favourite stars. For 2018 we’ve upped our game and brought in technology that takes this experience to the next level, raising temperatures and literally putting the heart in heartthrob.”
