The 39-year-old is back in Liverpool to film series four of the hit BBC drama
Hollywood star Tom Hardy was spotted on set in Liverpool as filming for series four of Peaky Blinders begins.
The actor was seen in period dress on Dublin Street in Vauxhall as he returned to his role as Londoner Alfie Solomons.
Hardy, 39, a fan favourite in the 1920s set BBC2 gangster drama, was whisked away from the set at just after 8pm on Tuesday.
Despite the hit show being set in Birmingham, much of the filming takes place in Liverpool.
Actor Cillian Murphy, who plays Thomas Shelby, was also in action this week for scenes filmed in Toxteth.
Kinmel Street, South Street, and Powis Street have been transformed into 1920s Birmingham, with retro-looking adverts placed on the side of buildings, and classic cars, horses and carts on the road.
The new series of Peaky Blinders, which follows the Shelby family as they expand their empire across the country, was confirmed last autumn.
Star Murphy revealed earlier this year that filming would begin this month.
He said at the time: “The success of it is down to really great writing.
“People in America love it, people in Australia love it, people in Poland love it – it’s mad.”
Series one to three included locations such as Seacombe Ferry Terminal in Wirral, Croxteth Hall and Stanley Dock.
Mad Dog Casting, the firm who provide extras for Peaky Blinders and other North West productions, has put out a casting call for anyone wanting to be an extra in similar programmes.
