In an interview with Metro, Tom credited his role as a father to son Louis with saving him from a life of addiction.

"I had no idea how to handle the industry, to interact with producers, executive producers, studios… I was 24 – punching above my weight. And it’s taken being someone’s dad, being divorced, going to rehab, having mortgages, playing different characters, doing theatre, waiting and then it not happening. And then doing rather well at something, enjoying my character work, but it not being a huge amount of money."
