Tom told The Hollywood Reporter that his new project The Crowded Room, which also stars Amanda Seyfried and Emmy Rossum, was a challenge.

“This show absolutely broke me in every way possible,” he said. “I just kept my head down. I dug my heels in, and I just tried my best.”

He added that he was intrigued by the chance to play a character that is “so misunderstood.” If you were unaware, the show pulls inspiration from real life and examines dissociative identity disorder. However, he reiterated that it’s not a true retelling.

“We definitely are telling a piece of fiction,” he said. “That said, there was a load of research that went into bringing this show to life: reading the book, watching the documentary, watching the film, speaking to experts. It was really important to us to tell this story in an authentic way, as well as a sensitive way.”

The first three episodes of The Crowded Room will premiere on Apple TV+ on June 9. After that new episodes will be unleashed weekly through July 28.

Earlier this year Tom revealed that he also celebrated one year of sobriety after filming the project.
