Tom Hardy puts in a powerhouse performance as both Ronnie and Reggie Kray, in biopic Legend. The actor talks about playing the notorious gangsters, his own “hard man” reputation and the odds on him being the next 007
Playing just one of the notorious gangster Kray brothers, who lorded it over London’s East End in a 20-year reign of violence and intimidation, is something most actors would find challenging enough.
But in Legend, the new biopic about the scandalous siblings, Tom Hardy has decided to take on the roles of both Reggie and Ronnie with no CGI trickery to help out.
Despite this seemingly impossible task, the 37-year-old insists he required no persuading at all to play both twins. “Absolutely none,” he says. “I wanted it. It was just a question of how I was going to get it.”
Perhaps what he calls the film’s “split dynamic” chimes with his own somewhat divided personality.
On the one hand, he’s the tattoo-covered Hollywood hard man who dropped out of drama school, battled addiction and received acclaim for his portrayal of the criminal Charles Bronson in a 2008 film.
But on the other, he’s the happily married dad who was raised as the only child of an artistic family in south-west London and who brings his pet pooch Woody to movie premieres.
He thinks his description as a Hollywood hard man is “nonsense”. He says: “Do you know what I think? If you play the bass in the band, you play the bass in the band, but I can drum too.”
Even so, rumour has it that Hardy preferred playing Ronnie, the psychotic, openly gay brother who was eventually certified insane, and spent most of his life at Broadmoor Hospital before dying of a heart attack in 1995.
“If I had to choose between the two, then yeah, there was a moment in the conversation where Brian wanted me to play Reg, ‘cause Reg was his lead. And me being me, well, it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t go for the other one immediately. But Ron is the firework in many ways.”
“I was a bit less confident in playing Reggie,” the actor admits. “I find straight leads really quite complicated, because they don’t do anything. Things happen to them and they respond to the environment. It’s quite ‘plod, plod, plod’ and kinda boring.”
But there was nothing routine about creating the movie as time and money restrictions meant there was no relying on technology to make shooting easier.
Hardy would start the day as whichever brother had the most screen time, then do a quick change at lunch to become the other.
“There was no CGI, we didn’t have the budget for it, so it was back to old-school tricks, split screen and talking to a tennis ball or Jacob [Tomuri, Hardy’s stunt double]. At the same time, you’ve got the rest of the cast who’ve got to deal with the fact we’ve got a split dynamic in the room, so it was kind of mathematical in a strange way.”
There’s also talk that the actor is the favourite to succeed Daniel Craig when he steps down from the role of James Bond – is there any truth in this?
“I wouldn’t say no,” he adds after a slight pause. “There’s been no serious conversation.”
Legend is in cinemas now.
