Very often the relatives call Tom “his father’s mini-me”. Really, the actor and his dad look alike. Besides, they have common interests. Dave and Tom are both great singers. The only difference is that the Dunkirk actor considers making music just a way to relax and entertain himself. But for Dave that was his profession.

He earned his living as a music teacher and singer. It was he, who taught his son Tom to love and understand theater art, as he took the boy to am-dram musicals in their native Manchester.

Dave Glynn-Whitehead couldn’t play music during the pandemic, so he turned his face to art. He started drawing sketches of animals, which he sells through Instagram now.

In the play, he portrayed Shane, an anxious and evil character, who has a lot in common with his House of the Dragon’s Prince Aegon.

He formed the band “Sleep Walking Animals” and has already uploaded a number of its music videos on YouTube. But he makes music just for entertainment, not for money, as he told in his interview.

Tom’s other credits include the role in the epic film “The King”, where he acted opposite Timothée Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp. He acted as the young version of Caesar Augustus in the historical TV series “Domina”.
