I’ve been contacted through the website as well as by personal email there is an error in one of the posts I made. In this post: Tobias Attends The Munich Special Screening of “The Edge of War”, I erroenously stated Tobias actually was in Munich attending the event. The title should have been “Tobias Attends The Special Screening of Munich: The Edge of War”. As fluid as websites are, it would be impossible for me to change the original post in any way as it would unlink all the social media accounts the site is attached to. Meaning, all links to that post would be broken and not available via the original posted link. Therefore as an editorial decision and the WEBMASTER of this site, I’ve decided to NOT correct the original post instead opting for this explanation. To the person who keeps contacting me, please stop. I heard you loud and clear and would appreciate your not harping on the error. This is the last that will be said on it. Again, I cannot or will not change the original post as it would screw up the original links posted to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Various sources are saying Tobias has been cast to star in a new limited series called MANHUNT where he will play the part of EDWARD STANTON. The series is about the manhunt for John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of Abraham Lincoln. Great news for Tobias. More below.
Tobias Menzies Will Star in a New Series About the Hunt For Abraham Lincoln’s Assassin
Menzies will play Edwin Stanton, Lincoln’s war secretary who became obsessed with tracking down the president’s killer.
Tobias Menzies will star in a new miniseries about the aftermath of President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. The actor, best known for playing Prince Philip in the last two seasons of The Crown and both Blackjack and Frank Randall in early seasons of Outlander, will play Edward Stanton in the Apple TV+ series, which is titled Manhunt.
Stanton was Lincoln’s war secretary and close friend. Following the president’s death, per a summary cited by Deadline, Stanton was driven almost mad by his obsession with catching assassin John Wilkes Booth, and his determination to preserve and protect Lincoln’s legacy. The project is described as part historical fiction, part conspiracy thriller, and will be directed by Carl Franklin (Mindhunter).
Deadline also reports that the series will feature a number of Black historical figures who were involved both with the manhunt and with Booth’s escape. These figures include Mary Simms, a former slave who gave Booth safe harbor while he was on the run.
Casting for other roles, including Booth, Simms, and Lincoln, is yet to be announced.
Booth, an actor and Confederate sympathizer, assassinated President Lincoln on the evening of April 14, 1865, just five days after the end of the Civil War. The subsequent manhunt for Booth was one of the largest in history, with some 10,000 federal troops and detectives assigned to search for him. He was finally apprehended in Virginia twelve days after the killing, and killed during a standoff with sergeants.

A new event for Tobias. Here he attends a special screening of the film “The Edge of War” in Munich.
Tobias attended three events in the last week. One of them is a premiere with his THE CROWN co-star, Olivia Coleman. The other is the European premiere of Belfast, a film starring his OUTLANDER co-star Caitriona Balfe. My guess he was there for Caitriona. I’m posting these in one post.
Some new images for Tobias. He attends the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards – Red Carpet Arrivals. Enjoy.
Tobias’ series THE TERROR is getting the full court release on home media. According to Horror Cult Films, it is scheduled to be released on 03 May, 2021 on Acorn Media. In all actuality I thought it was already available through Amazon. There’s no word as to whether there will be any extras, but I’ll keep an eye out for that and box art.
Critically-Acclaimed Horror Drama Series THE TERROR To Receive Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital Release
Critically-acclaimed horror television series THE TERROR is set to receive Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital release later on this Spring.
Exec-produced by Ridley Scott, horror-period-drama The Terror features a fantastic line-up of British acting greats including BAFTA® winner Jared Harris (Chernobyl, The Crown) and Golden Globe® nominee Tobias Menzies (The Crown, Game of Thrones), as the crew of a real life Royal Naval expedition in 1847 that ventures deep into the Arctic.
Based on Dan Simmons’ best-selling novel, the 10-part series has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 93%, and has been lauded as ‘A fascinating step forward for the survival-horror genre…genius’ (The Atlantic).
1847, the crew of a real life Royal Naval expedition led by three captains, Sir John Franklin (Ciaran Hinds – Game of Thrones, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Francis Crozier (Harris) and James Fitzjames (Menzies), is sent to find the Arctic’s fabled treacherous Northwest Passage, but instead discovers a monstrous polar bear-like predator, a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival.
However, it soon becomes clear that that’s just the beginning of their troubles. As things worsen and civilised behaviour disintegrates in favour of survival at any cost, the crew must simultaneously battle the elements, the supernatural and eventually – themselves. The captains make contact with a mute Inuit woman, Lady Silence (Nive Nielsen – The New World, Togo), who lives as an outcast from her tribe but still follows their old religion…can they trust her to help them, or will she only add to The Terror?
Following its run on BBC Two, this gripping thrille

On behalf of TOBIAS MENZIES ONLINE I’d like to wish Tobias a very happy birthday. Hoping you have an amazing day with some good wine, then some more good wine. Take care dear man and have fun.
I was able to find some new additions to Tobias’ 03/02/2020 – “The Crown” Set Visit album in the gallery. There are twelve new images added. Please feel free to go take a look.
Now about updates to the site. I’m sorry they’ve been few and far between, but to let you know I suffer from migraine headaches and with the stress of the COVID-19 and other issues they’ve been on the uptick. I’ve had to get far more sleep than usual to be able to cope with them. The other issue I’ve been having are computer problems. All-in-all it’s been a pain in the you-know-where as far as trying to figure these things out. They too have added to my migraine pain. So please forgive the lack of updates. I’m trying to organize some things in hopes of getting the rest of Tobias’ THE CROWN done before season two drops in November. The other thing I’m working on is trying to get my first fiction novel written. I’m attempting to try to organize my time a little better to get all these things done. I’m also still in the process of trying to get my Sam Heughan site built. That one is taking longer than I had anticipated. Thanks for your understanding.
