Welcome to TOBIAS MENZIES ONLINE @ tobiasmenzies.org a website dedicated to Emmy Award Winning British actor Tobias Menzies. Perhaps best known for his roles as Edmure Tully in GAME OF THRONES and as Marcus Junius Brutus in HBO's ROME, Tobias came to the fore in a very notable way with his stunning portrayal of the dual characters of Frank Randall and his forefather the notorious Captain Jonathan Wolverton "Black Jack" Randall in the STARZ series OUTLANDER. Currently being seen as Prince Philip in THE CROWN, Tobias is making his mark on the world. Tobias' films include UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS, CASINO ROYALE, UNA, FORGET ME NOT, ATONEMENT, and FINDING NEVERLAND. Feel free to browse the site and to make this your premiere source for news on Tobias' career. This site as a strict NO CANDIDS policy.
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.
Tobias took part in SAG’s (Screen Actors Guild) Conversations at Home series where he discussed his role on THE CROWN as Prince Philip. What a charming interview with this amazing man. He was very animated and well-spoken on his craft and his co-star Olivia Coleman (Elizabeth). He’s so wonderful and easy to listen to. Thank you Tobias. He also revealed season four is not quite done.
Another episode of THE CROWN. This one is called Aberfan. This episode takes place in 1966 when the town of Aberfan in South Wales experienced a tragedy. With South Wales largely being a mining town, my dad who was born in Princetown, South Wales as a young child went to work with his father in the coal mines. Unfortunately that was more or less the staple of employment in that part of Britain. In October 1966 one of the spoil tips (a repository for waste from a coal mine) liquefied and sent half the mountain down in a black sluice into the town killing 154 people, 115 of which were children in a school. The disaster was amplified by the inaction Queen Elizabeth took getting to the scene of the disaster. While the episode does well to try to portray the Queen (Olivia Coleman) in a sympathetic way, for the most part it is well-known how absent of emotion both she and Philip are. The disaster at Aberfan is considered by Elizabeth as one of her failures as Queen. The other was the death of Princess Diana in how she failed to react sooner. Instead of the usual links to the screencaps in the gallery, I thought I’d include a mini documentary made by Netflix for the series. It’s excellent in encapsulating the disaster and the making of the episode. I will be including the text link though.

For some reason of which I’m not sure I had a hard time typing the name of this episode. It always came out rather wonky. Don’t know why. Here is the second post for today. Tobias in THE CROWN as Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. I’ll try to get these done in a fair amount of time, however, that will depend on my computer and real life.
I posted a poll on the Twitter account for this site and the result of it was for me to begin work on Tobias’ work on THE CROWN. So here is the first episode called Olding. Thank you to all who took part in the poll and for continuing to support Tobias and this site as you have. It does mean so much to me. Take care and be safe.
