Thomas Hudson

TOM ON BAZ: "Baz is a bit of a mysterious character," Tom says. "He's had a shocking home life and more than often has had to play dad to his younger sister, Annie, as well as trying to fend for himself. He's fiercely protective of his family background."

"I particularly enjoyed the scenes where Baz's dad was sectioned and taken away by ambulance. It's very powerful stuff and typically Grange Hill." Tom trained at Manchester's Laine-Johnson Theatre school which has produced other famous names such as Tina O'Brien and Lisa Riley.

FAMILY: Tom lives in Worsely, near Manchester with his mum Margaret and younger brother Anton, a promising gymnast who trains with the Central Manchester Institute of Gymnastics. Mum comes from Swinford, Ireland, and Tom visits the Emerald Isle when he can!

AMBITIONS: Tom hopes Grange Hill will be his big break. “I have always wanted to be in Coronation Street because I always watched it with my mum when I young,” Tom said. “That would be really good.”
