WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Tom Mison stars as Icabod Crane in the new FOX show, Sleepy Hollow.

Want to get to know Tom better? Here are five things you may not know about Mison:

  1. He's really British. The accent is not part of the act. Mison comes to Wilmington from London.
  2. He was a star on stage first. Mison is well-known in the British theater scene, having been in more than 15 plays, including Hamlet.
  3. But this isn't his first time on screen. Mison starred in several TV shows in his native England. Most recently, he was on a show called Parade's End opposite Rebecca Hall.
  4. You may have first noticed him starring alongside Emily Blunt. He played her boyfriend in Salmon fishing in the Yemen. Coincidentally, Blunt also filmed a movie in Wilmington, Arthur Newman.
  5. But that's not Mison's only Wilmington connection. When FOX Wilmington talked to him recently, we asked him if he had ever heard of Wilmington before coming here. His answer was yes. He explained his best friend in London is married to a man who once worked at Circa in downtown Wilmington.
