He has said:

When people ask me where I’m from and I say Wales, nobody knows where it is. It really makes my blood boil!… I do feel very Welsh. My parents aren’t actually Welsh – my Dad’s Irish and my Mum’s English – but growing up in Wales and growing up in that culture, it’s so rich, that it just penetrates every single fibre of you… There’s a certain outlook in Wales, it’s got like a steely humility which I’m very proud of. I think the Welsh can be passionate and humble at the same time, and very generous.

Tom’s maternal grandfather’s surname is White.
