Tom Glynn-Carney is a British actor and musician. He is known for his roles in the films Dunkirk, Tolkien, The King (2019), and Rialto, and on television’s The Last Post, Doing Money, House of the Dragon, SAS: Rogue Heroes, and Mayflies. He is the lead singer of indie band Sleep Walking Animals.
While the names Glynn and Carney are often Irish, Tom has said, referring to his role in the play Ferryman, 2017:
My character, Sean, is so hardcore about being Irish and Republican and “what’s ours is ours and what’s theirs is theirs”, so for me to be an Englishman playing that role is a little bit full-on. I’m from Salford and I don’t have any immediate Irish connection. It took me a long time to master the accent and I wouldn’t say it’s flawless now.
Tom’s paternal grandparents likely are John Whitehead and Josephine Carney.
Tom’s maternal grandfather’s surname was Glynn.
