PHOTOS: David Tennant Supports His Son Ty At Tolkien Premiere


David Tennant joined his eldest son Ty at the premiere of his debut movie, Tolkien, in London this evening. 
Ty is playing the role of a young Christopher Wiseman in the eagerly awaited biopic of the Lord Of The Rings author. Tolkien explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the "fellowship" apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels. 
David spoke about Ty’s new career as an actor during promotion for his own series Camping earlier this year: 
“He's in a movie called Tolkien, which is coming out soon,” he revealed proudly. “It stars Nicholas Hoult and it's about JRR Tolkien and his chums during the First World War – Ty plays a younger version of one of those chums – and it's a fantastic first gig to have.  After that, we'll see how it goes.  Georgia and I had this fear when he went into it that if he was rubbish, would we be able to tell him? But as it turns out, he's incredible. Which was something of a relief!”

Georgia also showed her pride for Ty’s big screen debut, sharing an image of him on the film’s poster to her Instagram:

Tolkien is out in cinemas in the UK on 3rd May and in the USA on 10th May. 
Ty can also be seen in an episode of Casualty on Saturday 4th May on BBC One at 9.15pm.
