His Welsh connection was found by researchers on a Bravo TV show in New York called 'The Actors Studio' where an invited audience of drama students hear first hand what makes world class actors like Tom so successful.

James Lipton, the host makes a point of revealing what he considers important background information. In Tom's case Lipton thought it important enough to not only include the fact that Tom's family come from Flint but even went on to present him with a copy of the family court of arms.
