An intelligent and compelling drama... Hildreth infuses Eben Cole with much neediness...
- THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
ISLANDER review by Kirk Honeycutt
Thomas Hildreth's deeply felt performance as a prodigal ex-con… Hildreth’s Eben emerges as a figure of innate decency, quiet resolve and deep emotional reserves.
ISLANDER review by Justin Chang
Hildreth portrays Cole so authentically that one is left thinking no other person could have fit the role.

ISLANDER review by Laurel Brauns
Some quite fine ensemble acting… Hildreth in particular is a revelation…

ISLANDER review by Brent Simon
Beautifully played… Hildreth is intense and deep. His elusiveness is seductive… He has that rare gift of being still enough to communicate with the camera and grand enough to send his life force out into the far reaches of his audience.
ISLANDER review by Arleen Lorrance
Thomas Hildreth’s performance is strong, breathing life into this pivotal role.
- PAST THE POPCORN
ISLANDER review by Michael Brunk
Hildreth’s confidence creates the perfect backdrop for the subtle, never overwrought work of director Ian McCrudden.

THE INVESTED review by Larry Litt
I saw Hildreth onstage in The Invested. He's exceptionally intense and focused... a real pleasure to watch in action.

Thomas Hildreth is a very strong and versatile actor. He shines on both stage and screen, and he has my highest recommendation and support.

Artios/Emmy Award-Nominated Casting Director (CALIFORNICATION, DIE HARD 3, SECRET WINDOW)
I directed Thomas in The American Clock (Arthur Miller world premiere for WTF). He's a very interesting actor and has my recommendation.
- AUSTIN PENDLETON

I worked with Thomas on Islander. He's a very compelling, very unique actor. I look forward to seeing more of his work.
- PHILIP BAKER HALL
Multi Award-Winning Actor (MAGNOLIA, HARD EIGHT)
I don’t know why Thomas isn’t a star by now.
- TED LEVINE
Actor (SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, MONK, THE BRIDGE)
I worked with Thomas on Islander. He is very professional and a real pleasure to work with. He’s a wonderful actor.
- LARRY PINE
Actor (HOUSE OF CARDS, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL)
With a range from a young Powers Boothe or Christopher Walken but much more handsome, Thomas has the goods. Why is he not a star?
- CARYN WEST
BACKSTAGE West & East’s “The Best Audition Coaches”
Thomas Hildreth acts with rare focus, intensity and emotional truth. He has a wonderful capacity to avoid clichés and a knack for putting his own unique stamp on his characters.
- RON CANADA
Award-Winning Actor (CINDERELLA MAN, LONE STAR, THE WEST WING)
Thomas is a gutsy actor. He’s a heavy and he’s an artist. Don’t be confused by his leading man looks. What you see is so much less than what you get.
