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.

- THE WIRE

ISLANDER review by Laurel Brauns

Some quite fine ensemble acting… Hildreth in particular is a revelation…

- NOW PLAYING MAGAZINE

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.

- 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.

I saw Hildreth onstage in The Invested. He's exceptionally intense and focused... a real pleasure to watch in action.

- BRETTE GOLDSTEIN

Casting Director, CSA (HELLO LONESOME)

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

- PAT McCORKLE

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

Broadway Theatre Director

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)

TH 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.

Award-Winning Writer/Director (CHILD OF GRACE, ISLANDER)
