It must be admitted that its first trailer had already quite impressed the fans of the comic strip from which the series is adapted. Promising, the series has indeed taken up the challenge of making it a faithful work but also an original creation thanks to the competition of neil gaiman in person who supervised the operations.

Who is Tom Sturridge, charismatic dream lord?
And if the success of The Sandman lies mainly in its story, the cast, and in particular the charisma of Tom Sturridge, there is also no doubt also for something. That’s why we decided to find out more about this particularly charming and sulky master of dreams.
If the face of the British actor is familiar to you, it is probably because you have already seen it in comedy “Good Morning England” where he interprets the role of Carl. Later, in 2012, he distinguished himself by playing alongside Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst in the road movie “On the road“, adapted from the novel by Jack Kerouac.
His filmography also has many successes such as “Song to Song” by Terence Malik or even the series “Irma Vep”. “The Sandman” comes to offer him the coveted main role of the sandman, alias Morpheus and propels his career already well underway. He was notably in the running for this role with Tom York (Poldark) and Colin Morgan (Merlin).
In terms of his private life, Tom Sturridge is the father of a little Marlowe from his relationship with the actress and model Sienna Miller from which he has been separated since 2015.

After watching the pilot #Sandman, I swim in full wait & see. The staging is far from doing its best, many choices are made to make the story more accessible, but the essential is there in the background and Tom Sturridge manages to play such a complicated role. pic.twitter.com/iNcqUwvN28

Honestly, it starts the adaptation of Sandman quite well. Reader who plays Morpheus is indeed an unbearable sulky handsome kid like in the comics.
