Tom McDonald was born in Salisbury, a cathedral city in Wiltshire. Never one to rest on his laurels, he went on to become a toddler, teenager and young adult. Having attained fluency in his native language and a penchant for baked goods, Mr. McDonald engorged both during spells with Salisbury Playhouse, Wiltshire County and the National Youth Theatre before being accepted at LAMDA at 18. Stage appearances since graduation include Twelfth Night and The Taming of the Shrew (Propeller, Old Vic and World Tour), The Rivals (Southwark Playhouse), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Propeller), Mock-Turtle Soup (Arcola), The Linden Tree (Orange Tree), The Emperor Jones (Gate Theatre), Soft Armour (Theatre Delicatessen) and Mother’s Ruin (Old Vic 24 Hour Plays). TV credits include The Shangri-La Project by Mark Ravenhill for Channel 4, The History of Prostitution for Sky One, and a strange McDonald's commercial (www.youtube.com) featuring a faux pas with an inflatable cactus, made exclusively for broadcast in Germany.
