Tom has had huge success over the years

Tom is perhaps best known for his roles in Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, Inception and Legend. Meanwhile, away from film, the actor is also beloved for his role in popular period drama, Peaky Blinders, and many are hoping he could return to the small screen for the sixth and final season of the BBC show.

His character, Alfie Solomons, was the rival of Cillian Murphy's Tommy Shelby, and first appeared in series two. After he made an appearance in series five – much to the surprise of viewers who presumed him dead – fans are desperate to know if Alfie will come back.

Although it's not yet confirmed, many online have their theories about what might happen. One fan wrote on Reddit: "I doubt Alfie will return in a large capacity in season six but he will have a presence that will be felt."
