Tom Hardy’s final tale on “CBeebies Bedtime Stories” will hit close to home for the actor.
Hardy, 39, has been wishing kids goodnight on the BBC program for children 6 and younger since last year. This time around, the “Mad Max: Fury Road” star will read the story Fleabag by Helen Stephens.
The book details the relationship between a young boy and his canine friend, a story all too familiar to the actor. Hardy found Woody, a stray, while filming “Lawless” in the States.
Hardy lost his beloved dog Woody earlier this year and vented his grief in a blog. The bedtime story was filmed with Woody before his passing and will air on National Dog Day on Aug. 26.
