"You musn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling," Eames (Hardy) says in the 2010 blockbuster, Inception. It seems that Hardy has followed his character's advice of dreaming big with his career. Since the release of this story about thieves who break into the unconscious mind, Hardy has made a series of strong career choices.
Hardy impressed many for his work in Inception because he stood out in this cast of high-profile Oscar nominees and winners. The film stars Oscar winners Marion Cotillard and Michael Caine, alongside Academy Award nominees like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page. Lesser actors might not have been able to perform with so many well-known actors around but Hardy steals a few scenes and seems to having a blast along the way.
