A month ago in an interview regarding his participation at Eurovision 2021 Tom said “I would love to, but it depends on a lot of things.” it seems like the projects on which he will be working are taking him a lot of time and prevent him to take part at Eurovision he mentioned some of them: “I have a film by Nicolas Cuche which will be released this summer and which is called” Pourris gâtés “with Gérard Jugnot, Camille Lou. There is the magnificent film by Julien Rambaldi,” C’est la vie “, a family comedy “, season 2 of “Infidèles”on TF1 with Claire Keim” and more.
