Tom Natsworthy quotes from the Mortal Engines film

Tom Natsworthy is the main character, a fifteen-year-old orphan of the Mortal Engines book and film series. He is a third class apprentice in the Guild of Historians, which frankly means he's supposed to live a boring life.

He witnesses an attempted assassination of Thaddeus Valentine by Hester Shaw which leads to his being cast off from the city of London, where he meets forges a relationship with Hester, at which point his adventure really begins.

Writer Philip Reeve says the inspiration for Tom's name came from a map "I sort of collect interesting sounding words and save them up until I need a name for a character. ‘Natsworthy’ is a place on Dartmoor, just up the road from where I live".

In the Christian Rivers directed film, Tom Natsworthy is played by Rob Sheehan and his opposite Hester Shaw is played by Hera Hilmar.


"Hey, watch out!" Tom Natsworthy's warning shout to Valentine as Hester's about to stab him.

"This weapon could wipe out the largest city in the blink of an eye!"

"Tom Natsworthy: See, I said you'd come back for me.
Hester Shaw: Shut up and run."

"Tom Natsworthy: What are they hunting?
Hester Shaw: Us"
