Ryan Eggold in Australia for Melbourne Cup

Ryan Eggold, who plays Liz Keen‟s deceptive ex-husband Tom in hit US drama The Blacklist , will be Seven‟s special guest at the 2014 Emirates Melbourne Cup tomorrow.

The 30-year-old actor will spend Cup Day enjoying the German-themed Emirates marquee in the Birdcage, then travel to Sydney for press duties for The Blacklist.

Commenting, Eggold said: “I’ve never been to Australia and jumped at the opportunity to go because it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to see. I’ve met many an Aussie, heard many beautiful things and am excited to see this part of the world.”

In last season‟s cliffhanger, with the knowledge of his deception to Liz (Megan Boone) exposed, it was revealed that Tom has a connection to Raymond “Red” Reddington‟s (James Spader) nemesis Berlin (Peter Stormare). In a standoff with Red, Tom holds Liz at gunpoint. In a struggle, Liz shoots Tom dead… or rather, assumed dead because at the end of the season finale, Tom‟s body is nowhere to be found.

Tom‟s fate is revealed in tonight‟s episode of The Blacklist which airs at 8;40 PM on Seven
