The last time I met with Tom Hiddleston was in NYC at the Tribeca Film Festival for The Avengers. He was sweet and charming….he also caught my clumsy self when I fell head over heels. Which to this day is still the most embarressing moment of my life, yet a great story. I walked up to him after the interview to shake his hand and also talked about the last time we met and said, “You can fall again and I’ll catch you.” It took everything I had not to swoon right then! Here’s a bit from the awesome interview we had with him:
Q: Do you like playing a bad guy?
Tom: I love playing all kinds of roles, and I hope it doesn’t sound too pretentious but I always feel like human nature is like a piano and there are 88 keys and there are some white keys and some black keys and each character is a different chord on the piano. And I love that in the course of my life I will have played all 88 keys in lots of different ways.
So I’ll have played heroes, and villains, and princes and kings and warriors and beggars and thieves and lovers and fathers and wizards all of those things. So that’s it, for me that’s why I’m an actor, is I love studying people.
And Loki’s just a particular kind of, actually I think he’s a minor chord with a couple of black notes in there. I loved playing him. He’s the God of Mischief. Thor is the God of Thunder and Loki is the God of Mischief and his mischief is the thing that I love playing so much. His playfulness, his, uh, his sense of fun, and the challenge of course is to make him real, and vulnerable and complex
Q : How has Loki changed since we last saw him, has he reconciled with his dad, or…?
Tom: Um, [LAUGHS] certainly not with his dad. I think Loki’s very angry with his father still. Basically you find him in–– in the wake of what happened in the Avengers. He’s back and he’s in prison. If he could be wearing, you know, he should be wearing an Asgardian version of a kind of boiler suit and, he’s not in a good way.
He’s basically been written out of history, condemned to be forgotten, unseen and unheard and haunted by his demons for eternity. And I think he’s keeping himself sharp by reading a lot keeping his mind exercised. He’s not great at the long game, Loki, but he’s very good at improvising.
Tom Hiddleston is just a humble and charming man. I could talk with him all day. He is SUCH an amazing actor and I can see his career spanning for ages. In Thor: The Dark World he steals almost every scene he is in and you find yourself rooting for him more and more. After all, I am a member of #lokisladies
