Netflix’s White Stork Starring Tom Hiddleston Is Greenlit + Casting Now in the UK

Netflix’s White Stork Starring Tom Hiddleston Is Greenlit + Casting Now in the UK

New series for Tom:

Greenlit means a project is officially a go, so all you have to do is follow these leads to stay up to date. You never know where you’ll find an opportunity to land an audition.

White Stork
Tom Hiddleston is to star in Netflix’s upcoming thriller White Stork, following an aspiring politician who tries to keep his past a secret while running for a seat in Parliament. Shooting begins this summer in London for all 10 episodes, with Kristoffer Nyholm (Taboo) directing. Casting director Gary Davy is attached and casting now.

British production company Eleven is behind the new series. It’s not their first collaboration with Netflix – the firm is also behind the streamer’s hit Sex Education, but it all forms part of a major upswing in Netflix’s UK operations including a new deal with Equity for actors and a partnership with BAFTA to sponsor the Breakthrough Brits as evidenced by their huge new production base at Shepperton Studios. All of which is, of course, great news for actors.

(Thor: Ragnarok) Tom On the Transformation Of Loki

(Thor: Ragnarok) Tom On the Transformation Of Loki

Check out this interesting interview with Tom, posted by Collider, discussing coming back to the Marvel universe as Loki after a hiatus, and the evolution of the character.

At the end of Thor: The Dark World, Loki’s got everything he ever wanted.  How has it gone for him since?

You’ll have to wait and see. That question is answered in this film, so I’m loath to tell you because I think it’s surprising and fun.  But yeah, you’re right.  He finished Thor: The Dark World on the throne and it’s taken awhile for anyone to catch on…

Has Loki changed at all?

Yes, but that’s in his nature. He’s a mercurial spirit, and the minute you try to define him, he changes shape. Events in Ragnarok do try and inspire him to change forever… The Goddess of Death shows up, and the stakes are high for everybody, so Loki, perhaps more than ever, is challenged to define himself in the face of that threat.

Now that Thor: Ragnarok’s release is coming closer, Tom has started to participate in various interviews, including those done while filming. Below is a snippet of the interview by Comic Book, discussing the relationship between the two brothers.

“I’ve said this about Loki before, but the opposite of love is not hate but indifference. The idea that Thor might be indifferent to Loki is troubling for him because a defining feature of his character is, ‘I don’t belong in the family; my brother doesn’t love me; I hate my brother,’” Hiddleston revealed.

While at Comic Con, the cast of Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther took part in a Marvel family photoshoot. Below is a snippet of the accompanying article:

Backstage at Comic-Con, THR captured Cate Blanchett, Michael B. Jordan, Mark Ruffalo and more in the first-ever star-studded portrait of the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

About 30 minutes before the stars of Disney’s and Marvel’s Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok took to the Hall H stage at Comic-Con on Saturday, the worlds of Asgard and Wakanda collided backstage for the first-ever Marvel family photo of the two casts.

Nineteen members of the Marvel universe — led by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige — posed for The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive portrait backstage just moments before the studio’s presentation. From the moment they arrived, the room was full of laughter and hugs, as many of the actors were reuniting with their casts for the first time in months.

Article On Tom Taking A Year Off and Making Movies

Recently Tom did an interview with Courier mail, and discussed the making off movies, including Kong: Skull Island:

A lot of you were having issues accessing this article so I posted it below. 

WHEN he flew into Australia in January of last year, headed for the Gold Coast Hinterland where Mt Tamborine would double for a mysterious slice of the South Pacific in Kong: Skull Island, Tom Hiddleston was given a full safety briefing.

“Red-bellied black snakes, brown snakes, funnel-web spiders …” he recounts.

He  also talked about 2017 being a year of rest, after working consistently the past number of years:

What’s not so surprising now is, besides seeing Kong and Ragnarok out into the world, Hiddleston is planning to take much of 2017 off.

“I’m taking a bit of a breather, because I’ve been running quite hard for five or six years and I just need to check in with stuff at home,” he says.

The last six years have been undeniably huge for 36-year-old Hiddleston.

Regular work on British TV and stage switched gear into movie stardom via his much-loved Marvel role as Thor’s mischief-making brother Loki, backed up by great performances in The Deep Blue Sea, War Horse, Only Lovers Left Alive, Crimson Peak, TV’s The Hollow Crown and miniseries The Night Manager (the latter scoring him a statuette at last month’s Golden Globes).
