The Telegraph has published a new exclusive interview with Tom on their website. Read it below:
There is an electric atmosphere in the auditorium of the Donmar Warehouse – more befitting a rock concert than a Shakespearean tragedy – as the audience waits for a preview performance of Coriolanus to begin. Five years since he last appeared on this small stage as a little-known actor, Tom Hiddleston is returning as a bona fide film star.
At 32 Hiddleston has achieved the kind of success that most young actors can only dream of. His performance as
Captain Nicholls in Steven Spielberg’s 2011 adaptation of the National Theatre’s War Horse was by far the film’s most memorable. But it is as Loki in Marvel Comics’ blockbusting Thor franchise that Hiddleston has generated an obsessive following.
When he made a surprise appearance in character at the international Comic-Con convention in San Diego last summer, some members of the hysterical 7,000-strong crowd actually knelt in worship. At last count, his Twitter following was approaching a million.
Tom Hiddleston has gone from the theater to “Thor” and back again. The British actor has returned to his classical stage roots with an acclaimed starring role in William Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus.”
“Shakespeare led me to superheroes,” Hiddleston told Wednesday’s edition of the Evening Standard newspaper, as critics raved about his performance in the Bard’s blood-soaked tragedy at London’s Donmar Warehouse.
Hiddleston made a splash at the 250-seat venue in a 2008 production of “Othello” starring Chiwetel Ejiofor. Director Kenneth Branagh later cast him in the superhero film “Thor,” and he has gone on to star as the Norse hero’s evil brother Loki in three Marvel Studios movies. He also recently played a bohemian vampire alongside Tilda Swinton in Jim Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive.” He returns to the stage as the anti-hero of Shakespeare’s final tragedy. In some ways the character is the dark flipside of warrior-king Henry V — a role Hiddleston played in the BBC’s Shakespearean series “The Hollow Crown.”
