Tom Hiddleston is made of magic. You know that, I know that, the world knows that. Much of this is being brought to the surface right now because of his recent press tour for Thor: The Dark World. And I’m pretty convinced it was orchestrated by some ancient benevolent gods specifically to make up for some of the other crap that goes down in the universe. This includes many a “Hey look at my new movie!” interview, every single one of which has left us fangirl!weeping in the general directions of our computer screens as we type all-caps phrases like “I JUST CAN’T” and “HAVE YOU SEEN??!”
The latest in these was an interview with Entertainment Weekly, in which he is asked to respond to the popularity of Loki — and in which Loki is referred to as a “sexy beast”:
Here are some of the many reasons we love him so far:
It has been mentioned in multiple interviews that Tom Hiddleston can (and does) quote Hamlet at length. This is evident from his portrayal of Thor’s Loki, as well as from the fact that he got the job from friend/colleague Kenneth Branagh, the most Shakespearean man to ever Shakespeare in a whole lotta years.
Hiddleston has been in stage productions like Othello and onscreen in BBC’s productions of Henry IV and Henry V. He’s also worked extensively with the Donmar Warehouse, where he will be playing the title character in Coriolanus soon. And have you seen the rehearsal photos from that? Because they’re…important.
Basically: He’s a thespian to the highest degree, and he will talk about art and language with you all through the day and night.
