Tom Hiddleston has a new interview with the Standard, talking about what it’s like playing a normal character in his other roles. He’s said in interviews that he’s excited about coming back as Loki for the third time, and also mentions that he’s excited to shoot with Joanna Hogg in her upcoming feature.
When talking about Hogg, the director that gave him his first big break in the low-budget film ‘Unrelated’, he says, “My film career started with her. I wanted to be part of the third.”
Hiddleston also talks about playing a vampire in ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ and he says, “I play someone incredibly normal. There’s a time in every Londoner’s life when you feel Soho, or the parks, or a certain social life, belongs to you, then it is taken over by the generation behind you. In the film, I’m part of the generation behind.”
Hiddleston has slowly been seeping into the mainstream over the past couple of years – first with his ingenious turn as Loki in the first Thor, and then with strong supporting roles in ‘War Horse’ and ‘Midnight in Paris’. Both War Horse and Midnight in Paris were nominated for Best Picture at the Academy awards, and show that Hiddleston has shrewd taste when it comes to the movies he stars in. It wouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see him nominated for his very own Oscar soon, but until then, we’ll have to make do with Loki.
