Tom Hiddleston feels that acting in theatre is more challenging and fulfilling than acting in films.
In an interview with WENN, he says, "I do think that theatre is the actors' medium ultimately. I love working in film, which is the directors' medium most of all. An actor is an instrument in the director's orchestra but the director is conducting and playing and composing the tune. Whereas on stage there's something so thrilling about the direct and live contact and complicity with an audience... you have this unique chemistry and there's no hiding place."
He adds that he’s looking for a theater project to return to after filming the next couple of films on his slate. He says, "I'm quite excited, I'm actively reading plays at the moment to try to find something interesting and different that I could do. I also think it would be nice, I need to test myself in that arena again."
Hiddleston has previously been involved in critically acclaimed theater productions such as a London production of ‘Othello’ and a West End revival of Anton Chekhov’s ‘Ivanov’. There’s no doubt that if he were to go back to theater, he would once again thrill audiences and critics alike.
