Tom Hiddleston went to the gym for six weeks to audition for Thor

Tom Hiddleston shares a little known fact – he once auditioned for the role of the Thunder God himself as opposed to his brother and nemesis Loki.  He says he went to extreme lengths to try to get the part, saying, “I have naturally curly blond hair, so they were thinking: ‘He’s over 6ft, can do the big Shakespeare talks and he’s blond.’ But I was too skinny so I went to the gym for six weeks, had five meals a day, gained three stone in muscle and completely changed my shape. A month later they said: ‘We’re not going to cast you as Thor but we’re so pleased with what you’ve done, we’d like to offer you the part of Loki.’ 

He also says Loki changes his life quite a bit, saying in an interview with Metro UK that , “I never would have expected in my wildest dreams to be cast as Loki. I’m not immediately identifiable as a kind of planet Earth-subjugating, autocratic villain and fascist. People who’d seen Cranford wouldn’t say: ‘Yeah, the guy from Cranford would be really great for this.’ He has expanded people’s perception of what I might be capable of doing.”

Tom Hiddleston is currently shooting Thor: Dark World (the sequel to Thor), which is being directed by Game of Thrones veteran Alan Taylor.
