"I never dreamed I would be allowed to play a character like that. I’ve had a very pleasant, gentle English life, and I have blonde, curly hair. I’m stepping into these boots of the Norse God of Mischief, who is one of the great super-villains of the Marvel Universe. He’s a photo negative of who I am. He’s a character on such a big scale."
Tom Hiddleston on the joy of playing Loki, on Studio Q with Jian Ghomeshi.
