Tom Hiddleston first appeared on TV in 2001’s Nicholas Nickleby. After studying at RADA, he was almost immediately cast in first-time filmmaker Joanna Hogg’s Unrelated. Since then, Tom has taken on several theatre roles, being nominated for the 2006 Ian Charleson Award and receiving the Best Newcomer Olivier in 2008 for Cymbeline as well as being nominated for his work in Othello the same year. His work on TV includes Miss Austen Regrets, Wallander, Return to Cranford and most recently Prince Hal in Henry IV Parts 1 & 2 and the title role in Henry V. 2011 saw Tom appear in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, Steven Speilberg’s War Horse and Terence Davies’ The Deep Blue Sea. Tom is perhaps best-known for his role as the villain Loki in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, a role he reprised in The Avengers. This year Tom was nominated for a BAFTA Rising Star Award and an Evening Standard Best Actor award for his role in Archipelago, and won Best Male Newcomer for his role in Thor at the Empire Awards. Upcoming projects include Only Lovers Left Alive, Thor: The Dark World and a cameo role in the as-yet unnamed “London Project” by Joanna Hogg.
