Biography
On graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Hiddleston won his first film role as Oakley in Joanna Hogg’s award-winning first feature, Unrelated, shot on location in Tuscany, Italy. He is due to appear in the leading role of Edward in Joanna Hogg's recently completed second feature, Archipelago. He has also had leading roles in Declan Donnellan's company Cheek by Jowl's productions The Changeling (in which he played Alsemero and for which he received an Ian Charleson Awards 2007 Nomenation), and Cymbeline (Posthumus Leonatus & Cloten), for which he won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Newcomer 2008, notably being up against himself in the same category for his portrayal of Cassio in the Donmar Warehouse Othello.
His Donmar Warehouse credits include Cassio in Michael Grandage's production of Shakespeare's Othello alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ewan McGregor to much critical acclaim and later Lvov in their West End revival of Chekhov's Ivanov. These two roles earned him the Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers' Choice Awards for Best Supporting Actor 2008.
His TV credits include Magnus Martinsson in the BBC detective drama Wallander, Bill Hazledine in Suburban Shootout, John Plumptre in the BBC costume drama TV film Miss Austen Regrets and William Buxton in the Christmas edition of BBC costume drama series Cranford.
He will portray Loki, Thor's brother, in the 2011 Marvel Studios feature film Thor directed by Kenneth Branagh, whom he has worked with before on Ivanov and Wallander. He also auditioned and screen-tested for the role of Thor, even going on a strict diet and putting on three and a half stone in muscle, but Branagh decided he was more suitable for the role of Loki, Thor's half-brother.
In 2011, he is also set to appear in Midnight in Paris, written and directed by Woody Allen. In June 2010 it was announced that Hiddleston had been cast in the role of Captain Nichols in War Horse, a film based on the 1982 novel by Michael Morpurgo, and is due to star in upcoming movie The Deep Blue Sea, based on the 1952 play by Terence Rattigan, alongside Rachel Weisz and Simon Russell Beale. He will reprise his role as Loki in The Avengers, to be released 4 May 2012 in 3-D.
