Loki star Tom Hiddleston reveals the most ‘profound’ moment of his career


‘It’s hard to describe the feeling of relief and gratitude we felt’: Tom Hiddleston reveals filming Loki in a pandemic bubble was the most ‘profound’ moment of his career

Tom Hiddleston has spoken out about the most profound moment of his career after filming Loki in a bubble with the rest of the cast during the coronavirus pandemic.

The actor, 41, who plays the title character in the Disney+ series, was forced to take time out from work when Covid-19 spread across the globe, forcing filming of the first series to pause when the cast and crew went into lockdown for five months.

He later returned to set to form a bubble with his fellow stars and crew long before a vaccination for the virus had been created, with the star saying the completion of the series under the circumstances was one of the most ‘meaningful’ moments of his career.

He told Gentleman’s Journal: ‘On the last day on set of Loki’s first season, after the very last shot, we all, without instruction, seemed to stand in a circle — with nowhere to go, with the job done, and clapped. 

‘It’s hard to describe the feeling of relief, of the gratitude we felt for each other, for every member of our cast and crew. 

‘Filming had been interrupted by the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic one third of the way into our planned schedule — we locked down for five months — and we restarted after that first hiatus to resume exactly where we had left off, and to finish the story.’

He went on to explain that the cast and crew worked in a bubble for 12 weeks, saying it was the only human contact most of them had at that time. 

He added: ‘We supported each other with a spirit, care and kindness in a way I have never seen before. ‘Whatever happens to this series’, I thought, ‘whichever way it goes, the making of it was meaningful. There is meaning in the doing’.’

Meanwhile, Tom says he’d love to do more theatre but is waiting to see what ‘transpires’.

He said he relishes in the rival of classical work, insisting he finds he ‘so rewarding’ and that he can find ‘genuine joy’ in the process.

Tom posed for a number of pictures as part of a shoot for the magazine, including one shot in which he gazed off into the distance out a window.

In another he cut a casual figure in a black jacket and jeans as he sat on the bonnet of a classic orange Audi.

It comes after Tom confirmed his engagement to his engagement to Zawe Ashton earlier this month.  

The Essex Serpent actor told in a new interview that he is ‘very happy’ about his upcoming nuptials to the Fresh Meat actress, 37.

The couple’s romance blossomed after they starred in the 2019 play Betrayal and has gone from strength to strength since – eventually leading to a proposal in March.

During a chat with the LA Times he confirmed he was set to wed the beauty but kept tight lipped about the romance, simply saying: ‘I’m very happy’ and nothing more.

Tom and Zawe previously set tongues wagging about a possible engagement as they appeared at the BAFTAs earlier this year, after which she was pictured wearing a huge diamond sparkler on her ring finger in a photo shared by host AJ Odudu

The couple were reportedly congratulated by industry friends at the BAFTAs – after Zawe hid her hand as she took to the red carpet in a pink cape dress.  

Zawe concealed her stunning diamond-encrusted ring from photographers on the red carpet, draping her stunning flowing pink gown over her hand. 

Tom, meanwhile, looked devilishly handsome in a black blazer and trousers, as he posed hand-in-hand with Zawe.

However, later in the ballroom of London’s Grosvenor Hotel the couple caught up with TV personality AJ who snapped a picture which showed the diamond ring.  

Zawe and Tom met while starring in the 2019 play Betrayal and have kept their relationship out of the spotlight ever since. 

Their play Betrayal followed a seven-year extramarital affair between two characters, Emma and Jerry, with the latter character being Emma’s husband Robert’s friend.

Tom played Robert in the play with Zawe starring as his on-stage wife Emma and Charlie playing Jerry.

The couple confirmed their romance during a steamy PDA-filled holiday at the beach in Ibiza in September last year before making their red carpet debut together at the Tony Awards in New York City.
