Q: Can viewers expect some big explosive reveals in the upcoming episodes?
Tom Hiddleston: The ambition of this series was so exciting for me because I have played this character for a long time. I was quite keen not to repeat what we had done in the past and let that live and take it further. It just gets bigger and better.
Q: We have seen Loki’s character arc from a mischievous god to a very caring brother. And now that Loki’s events take place after the first avenger. How was your experience of getting back to the character of phase one Loki?
Tom Hiddleston: It was interesting and was sort of like a time travel all by itself. Going back and putting on the costume I wore back in 2011. It was the same clothes and its strange to go back to a fork in the road and Loki goes one way and that Loki does not know the things that the audience know. So, it is interesting to play a character who has less information about his own life than the audience do. I found that interesting.
Q: I love the comic timing you have, and you share this banter with everybody onscreen. Apart from your brother Thor i.e., Chris Hemsworth which is that one avenger you would like to have more screen time with if you had to?
Tom Hiddleston: Gosh, there are so many Avengers. I think The Winter soldier maybe, with Sebastian Stan. Maybe somebody from Wakanda since Loki has never met anybody from there so that would be interesting. I think probably they would look down at him and think he is pathetic. So yeah! Some of the characters like Danai Gurira’s character, Dr. Strange. I feel it would be interesting for Loki and Spider Man to meet because then you have ‘TH’ and the other ‘TH’ and whatever conversation they have will be cool.
Q: How was your experience with Owen Wilson, its already evident your chemistry with him is too good in the episodes? How was it bringing him to MCU, and you were the one with him, how was it?
Tom Hiddleston: Owen is just fantastic. What I love about the character, Mobius he plays is that all the tricks that Loki uses to manipulate people do not work with Mobius. So mobius has this curiosity and detachment because he kind of loves Loki but Loki does not want that. Owen himself is so playful, so smart, and so clever. He is such a brilliant actor, and we had a really good time
Q: Do you have a message for all the Indian fans who love you and are watching Loki right now?
