Male on Monday: Tom Hiddleston

PHS Editor Michelle Styles looks at  British Actor Tom Hiddleston

Tom Hiddleston who recently won Glamour Man of the Year has been on my list as hero inspiration ever since he appeared in the second series of Cranford --Return to Cranford. Recently he played Loki in Thor and Avengers Assemble plus playing Henry V/Prince  Hal in the BBC productions of Henry VI (parts I and II) and Henry V aka The Hollow Crown. If you haven't seen him as Prince Hal, you should. He holds the screen.
He is currently in Iceland filming Thor: The Dark World

Born in 1981, Tom attended Eton and then Pembroke College, at Cambridge University where he earnt a double first in Classics. He played rugby at Cambridge but gave it up to concentrate on his acting. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) in 2005.
What you notice about Tom is the way he holds the screen with his expressive blue-green eyes. He has curly blond hair and an engaging smile. He has a resonating voice and is 6' 1".  He is another actor who likes to keep his private life private.
One of the reasons that he took the part of Loki in Thor was that he didn't want to be typecast into only doing historical parts. He has a busy schedule of filming and will be appearing several films in 2013.
The following gives a sample of his voice:
