Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I hope you're jumping over from reading my big ol' Crimson Peak set visit report (read that here
), but if you don't like reading fun things here's the short prep to get you ready to dive into this onset interview with Tom Hiddleston. If you've read the set report, just skip down to the Q&A! Ready? Let's go!So, I was pulled away from the set visit and led to Hiddleston's trailer to do this chat. He opened the door half in his costume, his lacy shirt billowing in the breeze and the whole nine yards. No shit, it was like a Harlequin romance cover come to life and I realized there were about 2 million girls in this world that would have slit my throat to have been in this position.
His trailer smelled strongly of incense (the good shit, not the headshop skunk crap) and he had photos and art taped up on the cabinets, all relating to his character in some way. Lots of Victorian era men and women, mostly high society types and there were some creepy dead bride stuff, too. I bring that part up because I touch on it in the below interview.
After some small chit chat we sat down and began the below interview. It's a good one. This guy is a great talker and wickedly intelligent to boot.
Alright, let's get started! Enjoy!( Collapse )
READ THE REST OF THE INTERVIEW @ THE SOURCE!
I promise it's interesting! Lots of talk about Gothic Romance, moral ambiguity, and subverting audience expectations, as well as what it was like working with Guillermo Del Toro, Mia Wasikowska, and Jessica Chastain.
