Hiddleston’s impersonation of Thomas Sharpe, a wealthy English baronet, is fascinating as it taps into the audience’s familiarity with his acting repertoire. His portrayal of Thomas’ eagerness (or perhaps over-eagerness) to win over Edith is truly remarkable, as he also manages to convey the character’s underlying suspicious motivations. He draws you in with his charming portrayal of a devoted husband, but his convincing performance as a gaslighting character in this genre will blow your mind.
5 Fun Facts About Tom Hiddleston

- In college, he was called “Piddle”. Hiddleston revealed that during his time at Eton College, his last name was the perfect inspiration for his classmates to come up with a hilarious nickname that he’d rather forget. In a TV interview, he mentioned, “The boys made up the rhyme, ‘Hiddle Piddle did a widdle in the middle of the night.’”
- He can speak multiple languages. He knows some Spanish and French and even learned Greek and Latin at university.
- Initially, he auditioned for Thor! It looks like Hiddleston was aiming for wielding Mjolnir and calling down lightning bolts like the God of Thunder himself. Apparently, he went all out for his screen test, donning a luscious, flowing wig and a body that could make a Greek god jealous. However, the directors thought he would do better than Loki, which is why they immediately cast him for the role.
- His favourite film of all time is Heat starring two of the world’s best actors, Al Pacino and Robert de Niro.
