I remember shooting the first series of Wallander and on my day off I got the train to Malmö and went to see Iron Man with Robert Downey Jr. And I came out thinking, ‘That’s so fucking good. But I’m never, in a million years, going to be in a film like that.’ But then I tested for the part of Loki in Thor and came away thinking, ‘You know, I’ve got a real chance at this.’ It was like a light going on. We all impose limits on ourselves. We think, ‘There’s the ceiling and that’s as far as I can go.’ Then something happens and it changes everything.
Tom Hiddleston being perfect, as usual
