Never stop. Never stop fighting. Never stop dreaming. Tom Hiddleston

I had huge fun with Chris Evans, as Captain America, because super-soldier though he may be, he's still a man, up against a God who in his own mind is infinitely superior. Then, in the ring with The Hulk, we've got this silver tongued, lightening quick mind up against the embodiment of rage..Loki has this mercurial, transformative ability, not just physically but intellectually, so not all the fights are purely physical. Mind games? Maybe.. Tom Hiddleston

What is the best use of my time on this planet? Tom Hiddleston

I gave myself permission to care, because there are a lot of people in this world who are afraid of caring, who are afraid of showing they care because it's uncool. It's uncool to have passion. It's so much easier to lose when you've shown everyone how much you don't care if you win or lose. It's much harder to lose when you show that you care, but you'll never win unless you also stand to lose. I've said it before. Don't be afraid of your passion, give it free reign, and be honest and work hard and it will all turn out just fine. Tom Hiddleston

In the end, you will always kneel. Tom Hiddleston

Don't judge people on who they used to be. Allow them to be who they are now. Tom Hiddleston

I don't want to name names because I don't want to draw too many direct comparisons but the history of Fascism is populated by people who need to subjugate other people and elevate their status and power to a level which is supreme. Usually, any psychological study of those people will reveal a sort of lost, damaged child, who is somehow heartbroken and doesn't have any self-worth. Tom Hiddleston

I love the acting community at Cambridge. It's really quite committed and serious, since the days of Derek Jacobi and Ian McKellen right through to Emma Thompson and Hugh Laurie. Tom Hiddleston

The dream is to keep surprising yourself, never mind the audience. Tom Hiddleston

I always found the extraordinary loss of life in the First World War very moving. I remember learning about it as a very young child, as an eight- or nine-year-old, asking my teachers what poppies were for. Every year the teachers would suddenly wear these red paper flowers in their lapels, and I would say 'What does that mean?' Tom Hiddleston

Our job is to represent the truth of human nature, whether you're playing a tender love story that's set in a coffee shop or whether you're in 'The Avengers,' which is set in a Manhattan which is exploding. Tom Hiddleston

My father and I used to tussle about me becoming an actor. He's from strong, Presbyterian Scottish working-class stock, and he used to sit me down and say, 'You know, 99 percent of actors are out of work. You've been educated, so why do you want to spend your life pretending to be someone else when you could be your own man? Tom Hiddleston

I am no saviour. I'm absolutely the last person on the planet who can practically help. I do' know how to make the different types of therapeutic feeding milk. I'm no chemist. I'm no doctor. I'm no engineer. I ca' manufacture polio vaccines or organise their transportation to the health centres in Saramoussayah or Bissikirima. I ca' build schools, or design drainage systems. I ca' provide the women and children of Mandiana with water.All I can do now is help make people aware of what is happening, of what they are doing. That is all that I can do. For now. Tom Hiddleston

The book [Night manager] is amazing. It is amazing to act in any book adaptation, because a book gives you so many secrets and details that don't necessarily get shot in an adaptation. They give you a cushion underneath everything. The detail in the character, the detail in the tone. Tom Hiddleston

The Night Manager doesn't exist in the post-Cold war universe, it exists much more in the modern world, I think. There is more action. The bad guys don't have particularly political or national-political affiliations. Tom Hiddleston

If you can run around the corner and say hello to someone do that instead of emailing. It's always more rewarding; the connection is always more authentic. If you've got something to say and you can say it someone's face, it's so much better, healthier. Tom Hiddleston

I think everyone should do what they love because it will never feel like work that way. Tom Hiddleston

Acting takes a degree of mutual trust and respect. Tom Hiddleston

When you're starting out as an actor people are very interested in who you are because they want to know where they can put you. And quite often, and we're all guilty of this is our lives, we judge very quickly and we pigeon-hole people very quickly based on how they look and how they talk and how they dress and we think: "Oh yeah, we know who you are." Tom Hiddleston

In our increasingly secular society, with so many disparate gods and different faiths, superhero films present a unique canvas upon which our shared hopes, dreams and apocalyptic nightmares can be projected and played out. Tom Hiddleston

Make sure you tell the people you love that you love them. Loudly and often. You never know when it might be too late. Tom Hiddleston

The weird thing about serious acting is I've always done impressions of people, all my life, and I did the thing called a balloon debate. The idea is there's a hot air balloon traveling across the Atlantic and it's going down and you have to give a speech as to why you should stay in the balloon. Six people are going to be chucked out and you want to stay. Tom Hiddleston

One of my New Year's resolutions was to interact more with people. That sounds quite technical, but literally face time. Not FaceTime, because that's a thing now, but to be in the room with someone. To turn your phone off. To sit and have dinner and just be there with somebody. Tom Hiddleston

There are certain things in the scripts that need to be planned: you know, big stunt sequences, battle sequences... you can't improvise that stuff.

Heath Ledger's performance in 'The Dark Knight' quite simply changed the game. He raised the bar not just for actors in superhero films, but young actors everywhere; for me. His performance was dark, anarchic, dizzying, free, and totally, thrillingly, dangerous. Tom Hiddleston

I'd love to see T'he Avengers' with Robert Downey, Jr. playing Loki and Clark Gregg playing 'Thor' and I play Captain America. Tom Hiddleston

I never like to make plans. It's nice to just hang. Tom Hiddleston

I couldn't possibly tell you. But I would say be very careful with your suppositions. People are so quick to jump. That's what I love about playing the character. People are so quick to draw conclusions about who he is. The whole thing about Loki is that he's dancing on this liminal line between redemption and destruction. Just be very careful about drawing conclusions based on what you see. Tom Hiddleston

The best comedy is always played straight down the middle. Tom Hiddleston

I did a production of 'Journey's End,' an RC Sherriff play about World War I, at the Edinburgh Festival. I was 18 and it was the first time that people I knew and loved and respected came up to me after the show and said, 'You know, you could really do this if you wanted to. Tom Hiddleston

Sometimes love really is just that simple. Tom Hiddleston

My instinct is to keep people guessing. I think as an actor your greatest strength is your versatility, I suppose. The blanker the canvas, the easier it is to project the illusion of a character onto it. I think there are many actors who do that very successfully. Tom Hiddleston

Honestly, I'm happiest when I'm with my best friend and we're just laughing about life and times, there is nothing greater than friendship in this world. And that kind of sort of mutual acceptance ; to feel known and understood by people and to feel like you know and understand them back is all you can ask for. Tom Hiddleston

I'd like to fight everybody who wants to make war on people. I'd like to fight bullies, actually. I'd like to stand up to the bullies in this world. I was actually mugged once in London, and I was completely defenseless. They came at me with a... I was held at knifepoint. And I felt so angry that I let them do it and I think I'd like to go back and say 'Look, it's okay', and if they tried to stab me, I could just say 'You can stop that now'. Tom Hiddleston

Honestly, I'm happiest when I'm with my best friend and we"re just laughing about life and times, there is nothing greater than friendship in this world.

Everybody thinks that you go to Africa and you build a school, or you teach English, or you build a hospital. But actually all you need to do is play football with kids for six months and then after they've trusted you, you tell them about the truth of Aids, and that their grandmother didn't die from witchcraft, she died from Aids. And that's the biggest difference you can make. Tom Hiddleston
