Tom Hiddleston On Christopher Eccleston’s ‘Malekith’ Portrayal In THOR: THE DARK WORLD
With Iron Man 3 getting the most attention lately as its release date nears, we haven’t heard much about Marvel’s other 2013 Phase Two installment, Thor: The Dark World. Thespian Tom Hiddleston spoke to Red Carpet News TV during the South Bank Sky Arts Awards and teased the sequel’s new villain, Malekith played by Christopher Eccleston. Praising his co-star, Hiddleston explains, carefully not to spoil, his God of Mischief’s relationship to the Dark Elf ruler. Video & transcription below!
Praising his co-star Christopher Eccleston’s portrayal of Malekith, Thor: The Dark World Loki actor Tom Hiddleston carefully explains his God of Mischief’s relationship with the Accursed villain. Check it out!
“Christopher Eccleston is one of Britain's greatest actors, he brings a degree of commitment, intelligence, conviction and complexity to everything he does. I think he really got his teeth into this thing [playing Malekith]. It's hard to say anything without giving away too much. Christopher has enormous presence, which is very distinguishable on stage as well as film. It's one of those things you can't really define, you just can't stop watching him when he's on screen. I think he'll be absolutely magnetic [in the movie]. Malekith has his own ambition. Whether or not Loki can coincide with or contradict, subvert or enhance that ambition remains to be seen.”
