British Actors You Should Know: Tom Hiddleston

Much like previous British Actor You Should Know Benedict Cumberbatch, it’s highly likely that you probably actually do know who Tom Hiddleston is, even if he’s only “Loki from The Avengers” or “Henry V from The Hollow Crown” in your mind and you have no idea what his actual name is as a real live person.

You should probably remember his actual name though, because he’s quite a talented actor with a diverse array of roles under his belt. And given the fact that he’s now garnered quite the online army thanks to his Marvel role, general good nature and focus on worthy charitable causes, it would seem that he’s not going anywhere time soon and will probably be making his mark on many more roles in future. (And it's the sort of acclaim that will be well deserved.)

However, Hiddleston’s career is made of more roles than just Loki. Here’s a look at a few of them.
