It was Tom Hiddleston’s first impression of Chris Hemsworth


Tom Hiddleston thought Hemsworth was the perfect actor to play Thor

In 2009, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston were cast as Thor and Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was a big decision for the studio to bring in two relatively unknown actors, or “unnamed” as they were once called.

12 years later, this is by far the best decision they’ve made. Hemsworth and Hiddleston popularized the characters and succeeded through their comic book counterparts, bringing their acting skills and undeniable bromance to every performance. After playing in three Thor titles and multiple MCU movies together, then they’ll be seen individually in Marvel’s Limited Series Loki and the rest of Thor: Ragnarok, entitled Thor: Love and Thunder.

In a virtual appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! the actor has promoted his current series Loki and told an old memory, from the day he first met Hemsworth.

When Kimmel showed the actor a photo of him and Hemsworth first meeting, Hiddleston explained, “It was 2009 and we just got picked, and it was my first time meeting. Chris and we were at Kenneth Branagh [the film’s director] house in England. “

“All I see when I look at this photo is unapproachable youth,” the actor joked.

He then shared his first impression of Chris Hemsworth, revealing the first thought he had upon seeing the actor. “My lasting memory from that day was Chris Hemsworth walking through the door, and my first thought was ‘Oh, they picked the right actor’.”

At the time, Hiddleston had auditioned for both the roles of Thor and Loki, but he was thought to be a better fit for the role of the enemy / brother of the Asgardian God of Thunder.

The actor accepted that their casting was a “big bet” for the studio, but it had paid off. “That’s right, they took a big bet … and look what happened.”

Kimmel shared his thoughts on the brothers’ first on-screen photo together. He pointed out that Hemsworth looked like “a valet at Caesar’s palace” in his flashy red and gold jacket. Hiddleston, meanwhile, wore a vintage dark green blazer.
