"This big evil character though, now that we know as Richard III; it was Shakespearean plays. But he wasn’t that, the real Richard III. There is something quite different."

Tom Hiddleston reads from Shakespeare’s ‘thrilling’ first folio (x)
Speaking from the Chief Commoner’s Parlour, a mock Elizabethan room in the Old Library of the Guildhall in the City of London, actor Tom Hiddleston gazed in awe at the first folio edition of Shakespeare’s works.
Hiddleston stars in the Donmar Warehouse’s new production of Coriolanus, as the warrior-politician. The cast includes Birgitte Hjort Sørensen as his wife Virgilia and Mark Gatiss as Menenaus. Also in the cast are Hadley Fraser as Aufidius and Deborah Findley as Coriolanus’s terrifying mother Volumnia.
"I find it personally very thrilling in quite a sort of nerdy way to sit and hold these pages which were printed 400 years ago." said Hiddleston.
Coriolanus is directed by Josie Rourke and opens at the Donmar Warehouse on December 6. Tickets:0844 871 7624;donmarwarehouse.com
I don’t even know if I want to see Coriolanus anymore.
Because what’s the point in trying to watch beautifully crafted and acted Shakespeare when fangirls giggle and make noise and run around the standing area trying to get a glimpse of a naked torso that we’ve seen before?
If I do see it, yes, it will be for Hiddleston - and indeed Gatiss, of whom I am a fan as well - but it will be for his performance. Not his abs or whatever you strange beings might desire to see. And I certainly won’t run around the theatre.
Nor will I crowd him at the stage door.
That shit needs to stop. It’s unfair and exhausting for him and that’s after having done two 180-minute performances a day. 5 hours of acting.
If you are guilty of hounding him, don’t do it again. He is a human being and deserves privacy, space, and above all - respect.
So give it to him.
I think I may have dermatillomania.
holy shit im fucking crying i’m such a christmas weenie
Holy crap did you know porcupines sounded this cute? I didn’t!
Did anyone realize that Remus found Harry wandering the castle by himself on Halloween because Ron and Hermione went to Hogsmeade and even though Harry didn’t give it much of a thought, Remus knew that it was the anniversary of James and Lily’s death so he took Harry to his office and prepared tea and talked to him so that neither one would feel alone? Because I just realized this and now I’m sad.
