Thread to talk about the actor Tom Hiddleston
>>595 Pic of Tom at the Nuffield Theatre Theatre!
>>597 Happy smile - hanging with his peeps at the theatre. Good to see!
I read recently that Harriet Walter and others “joined” him as a patron of the Nuffield Southampton Theatres (https://www.nstheatres.co.uk/about-us/news/harriet-walter-and-craig-david-announced-as-new-patrons-for-nuffield-southampton-theatres). Since he did that q&a in early 2015 I am not aware he has done any event for NST. He was originally named as an “associate actor”. See http://www.whatsonstage.com/southampton-theatre/news/07-2014/nuffield-southampton-50th-anniversary-season-hiddleston_34939.html.
>>599 From those articles, it looks as patron and assoc. actor are both “ambassador” roles. Probably something he can do as much or as little of as he wants and has time for. So a positive of his current situation is that he seems to have the chance to support organizations he cares about.
Tom looking good here.http://joemonster.org/mg/58675,28
Tom is still in the industry! And I think that he and his PR guy, Luke, have taken a page from the TS playbook by refocusing on charitable donations, and notifying the press about it, just like his peers do. The British actors have joined forces to fight sexual harassment just in time to promote the BAFTA film awards. Tom, Emma Watson, K Knightley, Emma Thompson Gugu M-W, Jodie Whittaker from Return to Cranford, etc. have made donations to a fund for victims of sexual assault, called the UK Justice and Equality Fund. Tom gave £10,000 and Emma W gave £1 million, and he made the contribution by name, on a GoFundMe page. Hmmm...I guess this is Tom's answer to the the Harvey Weinstein fallout, the Time's Up Movement, and acting in a Woody Allen film. Hmm... Processing. Given Tom's last 1.5years in the business, it was probably best for him to stay quiet on the issue, and let his financal contribution speak for itself. I'm a little wary of the Time's Up. The agents are heavily in involved in this. They agencies need good press themselves, b/c they knowingly led actresses to meet with a violent predator, when they many knew about Harvey's crimes.
Tom and Eddie R's Early Man has premiered in the US to roughly 3.2 million dollars so far at the box office so far, over President's Day weekend. I guess EM is family oriented counter programing to Marvel's Black Panther, which has swung quite a large ax this weekend.
Short i’vue with TH in Empire. Current project: improving 5k s time but not with Bobby cos he is too young. https://tumblr.tomhiddlestonnews.com/post/171058629121/zhora-salome-empire-magazine-april-2018-x
Apparently Sir Ken gave Tom a special copy of Hamlet (the one that Derek Jacobi had passed down to him): https://mobile.twitterDOTcom/IamMental_Leaps/status/965709646278295552
