Tom Hiddleston has played many a role in his career. Back in 2001, his first major project was the TV movie The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, while one of his main roles featured him playing Edward in the film Archipelago in 2010. And, of course, he is arguably most known for his role as Loki in Thor (2011).
