person:tom hiddleston

Imagine being invited to dinner by your ex-boyfriend. You had told Tom you weren’t going to go - you didn’t want to make him uncomfortable, but he insists that you go. There’s no reason for him to be jealous, plus you had always stayed friends with your ex, so it was no big deal. But when you come home hours late, and completely drunk, it became a big deal. He demands to know where you’ve been and why you didn’t call.

‘He's very sexy’: Tom Hiddleston, Simon Russell Beale and other actors on le Carré
Leading actors including Rachel Weisz, David Harewood and Damian Lewis reveal what John le Carré is like to work with

Tom Hiddleston played Jonathan Pine in the BBC adaptation of 
The Night Manager   

I had read Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy when I was young, but not The Night Manager. When I read the script for the first episode, I was thrilled and fascinated by the prospect of playing Pine. I read the novel many times after that. When it came to preparing for the series, le Carré was very present and actively involved. After a cast read-through of all six episodes in one sitting, we withdrew to a draughty anteroom behind a council hall in central London and listened to his generous feedback. He stressed in particular the delicate and almost parental nature of the relationship between agent runner and agent, in this case between Angela Burr (Olivia Colman) and Jonathan Pine. His attention to detail was forensic, and his insight invaluable.

Our fascination with spies stems from our natural curiosity about questions of truth and identity. Even as children, we develop a deep understanding of the transgressive act of lying. And yet spies must lie, or dissemble, for the greater good. John le Carré is the architect of our understanding of the world of spies. There is, behind the curtain of power, a complex network of interests and relationships, upon which depend our national security and prosperity. He has always understood that. He takes us behind the curtain. He is also one of the most sophisticated analysts of the British psyche, and the creator of the most thrilling novels of the past half-century. He understands that within the British cultural identity are contained many complex contradictions; that our sense of ourselves, and of our place in the world, is not fixed or clear.

Spy stories satisfy some innate curiosity within us, and le Carré’s are the best. They are emotionally and intellectually completely satisfying, politically resonant and genuinely thrilling.

A song“The Fall” by Rhye.

I just had a dream...

That literally lasted the entire night where I was searching high and low for Tom at some event I knew he was going to be at. I finally found him and he asked me if I wanted a picture and a hug and said “you’re cute” and when I went to go hug him I WOKE UP! Why do these things happen!?! And he had the black hair he had when he was doing the first Thor movie too. Same length and all. *sigh*

There was a terrifying moment of silence before the storm. Tom heard the car before he saw it. It seemed as if all nature stopped and only the sound of screeching tires filled the air.

He couldn’t move, shock overcoming him, the words ‘no, no, please no’ falling from his lips before he even knew he was saying them. Everything seemed to move slower. Even though he was running, it seemed like he couldn’t reach his son.
