A quick look at the some of the High-Rise team’s greatest hits. Today, lead actor Tom Hiddleston who is playing Dr. Robert Laing
ARCHIPELAGO (2010) – the second of three collaborations with director Joanna Hogg, based around a family gathering in the Isles of Scilly – a subtle and understated performance that captures the uncomfortable reality of family dynamics.
THOR / THE AVENGERS / THOR: THE DARK WORLD (2011-13) – Loki is the role that put Hiddleston on many people’s radar – a gleefully over the top performance, and everyone’s favourite Marvel baddie.
MIDNIGHT IN PARIS (2011) – a supporting role as author F. Scott Fitzgerald in Woody Allen’s time traveling romance, Tom shows his comedic talents to the full.
THE HOLLOW CROWN (2012) – in this trio of Shakespeare adaptations for the BBC, Tom inhabits the role of Prince Hal (later Henry V) to the full, banishing lingering clichés of stodgy history plays.
ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE (2013) – starring alongside Tilda Swinton, Tom plays Adam, a centuries-old vampire who begins to despair at humanity for destroying the world around them. It was also his first collaboration with Oscar-winning producer Jeremy Thomas, who is the driving force behind HIGH-RISE.
