“It’s a small step forward. There is still so much to do,” adds the star of the Disney + series.

After Jennifer Aniston and Sebastian Stan or Zendaya and Andrew Garfield, Lily James and Tom Hiddleston in turn participated in an interview “Actors on actors” organized by variety. The opportunity for the two actors to come back to their successful series: Pam & Tommy for her and Loki for him. He tells in particular his pride to embody an openly bisexual character at Marvel, knowing that this universe touches a large audience. Referring to a dialogue from episode 3 from the first season where his character tells Lady Loki (Sophia Di Martino) that he has had romantic relationships before “with princes and princesses”he explains during this interview: “When I started my research into ancient myths, Loki’s identity was fluid in all aspects, including his gender, his sexuality. It’s an old part of this character and I thought about it while playing him, but it never came out in the stories that we were telling. So I was very happy, I even felt privileged, when it happened on the show. It’s a small step forward. There’s there’s still so much to do. But the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to reflect the world we live in. It was an honor to bring that in. It was very important to me, to director Kate Herron, and to showrunner Michael Waldron. . I’m happy that we were able to integrate it into our story.” “It was amazingcommented Lily James. The impact that this can have on such a popular universe, seen on a large scale, which becomes the religion of certain people… And that people feel represented, that they see themselves on screen, it’s so important.”

Last month, Tom Hiddleston explained that Loki’s bisexuality would not be forgotten in season 2. This was made official by Disney+ following the success of the first episodes, which received generally positive reviews. The new ones should be shot at the end of the month in London and broadcast in 2023 on the platform.
