Loki is really a damaged soul. On one hand, there is this emotional volatility. He’s neither Asgardian nor Frost Giant — and he is entirely alone, and that makes for a very sad spirit. On the other hand, he’s someone who overtly delights in the chaos he creates. He’s an agent of mischief. There are two roads that I have to go down in my journey to play him: one is to excavate the depths of his spiritual pain and the other is to try and find a place within myself that enjoys wreaking havoc.
rock and roll is in my blood
OMG, I’m watching E News and they randomly show a teaser for Thor 2 and this bastard shows up. I’m fangirling so damn hard!!!
“All of his spiel about freedom, which he brings up often and how crippling it is for people, I enjoyed enormously writing, not just because it sounds like silly Elizabethan-type talk, but because I really believe that he believes it. It makes perfect sense on some level to that humanity is not doing a very good job of taking care of themselves and what they’d really like is for Daddy to make it better. And for him to espouse that so articulately and not understand that only a person who’s deeply damaged would ever want to be the person who takes care of everybody is, I think, what makes his character so interesting.”
