Showing young children in these communities, that there are outlets for their feelings, that there is room in a space for their stories to be told, and that they will be applauded-and it's not about ego, it's about connection: that their pain is everybody else's pain. Never stop. Never stop fighting.
Never stop dreaming. And don't be afraid of wearing your heart on your sleeve - in declaring the films that you love, the films that you want to make, the life that you've had, and the lives you can help reflect in cinema. For myself, for a long time So if you've got something to say, say it from the rooftops. I am very proud of my work for the BBC, but I never wanted to stay stuck in the past. Loki has set me free from a particular casting type. But the work is the same. Rigor, discipline, humility, punctuality, above all: truthfulness.
Tom Hiddleston returns to Shakespearean roots in ‘The Hollow Crown’
I've never worked harder on anything in my life. It means the world. Now I look sideways. He was so good. I was so proud to call him my friend - it's one of the most electrifying performances by an actor this year. Tom Hardy - he's doing things that I think no British actor has ever done.

It's so much easier to lose when you've shown everyone how much you don't care if you win or lose. It's much harder to lose when you show that you care, but, you'll never win, unless you also stand to lose.
Don't be afraid of your passion. But it never stops being sad because for that short time you become a family. You do, you see the same people every day for sixteen hours a day, for months on end, and you're so bound together by your common purpose, which is to make a great film. I get asked to play a lot of complex people, which is great because I think that people are complex, much more so than any of us are really willing to let on.

So romantic, so sexy. Also I have to say as a short person I really like that they didn't have her standing on a giant box to get rid of the massive height difference between them. Instead they worked with the height difference which gave us that lovely finger under the chin moment. Ah, yes. The Henry V kiss. The kiss itself. Perfectly lovely. The hesitation before.
