In an interview with Collider, Tom revealed details about his role in the upcoming Guillermo del Toro film “Crimson Peak”.
Tom Hiddleston revealed that while he wasn’t the first choice to play Sir Thomas Sharpe in “Crimson Peak,” he jumped at the opportunity knowing that he would be working with Guillermo del Toro and a stellar list of cast members.
He said, “It’s just brilliant, it just is a brilliant screenplay, and I wanted to work with him, I knew that Jessica, and Mia [Wasikowska], and Charlie [Hunnam] were locked in and on board; and I love Mia and I know Jessica from before and I wanted to work with Charlie so there was just no possible way I was going to say ‘no’.”
“Working with Guillermo who I’ve admired for so long,” Hiddleston continued. “And the script itself was just brilliant, the screenplay was captivating and rich and sophisticated and terrifying; and the role was amazing, and different than anything else I’d done, It was a very, very quick ‘yes’ after that.”
Tom Hiddleston’s Sir Thomas Sharpe will be the main hero or “antihero” as the actor puts in. He will be a hauntingly beautiful gentleman, wrapped in mystery come “Crimson Peak” release date. Hiddleston revealed, “I think he’s the antihero, but certainly he’s the most morally ambiguous or complex figure in the story, because I think he’s genuinely caught in-between people and in-between conflicting emotions and is trying to find the best route through a very, very, difficult tangle of what people need from him and want from him and what he feels is his responsibility to those people.”
The website HitFix has published an interview with Tom for Daniel Fienberg, which took place about a year ago on the set of “Crimson Peak”. Read it below.
TORONTO, ONTARIO. As you’ve discovered if you’ve ever sent out a tweet containing the word “Hiddleston,” the “Thor” star and British Shakespeare veteran has a legion of passionate fans.
On Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming Victorian haunted house drama “Crimson Peak,” Hiddleston was a late arrival, stepping in for one of the few actors capable of engendering comparable levels of online hyperventilation, Benedict Cumberbatch.
For Hiddleston, there was no hesitation when first his agent, then del Toro, then Jessica Chastain all called to woo him to play Sir Thomas Sharpe, a fading British aristocrat who brings his new American bride Edith (Mia Wasikowska) home to his familial estate as part of an attempt to reboot his fortunes, setting in motion initially creepy and eventually terrifying happenings.
“[T]here was no possible way I was going to say no,” Hiddleston laughs, sitting in a prop warehouse near the Toronto sound stages housing the massive “Crimson Peak” sets in March 2014. “Working with Guillermo, who I’ve admired for so long, and the script itself was just brilliant. The screenplay was captivating and rich and sophisticated and terrifying. And the role was amazing and different from anything else I’d done. It was a very, very quick yes after that.”
Our gallery has been updated with missing stills and a promotional photoshoot from “Crimson Peak”. New interviews with Tom are currently being released, which means the promotion might be getting started, so keep an eye on our Twitter account @TomH_Online for the heads up on our updates!
Yahoo Movies visited the Toronto set of “Crimson Peak” in early 2014: At very near the stroke of midnight, after a long day of shooting a dramatic scene, Tom met with them to speak about his role. Read on for his thoughtful take on his character’s personal demons, family dynamics, and why this is his most “kinky” film to date. The film arrives in theaters October 16.
When Benedict Cumberbatch dropped out, Guillermo sent the script to you. He said you turned around almost immediately and accepted — within 72 hours. Was your decision based on him? Was it based on the script?
Tom Hiddleston: It happened very quickly. My agents called and said, “Guillermo del Toro is going to call in the next hour.” And he called me, and he told me the story and he said, “Don’t say yes or no. I’m going to rewrite the script this weekend and send you a new draft.” Then an hour later Jessica called me and said, “You have to do it. I want you to do it. Guillermo wants you to do it.” I was really excited. I couldn’t wait to read the script. It must have been a day later and I got it and read it immediately in one sitting. He had rewritten the part for me in a way, so I got my own draft. And it was just brilliant. It was just a brilliant screenplay. I knew that Jessica and Mia and Charlie were locked in; I love Mia, and I knew Jessica from before, and I wanted to work with Charlie. There was no possible way I was going to say no. The screenplay was brilliant. It was rich and captivating and terrifying. The role was amazing and different from anything else I had done. It was a very, very quick “yes.”
