Interviewer: Does Loki get fan mail?Tom Hiddleston: Truckloads! Last summer, someone rang my doorbell and said there was a delivery for me. I said, ‘I’ll buzz you through’, because there’s a gate in front of my front door. No, he said, I’m in a van and I have to reverse in. I asked why he couldn’t just take it out of the van – and he said ALL of the stuff in it was for me. And it was a big van.I unpacked it and I read it all. The most flattering thing is when people understand Loki, because he’s a damaged soul. In the story, the way he turned into the God of Mischief is that he was lied to, cast out, abandoned and betrayed as a child. A lot of his reason for wanting to stir up chaos has come from heartbreak, and this resonates with people. They write these long, articulate essays about it. It was intentional that Loki should be an entertaining character but also that there should be a shred of truth. So it’s pleasing to get those letters. And then people send dolls and teddy bears of Loki, and some amazing artwork. I was hopeless as art as a child - it just wasn’t one of the gifts that was bestowed on me. So I’m always amazed by those. There’s some stranger stuff too. People write fan fiction about him and that can get a bit racy!—Tom Hiddleston [on fanmails and fanworks].Important message, hence the whole quote.

Interviewer: Does Loki get fan mail?

Tom Hiddleston: Truckloads! Last summer, someone rang my doorbell and said there was a delivery for me. I said, ‘I’ll buzz you through’, because there’s a gate in front of my front door. No, he said, I’m in a van and I have to reverse in. I asked why he couldn’t just take it out of the van – and he said ALL of the stuff in it was for me. And it was a big van.

I unpacked it and I read it all. The most flattering thing is when people understand Loki, because he’s a damaged soul. In the story, the way he turned into the God of Mischief is that he was lied to, cast out, abandoned and betrayed as a child. A lot of his reason for wanting to stir up chaos has come from heartbreak, and this resonates with people. They write these long, articulate essays about it.
