Early Life

On February 9, 1981, Thomas William Hiddleston was born in Westminster, London, England. His father, James, was a physical chemist; his mother, Diana, was a former stage manager and arts administrator. Tom Hiddleston attended the Dragon School after the family relocated to a town close to Oxford. He had previously attended a boarding school known as Windlesham House School. Tom grew up in Wimbledon with his sisters Emma and Sarah. When Tom was twelve years old, James and Diana got divorced. The next year, he moved into boarding at Eton College.

After enrolling at the University of Cambridge, Hiddleston was discovered by talent agent Lorraine Hamilton, who signed him after seeing him in a performance of “A Streetcar Named Desire“. Tom joined the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London after receiving a double first in Classics, where he graduated in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts in Acting.

His first appearance on English television came in 2001 when he played a little part in The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. Subsequent works included The Gathering Storm (2002) and Conspiracy (2001).

Net Worth

Tom Hiddleston possesses an incredible $40 million in net worth. His lucrative acting career, in addition to his producing, musical, and brand endorsement endeavors, has allowed him to live an affluent lifestyle that includes an exquisite automobile collection, exotic vacations, and lavish real properties. Even with his wealth and notoriety, Hiddleston’s dedication to charity work demonstrates a heart as brilliant as his brilliant career.

Theater Career

For the next seven years, Tom Hiddleston concentrated on being a theater-based thespian, except for the 2007 feature film Unrelated and a few infrequent TV appearances on the BBC (Wallander and the documentary Galapagos, where he voiced Charles Darwin). He studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, where he also received his degree in 2005. For his portrayal of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, the actor was named the 2008 Laurence Olivier Award winner for Best Newcomer in a Play. He played opposite Ewan McGregor in Othello that same year.

Tom’s Breakout Role as Loki


Tom tried out for the lead part of Thor in the 2011 Marvel movie of the same name, but director Kenneth Branagh chose to cast him as the endearing antagonist Loki. In movies like The Avengers (2012), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Thor: Ragnarok (2017), and Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Hiddleston kept up his portrayal of the cheeky figure. In addition, he voiced the character in the animated television series What If…? (2021), played Loki in the television series Loki (2021), and appeared in the Simpsons short films The Good, The Bart, and the Loki (2021) and Welcome to the Club (2022).


Apart from his roles as Loki, Hiddleston starred in several films, including War Horse (2011), Only Lovers Left Alive (2013), Midnight in Paris (2011), and The Deep Blue Sea (2011). Tom won the Richard Attenborough Film Awards’ 2012 Rising Star Award for his performance in the film War Horse. He also starred in a miniseries called The Hollow Crown (2012–16), which was an adaptation of Shakespeare’s history plays, including Richard II, Henry IV: Part 1, Henry IV: Part 2, and Henry V. Hiddleston carried on performing on stage in the meantime, playing the lead role in Coriolanus (2013). Later, despite the film’s poor reception, he received positive reviews for his portrayal of Hank Williams in the biopic I Saw the Light (2015).

For the television series The Night Manager (2016), in which Hiddleston starred as the title character Jonathan Pine, he was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for best actor in a limited series in 2016. He appeared in Branagh’s 2017 version of Hamlet on stage. In 2019, he made his Broadway debut in Betrayal, for which he was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actor.

UNICEF Ambassador

As an ambassador for UNICEF UK, Hiddleston has been bringing attention to the humanitarian situation in South Sudan and Guinea for many years. In 2013 he visited Guinea; in 2016 and 2017 he visited South Sudan. 

“Everywhere there is inequality, everywhere there is division, and I worry about it,” the actor told Interview magazine in 2016. “I think everybody does. I wish we could be decent to each other. And I’ve thought a lot about whether I have a responsibility to stand up for what I believe in because I have a platform because I have a voice. There is a red line where you do have to stand up for these children. They haven’t asked for this. And, by the way, I am so profoundly aware of my lack of skill to make any material difference. I am not a doctor. I can’t influence foreign policy. I can’t build schools. I can’t chemically engineer the protein paste that helps people with acute malnutrition. But I can talk about it, and so can you.”
