Who’s the fairest fairy of them all?
In Disneytoon Studios newest Tinkerbell vehicle, The Pirate Fairy, the airborne ladies of Pixie Hollow must retrieve their stolen pixie dust, if they ever want to fly again. The dastardly culprit? Zarina, a fairy with an odd hairdo (voiced by Christina Hendricks). Leading the Pixie Hollow fairies is Tinkerbell (Mae Whitman), who is determined to restore her town’s flying abilities, but finds trouble when her fairy crew encounters some raucous pirates. One of those pirate voices may sound charmingly familiar — Tom Hiddleston voices the boy who would become Captain James Hook.
There is something about the stage that brings out the best in people. Performers who have achieved global fame on the big screen are humbled before an audience consisting of their old mates. In the climax of this year’s 59th Evening Standard Theatre Awards, Dame Maggie Smith faltered in the spotlight, her eyes glistening with tears, a lump in her throat, as she said that her heart actually ached for the theatre and she wanted more than anything to return to it. ‘But there is no Mrs Lear!’ she cried, as directors and playwrights across the room conferred in a collective aim to find a role for Maggie.
Earlier in the evening, Clarke Peters’ soft and slow rendition of ‘There’s No Business like Show Business’ was spine-tingling. Dame Edna Everage was at the top of her game, sympathising with the Comedy Award winner David Walliams over parents who could not even spell his surname correctly. The host for the evening, Damian Lewis (below), came on stage with a copy of Friday’s Evening Standard and a superbly reworked version of ‘Leaning on a Lamp-post’. He stage-managed the astonishing roll call of talent and national institutions — Boris Johnson, Barbara Windsor, Sir David Attenborough, Helen Mirren, Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear — with wit and warmth. The lure of theatre never felt stronger.
Do you have any particular method for learning Shakespearean lines?
I’m the man who looks like a lunatic walking around the parks of London talking to himself. I have to be on the move, I can’t learn them sitting at a desk. I march myself around outside,drilling the lines into my brain. There’s no secret: it’s repetition, repetition, repetition, like practising your forehand in tennis.
One of the biggest movie of this past month has been THOR: THE DARK WORLD, as it has grossed over $500 million dollars since it’s release on November 8th, 2013. There are a lot of themes that run through this movie that may appeal to the Live Theatre going audience, especially those that are fans of Shakespeare’s: revenge, pouty princes, royalty leading their men into battle. Yet, there is another reason that theatre lovers can enjoy this movie. All the Live Theatre performers that are in it!
Yet, one person that has received a lot of praise for his turn as the good old fashioned villain Loki, God of mischief, isTom Hiddleston. He may have exploded into public consciousness as the villainous Loki in the Thor movie, but he has been a Working Theatre and television actor for years before his role in this blockbuster movie.
His credits range from THE CHANGLING, CYMBELINE, Cassio in a production of Shakespeare’s OTHELLOAlongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Ewan McGregor to critical and later Lvov in a West End revival of Chekov’s IVANOV.
Starting December 6th through February 8th, 2014,, he can be found playing title character in William Shakespeare’s theatre adaptation of CORIOLANUS at the Donmar Warehouse and Covent Garden Theatre.
Check out what he had to say about acting, Shakespeare, and his famous co-stars when he came to San Diego for in July for Comic Con and visited Nerd HQ and Zachary Levi (currently in FIRST DATE on Broadway)? Pull up a chair, get some tea and see what he has to say!
Other things that he does in this chat that may entertain you:

In this he says there is a quote that he really likes which says (In French and English) “We all have 2 lives. The second begins when you realize you only have one- so don’t waste any time.” So click on that link already!
