Tom Hiddleston continues to prove to the world that there's much more to him than just Loki. The multi-talented Hiddleston took home the Best Actor award at the 60th London Evening Standard Theatre Awards this past Sunday, November 30. Hiddleston took a break from filming the lead role in the Hank Williams biopic I Saw The Light in Shreveport, Louisiana to attend the awards ceremony at London's Palladium Theatre.
Hiddleston won for his visceral performance as the titular honor-bound Roman general of Shakespeare's Coriolanus
during the play's sold-out run at the Donmar Warehouse. Other nominees in the category included Ben Miles and Hiddleston's fellow Jaguar "Good To Be Bad" ad campaign villain Mark Strong.

television series. She is currently a cast member of the NBC series Hannibal
