A famous person you admire.

There are many famous people in the world who are in the entertainment line, science field and so on. The person I admire in particular is actor Tom Hiddleston. He was born in Westminster, London, as the middle child with two sisters.

Tom Hiddleston is best known for his role as Loki in the films 'Thor', 'The Avengers' and 'Thor: The Dark World'. In 'Thor', Loki was the main antagonist, striving to claim the throne of Asgard and was willing to kill his brother, Thor and father, Odin for it. In the end he failed and was sucked into an abyss and later reappeared in 'The Avengers', seeking to claim the Earth as his own with the help of the Chitauri, an alien race with a massive army but was defeated by the Avengers, comprising Thor, Ironman, Captain America, Hawkeye, Hulk and Black Widow. He was later sent into jail by Odin in 'Thor: The Dark World' and later joined forces with Thor to defeat Malekith, leader of the dark elves, only to be seemingly killed by the Kursed. He was later seen impersonating Odin.

What I like about Tom Hiddleston is that he brings out the character Loki really well. He plays Loki with so much compassion and really brings the character to life from the comics to the big screen. I love the way he acts, taking up each scene with much anticipation and compassion. In 'Thor', he was first seen as a person who will do anything to seize power. The way he acted as Loki in 'The Avengers', bringing out the mad and evil side of Loki, really caught everyone's attention. Throughout the movie, he showed how power-hungry Loki could be and that he would take whatever it took to seize control of the Earth. In 'Thor: The Dark World', he showed that he had a reason to help Thor and that he loved his stepmother, Frigga, deeply. He demonstrated the love when he used magic to smash furniture against the walls when he found out about her death.

When he first signed up for 'Thor', he tried out for the character Thor but was found to be unsuitable. But during the interviews, he showed so much determination and was seen as the perfect person to play Loki.

In real life, he is known to value his fans and always entertains them well. He will tweet with them on Twitter and he even has a group, called "Loki's Army", going after him. That is how much Tom Hiddleston has influenced the world of entertainment as one of the best villains to ever take on the big screen. During interviews, he would always be jovial and tell jokes. Even his own fellow actors like Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth say that he is a fun and supportive actor, even though he is the eldest among the trio. Two of his personality traits that I admire are that he always does his best and he is extremely humble.

To sum it up, Tom Hiddleston is one celebrity I really admire and I would love to meet him one day. I hope that my dream would come true in the near future.
