Rising Star: Tom Hiddleston, Actor

When you find yourself playing Cassio to Ewan McGregor's Iago, you could be forgiven for not standing out. Yet Tom Hiddleston was the name most bandied about by those who saw the Donmar's 'Othello' last winter. The Rada graduate is now starring opposite Kenneth Branagh in 'Ivanov', and last week made his film debut in 'Unrelated'. Next up, he's in the BBC's 'Wallander', again opposite Branagh. "Ken is calling it his Hiddleston year," joked the actor recently.
