Tom Hiddleston's young audience knows the actor best as the Marvel villain "Loki". The 40-year-old had his big breakthrough with the role but has been in the acting business for much longer. We'll show you what Tom Hiddleston looked like young.

When Tom Hiddleston (40) was young, he did not initially seek an acting career. The Hollywood star originally studied literature at Cambridge University. Only then did he start training as an actor...  

He graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Shortly thereafter, in 2007, he was able to land his first major role in Unrelated. He was also involved in some plays, for which he received only positive reviews and even won awards.  

The actor wore his hair blonde and curly back then, as old pictures show.

As a young theatre actor, Tom Hiddleston received awards for his appearances in the Shakespeare plays Cymbeline and Othello

The happy grin of the visibly proud actor didn't quite suggest that he would star as a villain just a few years later.

In 2011 he can be seen in Thor for the first time as "Loki" which finally sealed his successful career. In addition to stars like Chris Hemsworth (37), Natalie Portman (39), and Anthony Hopkins (83), the actor roams the red carpets of the world.
