Star of ‘Thor’ and ‘The Avengers’ Reveals Affinity for Iceland in GQ

Tom Hiddleston, known for playing the villainous character Loki in ‘Thor’ and last summer’s blockbuster ‘The Avengers,’ sat down with GQ last week for an interview that revealed the actor’s affinity for Iceland.

“We actually shot some of Thor 2 in Iceland and it was amazing when we were actually there, driving up these volcanoes listening to Sigur Ros. It suddenly all made sense. I think I must have Icelandic ancestry – I haven’t researched it, this is completely unofficial, I just feel very at home there,” Hiddleston said in the interview.

When asked how he makes his favorite drink, the English actor mentioned his love for Reyka vodka, another Icelandic product. “We would shoot on this dormant volcano, then we’d come back when the sun went down. It was really cold – sub zero already – and I’d order a Reyka and tonic with a squeeze of lime, then go and sit in the hot tub and wait for the Northern Lights to roll in.”

Tom Hiddleston will appear in Thor: The Dark World in 2013.
