Tom Hiddleston surprised children who were in attendance at a Halloween charity event that was showing a pre-screening of “Thor: The Dark World” on Oct. 31, according to a report in the NY Daily News. Hiddleston came to the screening to thank Variety the Children’s Charity of New York and the Children’s Aid Society for their contributions to kids in the Big Apple.
The “Loki” actor flew all the way from London in order to donate his time to surprise the children who came to see the second “Thor” film at the AMC Empire 25 theater.
I am Loki and I am filled with glorious purpose,” Tom Hiddleston announced to the kids in the theater before the show.
After the announcement, Tom Hiddleston left the theater to let the children screen his newest film. Hiddleston talked to the NY Daily News, explaining why it was worth it for him to make a trip to the event.
I just landed from London at 4 p.m. and to sort of come through the airport, throw on some clothes and come into that response where there were just 300 kids so excited to be there … To see that enthusiasm, to see them clap and cheer, wearing Loki T-shirts and swinging hammers, that was really gratifying,” Tom said of his experience.
There are armies of people behind the scenes who do tireless work on behalf of children all over the world … So it’s nothing for me to turn up and introduce a screening for them. I hope it’s a nice reward,” Tom said.
