“It was in 2009, we just got cast, and it was the first time I met Chris. We were at Kenneth Branagh’s house in England. And all I see when I look at that photo is inaccessible youth. It was interesting ‘coz we just met. Chris was Thor and I was Loki and [director] Kenneth Branagh had an idea. I think he went into an old wardrobe. He pulled out these colors because Thor’s cape was red and Loki’s cape was green. I think those costumes were from his movies of Henry V and Hamlet. My abiding memory of that day was Chris Hemsworth walking to the door and my first thought was, ‘Oh they cast the right actor’.”
