They say a picture's worth a thousand words — however, the unspoken addition to that phrase is that when Tom Hiddleston is involved, a picture is worth the amount of words in a James Joyce novel. (For those of you who aren't as literary-inclined, that is a lot of words.) A lot. So obviously, when a flock of behind-the-scenes pictures of Hiddleston on set of The Night Manager hit the web, I knew I must take on the challenge of deducing the deep, inherent meaning behind these pics. It's a tough job but someone's gotta do it. And so, I am going to gift you with 4 things these Tom Hiddleston photos on The Night Manager set reveal.
But before I do, let's take a step back and take a look at The Night Manager. The co-produced miniseries from BBC One, The Ink Factory, and AMC stars Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie. According to the show's press release:
A contemporary interpretation of le Carré’s espionage drama, ‘The Night Manager’ will bring together love, loss and revenge in a complex story of modern criminality. The series follows former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Hiddleston) as he navigates the shadowy recesses of Whitehall and Washington where an unholy alliance operates between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. To infiltrate the inner circle of lethal arms dealer Richard Onslow Roper (Laurie), Pine must himself become a criminal.
So, Tom Hiddleston plays a good guy who has to go undercover as a bad guy. Could this be any more perfect? Let's take a look at the pictures from the set and see what Hiddleston has been up to lately.
Hiddleston's Emotional Depth Knows No Bounds
We all know Hiddles to be an emotionally complex man. Just look at how much emotional depth he gave to Loki. Here you can see him in the throes of an existential crisis, perhaps musing about the meaning of life or contemplating his own mortality.
Hiddles Would Make a Great Dad
Prepare your hearts to melt. These adorable pics prove that not only is Tom Hiddleston wonderful and welcoming to all of his fans, even of the younger variety, but it also shows that he would make a great dad. Just imagine little British baby Hiddles running around. Swooooon.
Hiddles Must Have Been a Doctor in a Past Life
Hiddleston is a man of many talents and, based on that chicken scratch of an autograph, I think it's safe to say that Hiddleston's talents were of the medical kind in a past life. Dr. Hiddleston has a nice ring to it, I'm just saying...
Even Dudes Love Hiddles
Hiddleston has a fanatical fan base that is rivaled in passion only by those One Direction fans — everyone is going full scale stalker to try to catch a glimpse of Hiddles.
