BAFTA: What advice would you give to someone starting out [in acting]?

Tom Hiddleston: I am always quite wary of giving advice because people generally like to find their own way and all the advice I can think of is much better than any advice I could give. It’s Shakespeare’s “to thine own self be true.” - The more authentic and honest you are in interaction with the world both professionally and personally the better you will be placed to do the kind of work which will touch others and move their hearts and minds. Because if you mean it the chances are it is going to mean something to someone else.
