And if I can, I’ll return him to you.
♥Another precious moment brought to you by Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston♥
Interviewer: Are you Errol Flynn reincarnated?
Benedict Cumberbatch: I think he is. Look at him for Christ’s sake and he can act. He’s brilliant.
Tom Hiddleston: I can’t possibly comment.
Benedict Cumberbatch: I can…

Tom Hiddleston at the UK premiere of War Horse, 07 January 2012.
Even if this was one of the saddest parts in this movie, it really is one of my absolute favorites. It really shows off how talented an actor Tom really is…especially when he talks about the scene and Steven is telling him to “De-age” here. Like he said, Tom isn’t showing horror, he isn’t quite showing fear…his expression turns away from that determined, “We’re-going-to-win-this-fight” atmosphere and into a terrified child. He isn’t a twenty-something or thirty year-old man scared for his life; he’s a ten year-old child terrified of what’s to come.
Just…his ability to capture that so perfectly absolutely baffles me.
