Loki's Wunmi Mosaku Dishes On Her Long History With Tom Hiddleston - Exclusive

Looper spoke with Wunmi Mosaku, who plays Hunter B-15 on the Disney+ original series "Loki." Mosaku has largely made her name in England, appearing on shows like "Luther" before making her name in America on "Lovecraft Country." A Marvel Cinematic Universe property like "Loki" is her biggest project yet. "The great thing about Marvel," she told us, "is when you join them, you don't feel like, 'Oh my God, I'm in Marvel. And I'm so small and they're so big.' They actually make you feel right at home."

It helped that she already had some familiarity with two of her fellow stars, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Ravonna Renslayer) and Loki himself, Tom Hiddleston. "I went to RADA [Royal Academy of the Dramatic Arts] in 2004 and he graduated 2005. So, I had a whole year of watching him from age 18, watching him doing all of his shows. And yeah, we got on really well actually, at drama school. I do remember him being really friendly and really lovely. And he's not changed one bit. He's just as friendly and lovely as he always has been."

Even with that connection, this marks the first time the two have shared a professional project. "When you go to drama school and you have people who were above you that you've always watched and you look up to. It's nerve-racking, being in a scene with them. It's different if it's someone who's younger than you, or from a lower year group from you. But it's when you're looking at someone who you really looked up to, it's nerve-racking."

Even so, nerves didn't end up being a problem here. "Tom is so easy," says Mosaku. "He and I would run lines. He would run my lines with me over and over again. And that's not normal on any shoot, to be honest. To get another actor to run your lines with you, that doesn't really happen. That's the kind of homework that it's so boring that no other actor ever wants to do. But Tom is so gracious and really just wants everyone to do well."

"Loki" is now streaming on Disney+. Stay tuned to Looper for more exclusive coverage.
