6098 In the following video below, Thor 2 actor Tom Hiddleston is asked about Christopher Eccleston, who plays the film's villain, Malekith the Accursed.

Hiddleston has only good things to say about Eccleston, as he really can't offer too many spoilers.

"Christopher Eccleston is one of Britain’s greatest actors He brings a degree of commitment, intelligence, conviction and complexity to everything he does. I think he really got his teeth into this thing. Christopher has enormous presence, which is very distinguishable on stage as well as film. It’s one of those things you can’t really define, you just can’t stop watching him when he’s on screen. I think he’ll be absolutely magnetic. Malekith has his own ambition. Whether or not Loki can coincide with or contradict, subvert or enhance that ambition remains to be seen."
