Regarding Hiddleston there's a cute interview where he says 'I'm not a very good actor I just dye my hair a lot' :) he does look very different in everything! I'm resolved to keep watching him though!

Saw some pics of him on set The Crimson Peak  yesterday - they've given him dark, straggly, longish hair that is either gelled up or meant to be greasy, and he actually looks rather creepy!

It's amazing the difference costume and hair/ makeup make.

I think it depends on the theatre - some balconies are fine, some circles feel miles away.

Even in a tiny space like the Donmar I feel much more involved in the stalls than the side circle.

I totally agree with that. It actually took me a while to fall, as I saw him or 2 or 3 things before I realised it was the same guy!

I'm rubbish at recognising actors when they're in character, though - I'm forever playing 'what have I seen you in before you look vaguely familiar' in the interval.

Shenton's always tags who he's talking about in his Twitter reviews. No-one ever complains when he's making positive comments!!

Just also seen James Franco insulting a New York critic over his review. I do think it reflects very badly on actors who react this way - accepting criticism gracefully is part of the job, surely.

I'm an unashamed Hiddleston fangirl, and I fully expected Kinnear to win. I'm pretty sure Hiddleston expected Kinnear to win too, judging by his reaction.

Hiddleston has plenty of time - he'll definitely be returning to the stage in future. Maybe he'll convince some of you lot who aren't impressed by him in future, or maybe he's just one of those actors you either do or don't respond to.
