Flexibility is critical as it’s basically an action film. Tom Hiddleston is an action hero and the fights are extreme physical endurance, we honed those costumes like building a second skin.

We made his armour out of rubber and he was sewn into things at times. It was precisely fitted so he could move and look sexy because he’s got an amazing physique. It’s like working with a finely tuned instrument and you work very hard to get it right.

I’m not the only one thinking that Hiddleston is basically Olivia Newton-John for a new generation, right?
