Avengers and Loki star Tom Hiddleston is one of the big names that has been thrown around time and time and time again when it comes to who will be the next James Bond.

A conversation springs up as soon as an actor has been cast and reaches a fever pitch when they say they are leaving the role.

Speaking in the latest Empire magazine, Tom addressed all the speculation surrounding himself and people like Richard Madden and ex-Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, reflecting on how people will take everything he says as a clue.

"What can I say that you don't already know?" he said. "It's interesting in itself that I've suddenly become very aware of what I'm saying, is it not?

"Because there's something about what I'm saying that becomes the story. Not for you, but for the world outside. Whatever I say, I've found, generated more questions."

One question that the actor does answer is whether he had Bond in mind when going for The Night Manager, a show that featured Hiddleston as an English master of espionage.

The star said that it wasn't something that he thought about at first, and was actually surprised that people compared it to 007.
