The Loki series on Disney+ introduced a new character Sylvie. Although the character may resemble Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief in both an aesthetic and costuming, she is definitely not Lady Loki.
Actress Di Martino explains this in an intereview:
“I looked at his performance, but I try not to be shaped by it too much. Sylvie has had a very different backstory to Loki. She’s a different person, and that was really important to us right from the beginning. When Kate Herron pitched me the idea when I finally got the job, and she was able to tell me a bit more about it, it was very clear that Sylvie was Sylvie.
And she’s not Lady Loki from the comics. I mean, the show is inspired by the comics, but this is a brand new backstory in a brand new story. And so I wanted to make her my own. You will see, at times throughout the series, that Tom and I do very similar things, like our physicality is similar or when we choreographed fight scenes, we’ll mirror each other. And that’s all purposely done. And then the rest of it I’ve kind of just made up as I go along.”
The Loki series seems to bring us more questions than answers lately which is why we probably keep coming back each week. We how to find out sooner than later who exactly Sylvie is.
