Words matter. These are the best Kate Herron Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
When I started the show, that was always in the DNA of it – that Loki was going to meet a version of himself and they were going to fall in love.
It didn’t come to pass or anything, but it would be interesting to do a ‘Sex Ed’ – Marvel crossover.
Well, I think the thing that was always important to us, first and foremost, was that our Loki, it’s his journey that he goes on, and that’s something that we definitely were looking at for a long time.
It’s about Loki’s journey, and he’s a character that wants the throne in episode one whereas by the finale, he doesn’t want that.
I grew up in southeast London and there’s a lot of brutalist architecture.
Basically, I love Loki, and I found out they were making a show about him.
I play a lot of board games, so you need to be quite good at strategy and poker faces so people can’t always read your hand.
I remember in ‘Men in Black,’ there’s a coffee room, a tiny little room where they have their coffee break. In the offices I worked in, yeah, there were rooms like that.
I feel like we’ve done a lot of amazing groundwork in setting up the TVA and Loki on a whole new journey.
I always wanted to direct stories that are big scale and fantastical worlds.
I’ve worked at a lot of random places, which weirdly has influenced ‘Loki’ in some ways because we have this office culture kind of running through it. I’ve worked in a lot of offices.
The main thing I would say is: Lady Loki in the comics is a very different character to our character, obviously.
Generally, Marvel manages everything internally and keeps us all in check.
When I started, there wasn’t a discussion of Season 2, exactly. It was just that season of ‘Loki.’ As we got deeper into production, everyone was very happy, and obviously there’s so much to explore with Loki.
An Alligator Loki is something that we all found hysterically funny.
Oh, I think I’d be a lighthouse keeper. I was living on my own for a lot through COVID, and I think I was quite good at it.
Directing all six episodes was a really unique experience, right? Because normally TV is run through the showrunner system, and Marvel didn’t do that on ‘Loki.’
When I joined the project, we always knew that Loki and Sylvie were going to go to He Who Remains, and the multiverse would be released. So I already knew when I got the job that it was going to be a massive undertaking to do that and a big responsibility for Marvel to get it right.
There are some actors who will come in firing and they just want to go for it. But they don’t want to do a million takes.
I love Marvel, and I was just so excited to have a chance to direct for them.
‘A Clockwork Orange’ was filmed near where I grew up, and ‘Children of Men.’
Loneliness is definitely a theme running through the show, but I think there’s hope in it also. Loki and Sylvie find each other, and there’s hope in that for them.
They changed my life, and I just love Marvel as I’m sure people can tell from the amount of Easter eggs and references I did throughout it. But I just feel like I’ve done my part with ‘Loki,’ at least for now, and I’m excited to see where it goes next as a fan.
I think that if a villain’s done right, you don’t necessarily have to like their actions, but you have to understand them.
In terms of the themes, I love gray areas. The show is really about what makes someone truly good or what makes someone truly bad, and are we either of those things? ‘Loki’ is in that gray area.
I think Marvel is really good at managing, and the thing I love about working with them is that you never feel hindered.
It was so exciting to me watching him go from villain to antihero over the last 10 years. So when I found out they were making a show about ‘Loki,’ I was very determined to get in the room for it, and they luckily met me and here I am. I would say I chased heavily after it as a ‘Loki’ fan.
I love that line, ‘Lokis always survive.’ That idea goes across all our characters who are Lokis.
Basically, Marvel always have an executive on every film. So we had Kevin Wright. And there’s kind of a Kevin Wright on every production that is essentially your producer, but they’re also the Marvel gatekeeper, I guess, or the overseer.
I love stories about self-love and finding your identity and your people.
I love villains.
When I worked in an office, I was definitely using a computer that should’ve been long gone over a decade ago but wasn’t because it wasn’t broken so they weren’t going to fix it.
I asked my agents, ‘Can you just keep calling them and get me a seat in the room to chat to them about it?’ And Marvel met me.
We’re taking Loki to an entirely new part of the MCU.
I’m really proud to have been part of Loki’s story. I gave it everything in my heart and my soul.
