After the events of the God of War finale, Sunny Suljic she has understandably begun to look at her character with different eyes. The searing revelation changed Atreus forever, so interpreting the character required a different approach.
The young actor prepared himself for the acting challenge by observing one of his famous colleagues: Tom Hiddleston, known to most as the Loki of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. During the latest episode of Character Study made by Teen Vogue, Suljic admitted that his portrayal of Atreus in God of War Ragnarok was partially inspired by what she’s seen in the MCU: “When I found out I was Loki, it helped my performance a bit. That’s because Loki is a well-known character from Norse mythology, and essentially he’s a trickster. Because of this, I started watching Loki on Disney+ and fell in love with the show It’s a really good series that gave me a reference for the character and it was great to see someone else in his shoes. When I watched Tom Hiddleston, I got a little bit of his performance. I loved his performance, he was really good. However, I wanted to make sure I didn’t completely copy his character.”
In preparing his version of Loki, Suljic has also extensively studied Norse mythology and the screenplay for God of War Ragnarok, a game in which he had even more space than in the first chapter: “Ragnarok was a completely different story. I had more dialogue, more action scenes, more of everything. It’s It’s nice to be able to play as yourself.”
