Tom Hiddleston nails Kiwi accent in impression of Taika Waititi as Korg

Kiwi director Taika Waititi stole the show as Korg in last year's smash blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok - and it seems nobody is a bigger fan than his fellow Avengers family member Tom Hiddleson.

The Night Manager star, who plays Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, dropped a spot-on impersonation of Korg in a new interview with BBC Radio 1.

Hiddleston and his Avengers co-stars Letitia Wright (Shuri), and Sebastian Stan (Bucky) were asked to discuss their favourite Marvel moments, with Wright naming Thor: Ragnarok, especially Korg, as a personal highlight.

"It just felt like Taika's personality splashed across a big screen," she said.

Stan was equally as enamoured, exclaiming: "The rock character! He's so funny!"

Hiddleston is clearly the biggest fan, nailing an impression of Korg's Kiwi accent; "Hey bro, my name is Korg. I'm made of rocks."

Boy filmmaker Waititi told Newshub last year the rocky character was a "little special piece of K Road bouncer outside a nightclub."

"I just like the idea of a character hard on the outside, and gentle like a marshmallow smudged together with daffodils on the inside," Waititi explained.

"He's like a motherly character; he looks after people - he doesn't like fighting."
