“Thor” Cast Talks Movie, Music and Marvel (page 3)
Idris Elba & Jamie Alexander – Sif & Heimdall
Joining Hollywood’s growing list of superheroes are Idris Elba and Jamie Alexander. Their chemistry is hard to ignore, both onscreen and off. Jokingly, I asked Jamie about her recent Maxim shoot. She laughed and passed the mic to Idris, who joked about a Maxim shoot of his own. It’s obvious they’re both comfortable, and that same charm and passion drove their performances.
Surprisingly, music played a big role with each actor.
As Heimdall, the soulful, contemplative gatekeeper , Elba credits [lastfm link_type="similar_artist_radio"]Adele[/lastfm] as a major music influence in his life.
Alexander, the feisty and roguish soldier Sif, claims [lastfm link_type="similar_artist_radio"]Boston[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="similar_artist_radio"]Bon Jovi[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="similar_artist_radio"]Van Halen[/lastfm] among various other 80’s hair metal as her personal soundtrack.
