CHICAGO — On the Dean’s List/A-List interview for today, one of the stars of the upcoming Apple TV+ series “Essex Serpent.”

Tom Hiddleston and Claire Danes star in the story of a London widow who moves from Victorian London to the small town of Essex and forms a bond with a local pastor to investigate reports of a mythical serpent.

In a Zoom chat last week, Hiddleston, best known as Loki in the Marvel Universe, talked to Dean about working on a streaming series where you stay in one character for much longer than a two-hour movie.  

“The Essex Serpent” drops on Apple TV+ on May 13.
