Feb 9 Like last year, Tom Hiddleston enjoyed the birthday wishes from his fans and here is his lovely thank you note: "Completely overwhelmed and humbled by all you lovely people wishing me a happy birthday. 34 & feeling very chipper. Had a lovely day. Happy." 20:05 - 9. Feb. 2015

And here is the proof that we again set a trend with #HappyBirthdayTomHiddleston

Feb 7 Some of you might know by now that your webmiss has become a fan of Tom Hiddleston, after seeing him first in Steven Spielberg's "War Horse", as Loki in both "Thor" movies and "The Avengers", "Only Lovers Left Alive" and on stage as Coriolanus since. He will turn 34 years young on Monday, Feb 9. And like last year his fans have come up with an idea how to congratulate him without bothering him: It will be done on Twitter, and if you want to participate, just post this #HappyBirthdayTomHiddleston in your account, starting this midnight UK time, Feb 9. It worked last year to start trending, and since Tom is on Twitter he'll again notice it. Without any expectations, it is just for fun and admiration for Tom Hiddleston. More infos.
Couldn't do this for Max's birthday in January because he doesn't do Social Media.

Dec 17 Photos from yesterdays premiere of "Tannbach" at the Sony Center in Berlin. Max did not attend (due to a back injury which prevents him from travelling or appearing on stage untill at least February) but his younger brother Florian was there - his part in this 3-part mini series for German TV network ZDF is way larger than the role of Max is. Others in attendance were director Alexander Dierbach, producers Max Wiedemann, Quirin Berg and Gabriela Sperl, and the actors Jonas Nay, Henriette Confurius, Nadja Uhl, Heiner Lauerbach with wife Viktoria, Martina Gedeck, Alexander Held, Maria Dragus, Ronald Zehrfeld and Ludwig Trepte.
