Jonathan Majors has revealed how he was able to keep his role as Kang The Conqueror in Loki a secret for so long.
When Loki made its debut earlier this year, it quickly became one of the most popular streaming shows on the Disney Plus service. As the series went on there was a lot of speculation about who the head of the Time Variance Authority would be. The popular theory was that the man in charge of the organization would be Johnathan Majors as Kang The Conquerer and the theory proved to be correct.
Appearing in the season finale, Johnathan Majors was identified in the series as He Who Remains. Throughout the episode’s runtime, He Who Remains explained to Loki and Sylvie who he was and why he did what he did. Sylvie was not satisfied with the answer and killed him, causing numerous timelines to break away from the one the TVA created.
Before Loki‘s season finale aired, rumors circulated that Jonathan Majors’ character would be appearing in the show. These rumors did not come from the actor himself who adamantly denied being involved in the series. In a recent interview with Variety, the actor discussed how he stayed quiet citing how he doesn’t really talk to people and how keeping the secret made him feel like a biblical figure at times:
“I don’t really talk to people much. I just keep my head down. You got this little secret, you feel like Mary.”
Here is the synopsis for Loki:
In Marvel Studios’ “Loki,” the mercurial villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) resumes his role as the God of Mischief in a new series that takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.”
Directed by Kate Herron, with Michael Waldron serving as head writer, the series stars Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
