March 2019: Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton Star in "Betrayal"
Tom Hiddleston and Zawe Ashton first met when they starred together in the West End production of "Betrayal." The show opened in March 2019 before heading to Broadway that August, at which point both Hiddleston and Ashton moved to New York for the gig. Ashton mentioned in an AOL Build Series interview in late 2019 that she'd grown close to both Hiddleston and their co-star Charlie Cox while working on the production. "We were really lucky that we, on day one, had an incredible trust," she said, adding, "I feel a core connection to these people and it's because I can feel how open we are. I can feel the trust that we have."
