Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen are co-stars in I Saw the Light, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last week, but it was long before working on the film that the two found they have chemistry.

"Tom and I have been wanting to work with each other for a while," she told MTV News. "We've known each other for about four years, and we met doing a chemistry read for an audition and we were like, 'oh my God, this would be so much fun if we worked with each other.'"

Both have starred in separate Avengers films, but have yet to be seen onscreen together as Loki and Wanda Maximoff. I Saw the Light is the first time they share the spotlight.

"What happens is either people are so nervous that all they're thinking about is what they're doing in order to get the job, or two people are just like, 'I did the work and I guess we're trying to figure out if we have chemistry, so I'm going to put all my focus on you and listen and play,'" Elizabeth explained. "We both, doing that to each other within the scene, the intention is always to check in on each other and measure them in a way and we were like 'oh, we'll work really well together.'"

"That's fun as an actor to find someone who you have very similar language with," she added (wow, we really want to watch I Saw The Light now).

The two were seen getting cosy in July, sparking rumours that they were dating. Elizabeth, however, has brushed off speculation in an interview with Refinery29.

"I mean, we definitely are friends and we've known each other for about four years," she said. "And we happened to be at a restaurant at a wrong time having dinner. We all go out to dinner."

Is it just us or is that not really a denial? Please tell us there is hope for romance yet.
