... Harry has to find out, before we find out. Striving for the right answers? This is accomplished by Draco Malfoy, who arranges transportation of Death Eaters into Hogwarts by a pair of Vanishing Cabinets, which bypass the extensive protective enchantments placed around the school. Because of a phenomenon later revealed as Priori Incantatem, ghost-like manifestations of Voldemort's most recent victims (including Harry's parents) then appear and distract Voldemort, allowing Harry just enough time to escape via Portkey with the body of fellow-student, Cedric Diggory, who was murdered by Pettigrew on Voldemort's orders.[20]. Of all the actors to don the pale makeup and non-existent nose, British actor Ralph Fiennes is undoubtedly the thespian most closely associated with the role of Lord Voldemort. Although Ralph Fiennes is the actor most commonly associated with Lord Voldemort, he didn't take on the role until "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." To achieve his objective, Voldemort uses Professor Quirrell's aid by latching onto the back of the latter's head. He was born to Merope Gaunt, a direct descendant of Salazar Slytherin, and Tom Riddle Sr., a wealthy and extremely snobbish Muggle. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Voldemort is initially only heard, possessing the scratchy, weak voice heard in the first film. The villain had survived his brush with Potter and eventually came to graft himself onto the head of the otherwise unassuming Professor Quirrell, a naive student that he met by chance and subsequently corrupted. [25] The book also discusses Riddle's hatred of Muggles, his obsession with Horcruxes, and his desire to split his soul to achieve immortality. Hero Fiennes-Tiffin appeared when Dumbledore and Harry began diving into memories that would help them find a way to defeat the growing threat of Voldemort once and for all. He is, however, heard when Harry passes out from the harsh effects of a Dementor. Riddle abandoned Merope before their child's birth, soon after which Merope died. [13] Some literary analysts have considered possible meanings in the name: Philip Nel believes that Voldemort is derived from the French for "flight of death",[14] and in a 2002 paper, Nilsen and Nilsen suggest that readers get a "creepy feeling" from the name Voldemort, because of the French word "mort" ("death") within it and that word's association with cognate English words derived from the Latin mors.[15]. When her husband found out she was a witch, he abandoned her while she was pregnant (HBP10). Putting all of the character's transformations and youthful flashback incarnations aside, Fiennes' face is the one fans remember as being the definitive image of the present-timeline, resurrected Lord Voldemort. Like Salazar Slytherin, the Gaunts spoke Parseltongue. In Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, it is revealed that Bellatrix gave birth to Voldemort's daughter Delphi in Malfoy Manor before the Battle of Hogwarts. Voldemort's goal is to teleport Harry under Dumbledore's watch as a reluctant participant to the Little Hangleton graveyard, where the Riddle family is buried. Perhaps when the inevitable Harry Potter reboot comes to pass, Izzard will be put forth as the next actor to play Lord Voldemort, and this time not just in a vocal capacity. The go-to source for comic book and superhero movie fans. In the very first Harry Potter movie, Lord Voldemort is still an enigmatic threat lingering in the background, but when the backstory of Daniel Radcliffe's character is explored via flashback, with Hagrid solemnly telling the story to a Hogwarts-bound Harry in a Diagon Alley public house, the dark wizard does make a brief appearance. Voldemort initially voices scepticism that his own magic might not be the most powerful,[7] but upon returning to power, he admits to his Death Eaters that he had overlooked the ancient and powerful magic which Lily Potter invoked and that would protect Harry from harm. In a fascinating twist of events, he also had a minor role in Onegin, a 1999 romance starring none other than Ralph Fiennes, who may feature later in this very list. Look no further because you will find whatever you are looking for in here. [24] Riddle was outwardly a model student, but was in reality a psychopath who took sadistic pleasure in using his powers to harm and control people.

Needless to say, the critically acclaimed actor was a resounding success in the role, managing to eke out every last drop of his character's venomous, sinister personality from J. K. Rowling's original book series and giving younger fans nightmares for years to come. Fiennes said with a chuckle: "I have no doubt children will be afraid of me now if they weren't before." Having previously written for various sports and music outlets, Craig's interest soon turned to TV and film, where a steady upbringing of science fiction and comic books finally came into its own. In an attempt to achieve this future, Delphi travels to Godric's Hollow on the night Voldemort killed Harry's parents, hoping to avert the prophecy that led to her father's downfall. First appearing in 2005's The Goblet of Fire, Fiennes would go on to make the villainous role his own, appearing in each of the remaining Potter films in varying capacities. [7] Dumbledore states that Voldemort's knowledge of magic is more extensive than any wizard alive[52] and that even Dumbledore's most powerful protective spells and charms would likely be insufficient if Voldemort returned to full power.
