Fiennes Named As 'Harry Potter's' Lord Voldemort
August 5, 2004
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Ralph Fiennes will put a face on evil for the next "Harry Potter" installment.
The 41-year-old actor will star as the nefarious Lord Voldemort in the Mike Newell-directed "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire."
The fourth part of the blockbuster fantasy series, based on the books by J.K. Rowling, marks a turning point for the boy wizard who meets with the evil Death Eaters, experiences his first crush and witnesses the death of a friend. In "Goblet," Harry enters a contest known as the Triwizard Tournament, which includes competitors from three wizarding schools: Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang.
Lord Voldemort, aka You-Know-Who or He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, has hitherto appeared only in spirit form after a backfired spell leaves him without a body. Harry's nemesis was actually born Tom Marvolo Riddle, which is an anagram of "I am Lord Voldemort." The wicked wizard killed Harry's parents and in ways, complements the boy. Not only do the two wield identical wands, but they also both speak Parseltongue, the language of snakes.
Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson return to "Goblet" as Hogwarts students Harry, Ron and Hermione.
Other new additions to the "Harry Potter" family include: Brendan Gleeson as Mad-Eye Moody, Robert Pattinson as Harry's friend Cedric Diggory, Stanislav Ianevski as Quidditch star Viktor Krum, French actress Clemence Poesy as Beauxbatons student Fleur Delacour and Katie Leung as Harry's love interest Cho Chang.
Filming began in late June, and "Goblet" is set for a November 2005 release.
Fiennes' film credits include "Schindler's List," "Quiz Show" and "Red Dragon." He next appears in the upcoming films "The Chumscrubber" and "The Constant Gardener."
