HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE

RALPH FIENNES (Lord Voldemort) plays the coveted role of one of literatures most terrifying villains – the evil Lord Voldemort

After studying art, Fiennes realized that his real passion was acting, which led him to RADA. After graduating, he won his first roles that summer in Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Ring Around the Moon, all at the Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park.

Following further theatre roles, he joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1988. His most notable and critically acclaimed performances during his two seasons with the RSC included Henry VI, Edmund in King Lear and Berowne in Love's Labours Lost.

In 1991, Fiennes won his first television role in the award-winning Prime Suspect. His big-screen debut came when he starred as Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. After this, Fiennes starred in Peter Greenaway's The Baby of Mâcon, but it was his role in Wuthering Heights that brought him to Hollywood's attention. Spielberg cast him opposite Liam Neeson as the Nazi officer Amon Goeth, in the critically acclaimed Schindler's List, for which he was awarded not only the New York Critics' Best Supporting Actor, London Film Critics' Best Actor, and the National Society of Film Critics, but was also nominated in both the Golden Globes and Academy Awards.

Further high profile roles followed in a number of highly acclaimed films, including Robert Redford's Quiz Show; the Academy Award-winning The English Patient, for which he received his second Academy Award nomination; Oscar and Lucinda; The End of The Affair and Red Dragon. Other films he starred in include Onegin, Sunshine, Spider and Maid in Manhattan

Fiennes was most recently seen in Fernando Mereilles' film adaptation of John Le Carré's The Constant Gardener, and will next be seen in Merchant Ivory's The White Countess. He will also be the voice of the dastardly Victor Quartermaine in the upcoming Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, as well as play a supporting role in Martha Fienes' Chromophobia

In December 2002 he opened at the Royal National Theatre in a new play by Christopher Hampton, The Talking Cure, in which he played Carl Jung, directed by Howard Davies. In 2003 he starred in the title role of Ibsen's Brand for Adrian Noble at the RSC, and in 2005, he played Mark Anthony in Deborah Warner's new stage production of Julius Caesar.
