My theme is Memorable Characters featuring characters from books, movies, and TV.
From: the Harry Potter series
Known For: dark magic, horcruxes, lack of a nose
I love the slow reveal throughout the series of what made Tom Riddle into the most feared wizard. Voldemort is barely spoken of, and his name surely never said aloud by any self-respecting wizard. So by the time we meet Voldy in the books & films, we expect him to be just as terrifying as the magic world considers him. Casting a powerful actor like Ralph Fiennes, I never once questioned Voldemort's potential for terror. That lack of nose and the cold, pale skin--plus all the snake connections--make him one of the best villains in literature and film. He's scary to look at, formidable to our gang of friendly wizards, and played masterfully by an incredible actor. Voldemort's defeat is a defining moment in the series.
OK, this Potter Puppet Pals video is old but I still love it. Warning: it will get stuck in your head!
