Tom Reddl: the villain's role and the actors who performed it
Riddle is an interesting character, but forwatching (reading) a story about a boy who survived by accident surviving a "Harry Potter" fans do not have time to feel his fate. Childhood of the most significant wizard was practically not displayed, and those who played it, the general public are unknown. It's time to eliminate this regrettable fact. To reveal the mystery not only of the antihero, but also of those who embodied it on the screen.
Tom Reddle is an antagonist in the series of Harry Potter novels. He is better known as the Dark Lord.
Tom Reddle and the Dark Lord
During his studies at the school of sorcery, Thomas MarvoloRiddle was a diligent student and considered himself a master. A young wizard, who for a long time believed in the purity of his blood. Later he found out that his mother had magic powers, but not his father, as he wanted.
The irony was that at the openingthe famous school founder of the faculty of Slytherin (grandfather Thomas) preferred the selection of candidates for the purity of blood. Thus, although Tom Reddle was the best magician in the wizarding world, he could not have gone to Hogwarts Castle to his favorite faculty, if he had not concealed his origins. Then this character, calling himself Volan de Mort (in translation from the French language "Lord of Death"), arranged terror.
Appearance and aristocracy of his behaviorTom Reddl is obliged to the father, these qualities and he used to attract the attention of the fairer sex. However, for the same reason, he won the dislike of the male part of the students.
Who played the young Lord?
If the film was filmed only by Chris Columbus, Tom Riddle's role would be played by Jamie Bauer or Frank Dillane.
Originally a black sorcerer acted British-born actor Bremmer Richard.
However, in the subsequent parts of the film, the role was given to Coulson Christian and Frank Dillane.
If you go in chronological order, then firstThe actor among those who played Tom Reddle was Richard Bremmer. The actor's face is hardly shown in the first part of the Philosopher's Stone, when Hagrid tells Harry why no one calls a dark sorcerer by name.
Flashback demonstrates the scene of the murder of the Potters and the magical salvation of the Survivor. Bremmer Richard in a black robe under the cover of night is one of the best scenes that are remembered for the viewer.
In the second film "The Secret Chamber" appearsthe first mention of the young Tom Riddle, his role is performed by the thirty-seven-year-old actor Coulson Christian. Harry kills him - like a memory from a diary - using the poisonous fang of a giant snake.
In the sixth movie "Half-Blood Prince," Tom Reddle becomes a character played by Frank Dillane.
Raf Fiennes played throughout the history of the Dark Lord who rose from non-existence.
Where were actors shot?
In the film about the wizard boy was involvedmany people. Any role is not capable of overshadowing the former merits of the performers, not an exception, and such a character as Tom Riddle. Actors who played the Dark Lord, were seen in other films.
So, British actor Coulson to the role of Tom Reddle was the executor of one of the main roles of the movie "Watch", which was released simultaneously with the second part of "Harry Potter".
True, the difference between showing movies inRussia was 4 months old. We can say that the acquaintance with the actor on the big screen began precisely with the role of Tom. Before that, Christian could be found on TV shows, but the Russian viewer could not see them.
Before the release of the first film of the magic saga of British actor Richard Bremmer, our viewer could see in the beautiful film of the late nineties "The Thirteenth Warrior", where Rick played a character named Skalde.
Fiennes Rafe - the most titled actor on the listthe role of Tom Reddle, he had already been awarded the Oscar statuette for participating in the Schindler's List and the English patient by the time of the shooting in the Harry Potter movie. Also known to the Russian viewer on the series "Doctor Who."
Such stars played the role of just one character in seven Harry Potter stories.
How did the Dark Lord appear in books?
Many fans of Rowling's work know that she manipulated names well, borrowing them from various sources.
Some were simply borrowed from otherstales and legends, so it's no surprise that after the film was released, the author of the wizard boy was involved not in one, but in a number of scandals, where she was accused of plagiarism.
Since the speech in the article is about a dark sorcerer, we'll start with him.
The name of Volan de Mort (in his youth Riddle) isDerivative on behalf of the little-known evil wizard of the Woldermorean (meaning "Lord of Evil"). In the case of the Harry Potter book, the long name literally translates as "The Dark Lord."
The Scandinavian word "wave" means "violence" or "force", also a "ditch with water" (at least in Denmark).
You can remember the Danish king Voldemar the Fourth, who was famous for his love of violence and endless tax collections. He was a clever, cynical, determined ruler.
The most probable origin of the name of the young lord is the use of the French language by the author, where he washed away the words "tom de mort" - this is literally "theft of death".
