BIOGRAPHY:

Eldest of 6 children born to photographer Mark Fiennes and his wife, Jini - aka Jennifer Lash - a novelist. Siblings are Martha Fiennes, a director; Magnus, a musician; Sophie, a producer; and twins Joseph Fiennes, an actor, and Jacob, a gamekeeper. Foster brother Michael (Mick) is an archaeologist. Cousin is British explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Attended Bishop Wordsworth Boys' School, the Chelsea College of Art & Design, and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Joined Britain's Royal National Theatre in 1987 and the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1988.


TRIVIA:
  • Broke up with 'Francesca Annis' (qv) [February 7, 2006].
  • When he noticed that children watching the filming were scared of him as "Voldemort" in _Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)_ (qv), he knew he had the character right.
  • Won the 1995 Tony Award (New York City) for Actor in a Drama for "Hamlet" and was nominated for the 2006 Tony Award (New York City) for Actor in a Drama for "Faith Healer".
  • 8th cousin of 'Prince Charles' (qv).
  • Filmed his role as Lord Voldemort in _Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)_ (qv) (2005) in only two days.
  • Older brother of 'Martha Fiennes' (qv) and 'Joseph Fiennes' (qv).
  • Has appeared in two Best Picture winners (_Schindler's List (1993)_ (qv) and _The English Patient (1996)_ (qv)), and a Best Animated Feature winner (_Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005)_ (qv)).
  • Fiennes was reluctant to take the role of Lord Voldemort in _Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)_ (qv). In a television interview on AMC's _"Sunday Morning Shootout" (2003)_ (qv) (November 20, 2005), he claimed to have been unimpressed with the previous three Harry Potter films. Fiennes was apparently nonplussed at the idea of appearing in the fourth film of a series and stated that he had "never bought into [the] world" of Harry Potter. Family members urged him to take the role while other friends counseled against it. He eventually changed his mind after Goblet of Fire director 'Mike Newell (I)' (qv) showed Fiennes preproduction conceptions of what the character of Voldemort might look like: "The little kid in me that likes to dress up and be bad went 'Yeah! I want to do it!'".
