USA Today has released the first official picture of Hero Fiennes-Tiffin in character as the young Tom Riddle, the boy who will grow up to be the evil Dark Lord Voldemort, in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. To mark the occasion, here are a handful of screen captures depicting the various actors and special effects that have played Voldemort at various points in his life:
Another actor, Frank Dillane, has been cast as the teenaged Tom Riddle in Half-Blood Prince — Christian Coulson, the actor who played him in Chamber of Secrets, is 29 now, so he’s almost certainly too old for the part! — but no pictures of him in character have surfaced yet. When they do, I’ll update this little gallery.
JUL 14 2010 UPDATE: I have now added Dillane’s picture above.
I have also added a picture of Voldemort from the climax to Deathly Hallows, as per the trailer that was released a few weeks ago; between that and the picture I already had from Goblet of Fire, I figured it would be good to capture both the beginning and ending of Ralph Fiennes’ take on the character.
