In this new interview, Mr. Fiennes discusses that film, filming in Africa, the death of his father and winning awards. He also has this to say about his turn as Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire:
"he eventually took the part of the evil Voldemort when "the little kid in me that likes to dress up and be bad said 'Yeah! I want to do it!'"
