Great NEW Ralph Fiennes interview
In another great interview, this time for
Dark Horizons the brilliant Ralph Fiennes talks in length from his LA hotel suite about past work, current projects and of course Goblet of Fire.
The actor says that there is a clear difference between working on something such as The White Countess, the new film from Merchant Ivory, and the latest multi-million dollar installment in the Potter franchise. "Well, the atmosphere of the movie is completely different, in that they have so much money on Harry Potter that they can take their time. You can get three or four set-ups a day and things are very leisurely and it's also compounded by the fact that the children have different hours to the adults, so, it's a whole different ballgame," explains the actor., further conceding that he enjoyed the fact that on Potter, "I was grateful to have two weeks to shoot this one scene in Harry Potter." Fiennes is referring to the film's climax, in which his demonic Lord Voldemort is fully revealed, with bald head and sweat pouring down an evil visage. "It's a big, big scene, but they have to deliver and, as I'm continually being made aware by everyone I talk to, they have high expectations." It's quite a moment for Potter films, and he hopes for the desired response from his target audience. "I have no doubt children will be afraid of me now if they weren't before," he says, with a dry chuckle.
