Ralph Fiennes, Voldemort in ‘Harry Potter,’ to Receive Empire Award

LONDON — Actor-director Ralph Fiennes, who plays Voldemort in the “Harry Potter” franchise and M in the next James Bond film, will receive the Legend Award at the Jameson Empire Awards, which takes place in London on Sunday.

Fiennes, who has starred in more than 30 films, first came to international attention for his portrayal of the concentration camp commandant in “Schindler’s List,” for which he won the BAFTA and was Oscar nominated in 1994.

He was again nominated for an Academy Award in 1997 for “The English Patient.” He has received multiple BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, most recently for his performance as the concierge M. Gustave in “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”

Fiennes made his directorial debut in 2011 with “Coriolanus,” and returned to directing in 2013 with “The Invisible Woman.”

His upcoming film projects include the Coen Brothers’ “Hail, Caesar!” and the new Bond installment “Spectre,” in which he plays M.

Previous Empire Legend Award recipients include Tim Burton, Helen Mirren and Tom Cruise.

Empire’s editor-in-chief Morgan Rees commented: “When you look at the body of work he has given us, both on screen and behind the camera, he has achieved so much. I can’t think of anyone who deserves this award more. Ralph Fiennes is truly an Empire Legend.”
