Now 59, Fiennes revealed at the premiere of his new film The Menu in New York City that if the opportunity arose, he’s ready and willing to pick up the mantle of Lord Voldemort again.
“Sure, of course,” Fiennes told Variety when asked if he wants to play He Who Must Not Be Named again. “No question about it.”
A role reprisal doesn’t seem to be too far out of the realm of possibility – Fiennes’ comments, after all, follow those made by Warner Bros. Discovery executive David Zaslav earlier this month, where he revealed the company would be interested in making “something with J.K. [Rowling] on Harry Potter going forward”, according to the outlet.
Rowling, however, has been under fire for her very public transphobic comments, with much of the original cast distancing themselves from the franchise’s creator as a result.
