Ralph Fiennes    

English Actor Known for his Roles in "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "Schindler's List" & The "Harry Potter" Franchise

Ralph Fiennes made his television debut in the British series, "A Dangerous Man: Lawrence After Arabia" in 1991. His first film role followed in 1992 with "Wuthering Heights," in which he starred opposite Juliette Binoche. Fiennes's big break came next: the role of Nazi commandant Amon Goeth in "Schindler's List." His performance in the film garnered him an Academy Award nomination (Best Supporting Actor) and a British Academy Award.

Fiennes went on to star in "The Baby of Macon" and Robert Redford's "Quiz Show." He then returned to the stage, and earned a Tony Award in 1995 for a Broadway production of Hamlet.

In 1996, Fiennes received Oscar and Golden Globe nominations (Best Actor) after playing the title role in "The English Patient." This film, along with his role alongside Julianne Moore in "The End of the Affair," developed Fiennes's reputation as a heartthrob.

Fiennes played dark, disturbed characters in 2002's "Spider and Red Dragon." That same year, he showed off his versatility as the romantic interest for Jennifer Lopez in "Maid in Manhattan."

Around this time, Fiennes was notably cast as the wicked wizard Lord Voldemort in the wildly successful "Harry Potter" franchise. More recent films include "The Constant Gardener" and "The White Countess," which were both released in 2005, and "The Reader" opposite Kate Winslet . Fiennes then appeared in the 2009 Best Picture Oscar winner, "The Hurt Locker," and the James Bond film "Skyfall." Later, Fiennes was part of the ensemble cast of Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel." for which the actor earned a Golden Globe nomination.
