Ralph Fiennes says he would absolutely reprise his role of Lord Voldemort again

Ralph Fiennes says he would absolutely reprise his role of Lord Voldemort again

The Harry Potter actor said there was 'no question about it'.

Ralph Fiennes says he would reprise his role as magical supervillain Lord Voldemort in a heartbeat.

The Harry Potter star revealed he was still interested in donning the dark wizard's robes in future films and continue playing 'He Who Must Not Be Named'.

When asked by Variety if he would play Voldemort again, the answer was clear.

"Sure, of course," Fiennes said. "No question about it."

It comes after Warner Bros. Discovery chief David Zaslav's comments on potentially working with J.K Rowling on more Harry Potter films.

Fans were a little confused by the update from the Harry Potter actor, with many asking how the hell his character would come back considering he, you know, died at the end.

One Twitter user said: "How? Unless they do Cursed Child there is no way. His story is over."

Another added: "He literally turned to dust in Deathly Hallows Part 2, how could he possibly return!?"

A third just lashed out at Fiennes' recent defence of J.K Rowling and her anti-trans views, adding: "And Voldemort would start hunting transgender kids, all in fun."

The actor told The Telegraph back in October that he understands where the billionaire author is 'coming from' and her opinion on gender ideology doesn’t make her a 'fascist'.

He also condemned activists who have hurled abuse at Rowling after she wrote a series of tweets in 2020 that were considered transphobic.

But, despite the low public opinion of the Harry Potter author, there could be more movies to come out of the wizarding world just yet.

Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav recently told investors during the company’s third quarterly earnings call that they are more focused on continuing franchises rather than original content.

"We haven’t had a Superman movie in 13 years. We haven’t done a Harry Potter in 15 years," he said, as per Variety.

"The DC movies and the Harry Potter movies provided a lot of the profits for Warner Bros. … over the past 25 years."

Zaslav went on to tell investors that he would like to see more films set in the Harry Potter universe as long as the studio can 'do something with J.K [Rowling]'.

Fans will undoubtedly get excited over this, especially considering there are no new Harry Potter books left to pull lore from.

There could be a film made about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage production that has taken the world by storm.

Or, just maybe, Rowling has a potential idea for another spinoff.

We could see Tom Riddle's backstory explored, which would give Fiennes a chance to reprise his role.

But who knows at this point.
