Over the years, Fiennes has featured in many memorable films such The Grand Budapest Hotel, The English Patient and Schindler's List.

His ardent fans know him as the man who essayed the role of Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter franchise and as the most recent "M" in James Bond films Skyfall and Spectre.
