Tom Felton’s Top Bad Guys as told to Total Film

While speaking with Total Film Magazine for their November feature on Tom’s upcoming appearance in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I,” Tom relayed his Top Ten favorite all time villains. No surprises on a few of them, but I’m mighty impressed Tom’s choices include villains from older films.

10. Harry Waters, In Bruges (2008)
Played By: Ralph Fiennes

Tom Says: “I recently saw Ralph in this and I thought that he was brilliant. I was like, ‘You’re not like that at all in real life!’”

9. Lord Voldemort, Harry Potter series (2001-2011)
Played By: Ralph Fiennes

Tom Says: “Ralph Fiennes scares the life out me, he really does.”

8. Blofeld, Bond Series (1963 – 1983)
Played By: Donald Pleasence (among others)

Tom Says: “The guy with the cat. The ultimate Bond villain.”

7. Jaws, The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979)
Played By: Richard Kiel

Tom Says: “I thought he was great as a kid – I loved him fighting Bond on the cable car. A great baddie, but still manages to get a girlfriend in space.”

6. Colonel William Tavington, The Patriot (2000)
Played By: Jason Issacs

Tom Says: “I’m a big fan of Jason Isaacs – got to be, he’s my Dad – but he’s brilliantly horrible in that.”

5. Hannibal Lecter, The Silence Of The Lambs (1991)
Played By: Anthony Hopkins

Tom Says: “He just delivers such malice. If you were young enough you could watch that and not understand he’s a bad person. He underplays it superbly, it’s a masterclass in acting.”

4. The Joker, The Dark Knight (2008)
Played By: Heath Ledger

Tom Says: “Obviously. Heath Ledger was amazing. So dangerous, you just didn’t know what he’d do next.”

3. Colonel Hans Landa, Inglourious Basterds (2009)
Played By: Christoph Waltz

Tom Says: “He’s right up there. He’s so scary and horrible. He’s doing Water For Elephants with Robert Pattinson so I might call him and ask if Christoph’s as creepy in real life.”

2. Dr. Evil, Austin Powers Series (1997 – 2002)
Played By: Mike Myers

Tom Says: “When he got mini-me it just got even funnier. He’s got a couple of great tunes – I love it when he sings ‘Just The Two Of Us’.”

1. Brick Top, Snatch (2000)
Played By: Alan Ford

Tom Says: “Alan Ford is amazing. He’s completely vile as Brick Top but he does it in such a funny way I was just cracking up.”
