Tom Marvolo Riddle, better known as Lord Voldemort, is a corrupted wizard from the Harry Potter film series, based on his literary counterpart.


Lord Voldemort was originally a wizard who, in his quest for immortality and godliness, practiced many Dark Magic rituals that progressively corrupted his body into the form of a gaunt man with snakelike traits, such as slits instead of a nose and a very pale skin; this went along with Voldemort's natural ability to speak to snakes, an ability called Parseltongue.

Behind the scenesEdit

Voldemort's literary counterpart has several features that the film version lacks, such as glowign red eyes.
