Hero Beauregard Fiennes-Tiffin made his first film appearance as Spartak in the 2008 drama, Bigga. The performance led to a significant role as the young Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the sixth instalment of the Harry Potter films. The son of George Tiffin and Martha Fiennes, Hero joined his uncle, Ralph Fiennes on screen (Ralph played the mature Lord Voldemort). Harry Potter director David Yates has said that he cast Hero because he liked the dark haunted quality of the young actor.
Since his debut, Hero has featured in the film version of Private Peaceful in 2012 directed by Pat O’Connor and playing the young Charlie. He is currently filming The Man in the Box, a film about a family who take a Jewish doctor into hiding during the war in Nazified Austria. The film is directed by Arsen A. Ostojic.
