In today's New York Times magazine, there is a gorgeous Style spread featuring Ralph Fiennes. In the accompanying article, Mr. Fiennes discusses establishing character without a single word, through the character's clothing and appearance. Here's a snippet of the Voldemort bit:

"He appears near the end of the film and, despite immense expectations, is completely terrifying. This may be because his nose has been removed. 'At first, it wasn't scary enough,' Fiennes said. 'They had to fix my lack of nose. And I was helped by lots of shadows -- that increased the menace. So much of movie acting is in the lighting. And in loving your characters. I try to know them, and with that intimacy comes love. And now, I love Voldemort.'"
