Hero Fiennes-Tiffin’s biographyHero Fiennes-Tiffin Is an English actor and model, famous for his role as 11-year-old Tom Riddle, the young version of the main antagonist – Lord Voldemort, in the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009). He’s also playing the main character in the movie After (2019). Net worth: $1 million.
Childhood and familyHero Beauregard Faulkner Fiennes-Tiffin was born on November 6, 1997, in London. His parents – directors George Tiffin and Martha Fiennes, sister of actors Ralph and Joseph Fiennes. The hero is not the only child – he has an older brother named Titan Nathaniel (born in 1995) and a younger sister named Mercy Jini Willow (born in 2001).
Hero went to Emanuel School in Battersea – a private school located in the Southwest part of London, founded in 1594 by Queen Elizabeth I. The school has also had graduates like the star of the series Lost Naveen Andrews and the director of Return of the Jedi Richard Marquand, actor Ben Moore, and other celebrities.
Acting careerHero made his movie debut when he turned 10. The boy starred in the English drama Bigga Than Ben (2008), telling the story of two Russian guys, who come to London seeking adrenaline and luck.
His second role, despite it being a secondary one, made him famous worldwide. Fiennes-Tiffin played the role of young Voldemort in the sixth Harry Potter movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009). Thousands of young actors auditioned for this part, but finally, Hero landed the role.
It’s quite likely that his relatives played their part in that: Voldemort’s role, after his rebirth, was played by Hero’s uncle, Ralph Fiennes. However, the director of the movie, David Yates, declared in an interview that the boy got the role exclusively because of his acting talent during the table read and the ability to drive out everything dark. The physical resemblance between the uncle and his nephew was another deciding factor.
The movie crew was very pleased with Hero’s work. Yates called Fiennes-Tiffin a very goal-oriented and disciplined young actor, who delivered his best interpretation of the mysterious character on screen.
He got his next role only three years afterward – the high school senior student made an episodic appearance in the war drama Private Peaceful (2012), the events of which take place during World War I in Flandria. Fiennes-Tiffin played the role of the protagonist in his early years; older Charlie Peaceful was played by Jack O’Connell.
When he turned 18, Hero already knew that he wants to pursue a career in the movie industry. He started auditioning actively, but he wasn’t always lucky. More specifically, Hero failed the auditions for Netflix’s Stranger Things, Dunkirk (2017), and The Hate U Give (2018). However, he still got something. In 2017, director Baz Luhrmann, the mastermind behind Moulin Rouge! (2001) and The Great Gatsby (2013), expressed his interest in Hero’s work. Luhrmann happened to be looking for an actor for his short-length movies for the collaboration of ERDEM and H&M.
The 4-minute movie The Secret Life of Flowers was shot in a suburban mansion, decorated luxuriously with flowers and candles. With the exception of Hero, several other talented actors made an appearance – model Fernando Cabral, the star of Amundsen Ruby Dagnall, Dutch artist Saskia de Brauw, actor Tom Rhys Harries and others. Similar to Luhrmann’s other movies, The Secret Life of Flowers turned up to be a real masterpiece, with his signature passion and drama.
After the release of the video ad from the famous director, Hero’s career skyrocketed. In 2018, Hero made an appearance in an episode of the series The Tunnel with Stephen Dillane and Clémence Poésy.
Soon enough, he landed a role in the series Safe, whose plot revolves around a pediatric surgeon (Michael C. Hall), a widower with two teenage daughters.
In January 2019, Fiennes-Tiffin appeared with a background role in the British drama series Cleaning Up, revolving around janitor Sam Cooke (Sheridan Smith), who unexpectedly is drawn into the dark world of finance.
Besides starring in movies, Hero is also working as a model. He signed a contract with modeling agency Storm Models and has already managed to appear on the covers of Indie and Wonderland, as well as participate in several fashion shows.
