I think I have a little bit of a problem.
So when I’m watching a movie, and something happens to a character, I sometimes have this moment of disbelief that they would do that to that actor. Not the character, but the actor.
Ya’ll know how much I love Ralph Fiennes, right? You should. I’m obsessed with him. Yes I know he’s 25 years older than me, but he’s still uber sexy and I don’t care what you say.
Now, I also think we all can agree that he’s an amazing Voldemort.
But when Voldemort dies in the last Harry Potter movie, I was distraught! Thinking “OMG how on earth could they kill Ralph?! HOW!?” I didn’t really care all that much that Voldemort was dead (even though him flaking away like that is super lame), but I was more upset about Ralph dying. Who do these people think they are?!
Another example would be Alan Alda. You probably know him from M.A.S.H as Hawkeye Pierce. He’s pretty funny and uber talented.
Now, in 1997, he did this little movie called Murder at 1600. If you haven’t seen it, there are spoilers ahead. I know I didn’t warn about spoilers for Harry Potter, but if you don’t know how Harry Potter ends then I’m not even sure what you’re doing with your life. It’s fine if you haven’t read the books and/or seen the movies, but you should know by now how it ends. Thus no spoilers warnings for you.
Ok so in this movie, there is a murder at the White House and in the end, it’s found out that Alan Alda is a poop canoe and ordered it. He ends up being shot multiple times and dies in a hallway. Tres tragic!
And again, I’m not like “oh yeah, that character probably had that coming. He ordered the death of a 22-year-old innocent woman and made sure his hitman got through White House security” I’m more upset that they killed Alan Alda. WHO KILLS ALAN ALDA?!
Now, on the other hand, I have certain actors that if something bad happens to a character they are playing, then I’m like “ha! Serves you right!” A few on this list:
- Anne Hathaway
- Matt Damon
- Keifer Sutherland
