Top 10 of the Famous Actors who Played Best Villain
You can’t say that a movie is a good one when one of the most important parts is not played well. I don’t mean the protagonist, but the other one. You know what I’m talking about – You know them, you hate them, but if you’re like me, you can’t help but love them. These are the villains of your favorite stories, and I say to you, my readers, that they are the most important part of those stories.
I have long had a fascination with the villains in stories. And why is that? Because the villain drives the story.
Without the villain there is no story. What was once your hero is now some ordinary person (though probably with powers or some sort of destiny they must fulfill) but they have nothing holding them back. It’s true that there are other ways to cause conflict.
Those are all great in their own regard, but I think of them more as seasoning. What I mean by this is that they help spice up the story. The story (in most cases) should still have an antagonist, especially when telling a story through a digital medium such as in movies. So in this series I want to look at what makes a good villain. Because by making a spectacular villain, so storytellers can often save an otherwise dull story or make the story just that much better.
