Snowballs 2019: Worst Actor – Hero Fiennes-Tiffin (After)

Written by Film

Hero Fiennes-Tiffin is best known for his role as Hardin Scott in After and as young Voldemort, in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (2009), for me was most definitely the worst actor of 2019. Besides the fact that he was playing a character who is meant to be Harry Styles from a fan-fiction which is still insanely baffling. How did this film even get the go ahead? Heroes acting from start to finish is absolutely appalling.

I can’t think of a single time during After where there was an emotion that wasn’t a blank face from Fiennes-Tiffin. He literally had no feelings and I get that he was meant to be this cliche mysterious bad guy that girls all love to fall in love with, for me it was nothing more than dreadful acting. I felt no remorse, no feelings towards this kid and that’s not a good thing. I want to sympathise with characters but Heroes acting wasn’t allowing it for me.

Hero got his break playing 11-year old Tom Riddle in the sixth installemne of the Harry Potter seires in 2009.

And then there’s the lack of chemistry between him and his co-star and Josephine Langford. I found myself just not investing in the romance and as a result ended up on my phone for the majority of the film due to the sheer boredom. Let’s also not talk about how I definitely thought Hardin was Tessa’s brother until they kissed. Casting wise, mistakes were definitely made.

Overall, After is one of the worst movies of the decade, not just for the acting but also the screenplay, the plot, everything. It is a disgrace to cinema. Someone send these kids back to acting school. Please.

    Could not agree more! He was awful!!! Felt bad for the other actors as he is just so bland. Sounds like he’s just reading the lines and not acting them. Sorry but you can’t rely on just good looks. Spent most of the film on my phone too.

    Then explain how they won an award?? They had so much chemistry.

    This is the first time in this entire year that I’ve heard that Hero and Josephine look alike. Anna Todd made an AMAZING choice making Josephine Langford & Hero Fiennes Tiffin, Tessa & Hardin. They both fit there characters amazingly, You could tell onscreen that they had chemistry. I don’t know but in my opinion , After was amazing. I loved everyone’s acting & I know so did thousands of others.
